Welcome to the Carbone Cancer Clinics
Welcome to our Carbone Cancer Clinics. To make your visit here easier, please read below.
Checking in: You begin every visit by checking in at the Registration Desk (1).
Lab draws: If you are scheduled for a lab draw, you are given a pager. Please wait in our
Clinic Waiting Room (2). When your pager goes off, go to the Cancer Lab (3).
The Cancer Lab gives you a slip of paper after your labs are drawn. This paper is used to let
clinic staff know you are ready to see your doctor. If your doctor is on the main level, please put
the slip of paper in the basket at the Registration Desk (1). If your doctor is in the First Floor
Cancer Clinic (J3/1), please take the elevator to the first floor and put the slip of paper in the
First Floor Cancer Clinic Reception Area (4) basket.
Tests: If you are scheduled for tests like an x-ray, CT scan, MRI, or EKG, go there next (9 or
10). If you have a doctor appointment after your test, please go to the Registration Desk (1)
when your test is done to let staff know it is done.
Doctor appointment: If your doctor sees you in the First Floor Cancer Clinic (J3/1), please take
the elevator to the first floor. Check in at the First Floor Cancer Clinic Reception Area (4) and
wait there. If your doctor is on the main level, please wait in the Clinic Waiting Room (2).
When done: When you are done with your doctor appointment and tests for the day, please go
to one of the Schedulers’ Desks (5). The scheduler will make your next appointment and give
you a summary of the day’s visit.
Chemotherapy: If you need a treatment in the Chemotherapy Room, please go to the
Chemotherapy Check in Desk (6). Sit in the Chemotherapy Waiting Area (7) until your nurse
comes to get you.
We may need to wait for your doctor to sign chemotherapy orders or for lab results to come
back. If you prefer not to sit in the waiting room, please ask for a text pager at the Chemotherapy
Check in Desk. With a pager, you can go to other places in the hospital such as the cafeteria, gift
shop, or pharmacy while you wait. When your nurse is ready for you, your pager will buzz with
a note to return to the Chemotherapy Room.
Your next appointment will be given to you in the Chemotherapy Room or mailed to you.
Prescriptions: If you need prescriptions filled, please pick them up at the Cancer Outpatient
Pharmacy (8) before you leave.
