Refer a Patient

We want to make it as convenient as possible for you to refer a patient to a Provision CARES Proton Therapy center in the Provision CARES Cancer Network.

Your call will be received by a dedicated physician referral coordinator who will walk you or your staff member completely through the process and answer any questions you may have.

Our radiation oncologists are happy to discuss your patient with you at any time during or after the course of treatment. We want to foster the best continuity of care possible and facilitate your patient’s transition back into your practice.

We ensure communication with you as your patient completes milestone appointments within his or her journey, such as an initial consult note and plan of care. We will refer your patient back to you if some adjuvant therapy or complementary course of treatment is appropriate, such as hormonal therapy. You will also receive an end of treatment note outlining any recommendations for follow up we have given the patient.

Our commitments to referring physicians include:

  • A mutually respectful and collaborative approach to communication and patient care.
  • Your patient will receive a comprehensive and individualized consultation.
  • Our radiation oncologists give an unbiased, experienced, and evidence-based opinion on the appropriateness of proton therapy for each patient.
  • Potential benefits, risks, and outcomes will be clearly communicated with each patient prior to treatment initiation.
  • We will earn your trust with our dedication to clinical excellence, paired with our Culture of CARE philosophy which focuses on respecting the dignity and value of every person.
