Cancer care typically involves many treatments from a wide range of doctors and specialists. As a result, it can be incredibly overwhelming, especially as you are trying to emotionally come to terms with your diagnosis and the journey ahead. That’s why several of our centers offer patients a dedicated medical professional called a cancer patient navigator. At some locations, you may have a social worker rather than navigator.
From diagnosis to recovery, cancer patient navigators are there to help guide you through the process and provide the answers and support you need.
To contact the Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center cancer patient navigator, please call 703-523-1599.
