How to Select a Provider

It is important to take time to carefully research and select the providers involved in your care.


Professional qualities to look for in a provider:

  • Is he/she board certified?
  • Does he/she follow NCCN Guidelines® or other evidence-based care?
  • How much experience does he/she have with your diagnosis?
  • Does he/she communicate with you effectively?
  • Does he/she thoroughly address your questions and concerns?


You will likely spend a lot of time with your care team, so feeling confident and comfortable is important.
