Who delivers my treatment?

Who delivers my treatment?

A certified professional radiation therapist delivers the prescribed treatment and will help you before and after your treatments.  Your doctor, also known as a radiation oncologist, specifies what is to be treated and for how long. This includes the amount of radiation you will receive each day and the total number of treatment days. Your doctor will also manage any medical problems that may develop during your treatment. In the Radiation Oncology Department, each patient under treatment has a scheduled appointment at least once a week with his or her radiation oncologist. If a problem occurs outside of this scheduled appointment time, arrangements can be made to meet with the doctor or a nurse who works with the doctor.
