We help you through every step in your journey. Our patient navigators and social workers guide you through the process, and support groups offer resources to you and your family. These and other resources continue to be available to you after your treatment ends.
Depending on your needs, you may benefit from meetings with counselors who specialize in psychology, medical family therapy, and survivor care. We also have on-site dietitians who provide counseling for your dietary needs during therapy.
Regular visits from therapy-certified dogs and their owners can provide a sense of companionship and reduce stress and depression.
Cancer Survivorship Programs
Our cancer survivor specialists create personalized plans to identify and treat the long-term effects of treatment. These plans also include screening regimens to watch for the return of cancer or the development of other cancers.
Boutique and Specialty Garments
Our boutique offers the latest trends in wigs, hats, caps, scarves, self-image products, and post-surgical garments. All Duke Cancer Center boutiques feature select complimentary items, made possible through the Duke Cancer Patient Support Program. Please call 919-307-0161 for information and a private consultation with a Self-Image consultant.
Financial care counselors can help you understand your options and answer questions about insurance and billing.
Our goal is to provide you with high-quality care and an outstanding patient experience. To best serve you and identify opportunities for improvement, we depend on the feedback of our patients. About two weeks after your first appointment, you may receive in the mail a patient satisfaction survey. Please take a few moments to complete the survey and return it in the postage-paid envelope provided.
If your feedback is urgent or if you wish to speak with someone, please contact our patient advocates at 919-862-5848.
