Preparing for Your First Visits

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

Parking is available in front the cancer center.

When you arrive at the OSF Cancer Care 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 be for educational purposes. You will meet your nurses, who will educate you on your treatment and lifestyle adjustments. Depending on your type of cancer, you might watch an educational video. They will provide you with strategies for dealing with issues like treatment side effects and loss of appetite. In addition, some treatments require pre-medications.

Your first treatment visit, especially for chemotherapy, can take longer. You will need labs drawn, and your medication might be delivered at a slower rate to monitor for reactions. We supply reading material, snacks, tablets, drinks, warm blankets and pillows but feel free to bring your own.

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