For patients without a primary care provider (PCP), you can now refer them to the PCP in the Oncology Express Unit and be assured of management and follow up by a PCP with a focus on oncology patients.

Here’s how it works:

  • Referring clinician or member of the practice calls the Oncology Express Unit to make the referral.
  • For patients who do not currently have a primary care provider only.
  • Patients will be followed by the Unit’s PCP until completion of treatment by a radiation, surgical or medical and/or hematologic oncologist.
  • After treatment patient will be connected to a community primary care provider.
  • Same-day appointments are available.

Hours: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, 8 a.m.- 12 p.m. Thursday, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Call 302-623-4501 to refer a patient.

Primary care providers play an important role in their patient’s cancer care. PCPs can address issues such a hypertension and hyperglycemia that might prevent or delay treatment. Patients without a PCP oftentimes seek management of issues of the primary health domain from their oncologist.
