At Einstein, we believe in treating the whole person, not just the illness. Offering a full range of cancer support services, we provide you and your family with comprehensive, compassionate care before, during and after treatment. Our cancer support services include:
Your patient navigator will work closely with you through your cancer treatment and recovery process to help schedule your treatments, make sure your insurance provider covers your care, point you toward additional resources to answer any questions you may have, and more.
Being diagnosed with cancer can be stressful for you, as well as your family. By providing comprehensive symptom management and emotional support for you and your loved ones through your entire treatment and recovery, we help relieve some of that stress so you can focus on overcoming your cancer.
