The essence of this vital program is to connect patients with a unique professional advocate, a patient navigator, at Wilson Medical Center.
Our Patient Navigator, Lisa Herndon, serves as an advocate for patients and is a liaison between the patient, caregiver and the patient's professional medical team.
For those patients who are facing a possible diagnosis of cancer or who have a confirmed cancer diagnosis, the patient navigator can assist with:
- Working with primary care providers to ensure patients receive results in a timely manner
- Coordinating scheduling for appointments, tests, surgeries or therapies
- Providing education and emotional support to patients and their families
