  • Psychologists and psychiatrists

We also offer an Image Recovery Center® to help with the physical changes that may occur during cancer treatment.

An Integrated Approach to Treatment

When it’s cancer, you want a compassionate team on your side fighting together. A cancer diagnosis doesn’t just change your physical health, it affects every part of your life. At Memorial Cancer Institute, we treat more than just cancer—we care for all of you, with counseling, patient support services and support for your family as well. Learn about our Integrated Approach to cancer.

Patient Navigators

Finding your way through a healthcare system can be complicated, even when you’re feeling well. But when you or a loved one is facing a cancer diagnosis, it can be even more overwhelming. That’s why we offer the support of a Patient Navigator -- a specially credentialed oncology nurse who will provide you with the support you need, for your clinical care and beyond. Learn about our Patient Navigators.

Your Patient Navigator will review your diagnosis, guide you through the medical system, and help you overcome any barriers that you may face throughout your journey.

Patient Navigators can:

  • Help you get the doctor appointments you need, quickly
  • Help you with insurance or payment issues
  • Make sure you have transportation to your appointments
  • Answer any questions you may have
