When to Seek Out a Texas Oncologist

With an estimated 1.7 million Americans likely to receive a positive diagnosis of cancer in the coming year, questions surrounding this disease and its care are not at all uncommon. When this condition is suspected, gaining the best possible medical care is of utmost importance. Some people, however, may not know precisely when to begin the search for a Texas oncologist or what factors to consider when doing so.

In general, the time to search for an oncologist is when a primary care physician or other healthcare provider makes the recommendation. This will be based on either strong suspicions that cancer is present or confirmation from test procedures, such as blood work or biopsies. To seek out a doctor to provide oversight for cancer treatments, consider these points:

• Doctor referrals – Primary care physicians and other practitioners are very likely to make recommendations on a Texas oncologist or several that patients may choose from. Take these recommendations seriously since they are often made based on personal experiences between one doctor and another. In addition, primary care doctors will generally recommend oncologists they know can treat the type of cancer their patient is believed or has been confirmed to have.

• Other referrals – It can also provide peace of mind to get referrals from family, friends and co-workers who have had positive experiences with oncologists in the past. Do keep in mind, however, that not every oncologist will specialize in a particular form of cancer.

• Background – After receiving names for referrals, it can be very helpful to look into different doctors’ backgrounds. Check out their specialties, the kind of office or center they practice in and the specialty area, if any, they treat.

The time to begin seeking out a Texas oncologist is generally after a diagnosis has been made or is suspected. When making the final choice of a doctor or group of doctors to provide oversight for a case, do look into backgrounds, practice specialties and take the time to meet with physicians in person to gain a sense of how he or she would proceed in the case.
