Make an appointment

If you have found your way to this page, you should already have an appointment with Sierra Nevada Cancer Center.

If you have not yet scheduled an appointment, please call (775) 883-3336 to make an appointment at any Sierra Nevada Cancer Center facility.

We are open Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm.

You will need to be referred to us by another physician. This referral could come from your primary care provider, a surgeon or any other diagnosing doctor.

Prepare for your visit

Before your first visit, please complete your patient forms.

You may also pick up the forms at any of our offices, or we would be happy to mail a packet to you.

Bring your completed forms with you on your first visit, drop them off at our office ahead of your visit, fax them to (775) 883-0877, or email the office manager.

You will also need to bring your insurance cards when you visit.

As a convenience, we have created a First Appointment Checklist.

What will happen during your first appointment

During your first appointment the doctor will review your medical history, records, and any tests that have been completed to date. He will do a thorough exam and review how your disease first manifested and how it has evolved. You will be able to share any challenges or complaints you have and ask the doctor any questions. The doctor will begin to develop your treatment plan, discuss your options, and order any additional tests that he feels are necessary.
