When you make an appointment with the Duke Pancreatic Cancer Program, you will speak directly with the clinical coordinator who will discuss your case with you.
The clinical coordinator will determine if any additional tests and appointments are needed. For your convenience, in most cases, your medical appointments and tests will be scheduled on the same day.
Your history will be reviewed with you before your arrival at Duke. If there are additional tests or procedures needed to fully evaluate your situation, these may be scheduled before or on the day of your clinic appointment.
Each of the team members work closely together to provide you with an optimal treatment plan based on their expertise as well as published literature. You will receive educational materials about recommended treatments.
At the end of your visit, you will receive a multidisciplinary plan of treatment that will be discussed with you by each of the specialists whom evaluate you. Your referring physician and primary care physician will receive a copy of your recommended treatment plan to assist with continuity of care.
