Preparing for Your Visit

This information is provided to help you plan for your appointment. For questions or to reach any member of our care team, call 773.296.7089.

Appointments

  • To schedule an appointment, contact our patient service representatives at 773.296.7089. Translation services are available for many languages.
  • Our highly trained medical assistants and oncology nurse care coordinators can address your concerns and help you get comfortable with your visit.
  • During treatment and after, we will communicate with you and your referring physician to provide a summary of your treatments and recommend follow-up care.
  • Co-pays should be made at the time of service.

New Patient Forms and Records

New patients should print and complete the form below. Because a cancer diagnosis requires your physician to look at all aspects of your health, this form is a comprehensive health assessment. Please complete as much as the form as possible before your visit to help our team diagnose and treat you. However, if you need help with any of the sections, we would be happy to assist you.

Remember to sign each form and bring it with you to your appointment.

New Patient History Forms

Please bring the following to make sure your visit goes as smoothly as possible:

  • Insurance cards or public aid card
  • Photo Identification
  • Physician referral. If you don’t have one, you may be asked to reschedule and may be responsible for paying the full cost of the visit.
  • Your co-pay for your physician visit and/or treatment, if applicable
  • Copies of any medical services or test results (blood tests, X-rays, MRIs, biopsies, etc.) not performed by a physician at Illinois Masonic Medical Center

You can have your records faxed to us at 773.296.7736.
