Every Visit

We recommend dressing in comfortable clothes and footwear. For your appointments bring a sweater or throw, since it can be chilly in the clinic and treatment room. You and your doctor have a lot of information to share in a short amount of time. Please come with a written list of questions you would like to discuss. Provide a list of any new medications you may have been prescribed and dosages since your last visit. Inform your nurse of any labs or tests you may have had that were ordered by another physician. You may also find it helpful to bring a small notebook for keeping notes.

Northshore Oncology Associates doctors and medical staff provide care at St. Tammany Parish and Lakeview Regional Medical Center hospitals. Surgical services are available at both locations which are staffed with highly experienced physicians and nurses to provide comprehensive, safe, and quality care for patients.
