Your First Appointment
We want to make your first visit a smooth, comfortable experience.
Several days before your appointment, you will receive a packet of information with more details about where we’re located, what to expect, and what you need to bring with you.
Please arrive about 30-40 minutes early to complete routine paperwork. You may also complete most forms in advance and bring them with you if you prefer.
Your first visit will be comprehensive, so plan to spend a full day with us (sometimes longer depending on what is needed for your particular care). Your appointment may include:
- A physical exam performed by your physician.
- Additional testing to help us outline your treatment plan.
- Meeting with a financial counselor to discuss your insurance coverage benefits.
- Meeting with patient support service representatives.
Your proton therapy treatment will likely not begin at your first appointment. We will allow ample time to answer questions and to discuss next steps.
We encourage you to bring a family member or friend to your appointment to join in the discussion. They may hear something you missed, think of different questions to ask, or help take notes.
We provide financial counseling to patients and families to assist with the financial burdens of cancer.
Texas Center for Proton Therapy participates in most health insurance plans, Medicare, Medicaid, and Health Insurance Marketplace plans.
You or your physician may need copies of your medical records for your ongoing care.
