You do not need to have a doctor's recommendation to come to Roswell Park.
We treat all types of cancers, which means you do not need to have a rare or advanced type of cancer to be treated by our compassionate teams of specialists. Our comprehensive approach is one that benefits all patients by offering multiple treatment options, access to the latest therapies including clinical trials not available elsewhere, and supportive services that are meant to improve your quality of life, regardless of your type or stage of cancer.
What You'll Need When You Call Us
To help us match you with the most appropriate physician to meet your cancer care needs, please be prepared with the following information when you call.
- Full name and date of birth
- Preferred contact information
- Diagnosis information
- A list of all doctors involved in your care, including your primary doctor and any other physicians you may see.
