Calling for the First Time
When you make your first call to New Mexico Cancer Center (NMCC), you will speak with a New Patient Coordinator, who will:
- Describe the process of beginning care at NMCC,
- Answer your questions, and
- Set up an initial consultation.
Our goal is to ensure that your initial consultation takes place within 24 to 48 hours of your first call.
We value your time. We work hard to keep ourselves on schedule so you spend as little waiting time as possible. We can usually accommodate same-day appointments for urgent issues. If you are unable to keep an appointment please let us know 24 hours in advance – for any type of appointment at NMCC.
When You Arrive
When you come into our office, please check in at the front desk. Our receptionist will verify your address, phone number, current primary care physician and current insurance information. Please present all your medical insurance cards at each visit. (If your insurance coverage changes in any way, please let us know as soon as possible.) If you have waited more that 20 minutes after checking in, please notify the receptionist.
Patient care coordinators who work with your doctor will schedule your next appointment. They will also schedule any required tests or hospitalizations. Our nurses can help you schedule other appointments, such as chemotherapy or labs.
