UNC Cancer Care Nurses ImageHow to make an appointment

You can contact us directly to make an appointment or you can have a doctor refer you to us. We welcome patients who are seeking second opinions.

Appointments are made between 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Eastern time, Monday through Friday.

To make an appointment, you can call:

What to bring to your appointment

  • physician's name, address and phone number
  • patient identification card if you have been seen before at UNC
  • insurance card and any other related forms required by your insurance company
  • a signed medical release form so that all needed medical records from other doctors can be sent to us
  • any medications you are taking or a list of those medications with the dosages
  • a list of any allergies you have
  • someone to come to the appointment with you

What to expect at your appointment

At your first visit: We will review your clinical information and you will meet the doctor who will care for you throughout your cancer experience. You may also meet a resident physician or fellow (physicans in speciality training) because we are a teaching institution.

At subsequent visits: Each physician sees their own patients at each appointment whenever possible. When your physician is away, your care will be covered by another faculty member in the program.
