Preparing for your first visit

Your first cancer treatment can feel stressful, but we will be with you every step of the way. 

Parking is available in the lot in front of the cancer center.

OSF Moeller Cancer Center_20191011_030.jpgWhen you arrive at the OSF Moeller Cancer Center, please check in at the front desk. You will need to bring your driver’s license, insurance cards and a list of any medications or supplements you are currently taking.

Your first visit will take longer than usual. You will meet your doctor and nurses, who will educate you on your treatment, medications and lifestyle adjustments. Depending on your type of cancer, you might watch an educational video. In addition, some treatments require pre-treatment medications.

Normal chemotherapy treatments typically take longer than radiation treatments, however, your first treatment visit may take even longer. Your care team will need to draw labs and any medications will be administered slowly to monitor for reactions. We supply reading material, snacks, drinks, warm blankets and pillows but feel free to bring your own. We can order you and a guest food from the cafeteria if your treatment occurs during lunch.

We make every effort to make your treatment as comfortable as possible.
