You Are Not Alone: Oncology Nurse Navigators

Piedmont Oncology provides an opportunity to take the stress out of your cancer journey at a time when you need to focus your energy on treatment, recovery and survivorship. The Oncology Nurse Navigator team knows a cancer diagnosis is frightening and overwhelming. We are committed to doing what we can to lessen your fears and empower you to take charge of your health.

Piedmont Oncology Nurse Navigators are specially trained oncology nurses who help sort through your needs and provide you and your family with education and support, helpful information about hospital services and community resources and serve as a liaison between you and your health care team. 

There are multiple ways of successfully treating this disease, but that means you need more information to understand. Navigators help by explaining things in ways that can be easily understood and help you determine what questions to ask your doctors.

Oncology Nurse Navigators Help You and Your Family with:

  • Understanding your cancer and the treatment plan your physician prescribed
  • Communicating with your doctor and healthcare team 
  • Identifying questions to ask your healthcare professional 
  • Connecting you to Piedmont care providers 
  • Linking you to cancer resources and services at the hospital and in the community 
  • Coordinating and scheduling appointments 
  • Finding help with transportation and lodging 
  • Getting answers to financial and insurance questions 

Our Oncology Nurse Navigators provide personalized, compassionate care throughout your entire journey and are available to you at no charge. We encourage you to call us with your questions and learn more about your cancer and the treatments and services available.
