Our survivorship program features an oncology nurse navigator who gets to know patients’ health in-depth to understand their unique concerns and help them access the services they need to thrive.


Yes. Virtual visits are available for residents of Louisiana and Mississippi.

Your yearly well-woman visit is a time to focus solely on your health. You and your OB/GYN will discuss the status of your health, your goals, and steps you can take to prioritize and improve your health, such as making healthy lifestyle changes and having recommended screening tests. The physician will check key indicators of health, including blood pressure and body mass index, and conduct a physical exam.

The survivorship phase of your journey with cancer starts at the time of diagnosis. Survivorship encompasses the services and support you need to maintain all aspects of health and wellness and manage the effects of cancer and its treatment for the rest of your life.
