What happens if I miss a treatment?

It is important that you receive your radiation treatments consistently, as scheduled. We strive to accommodate every patient’s schedule preference to the best of our ability. We do, however understand that sometimes treatments will be missed for various reasons and we hope that you will work with us to keep this at a minimum.  If you need to miss a treatment you should call your respective department’s number and let us know as soon as possible.  You should ask to speak to a radiation therapist, or the receptionist to reschedule. Ultimately, you will receive the number of prescribed treatments required by your radiation oncologist.  In other words, your missed treatments will be added to the tail end of your therapy.
