New Radiation Patients

Beginning cancer treatment can be daunting. We know that you will have many questions throughout the coming weeks and months, and we’re here for you every step of the way. Knowing exactly what to expect can help alleviate some of your concerns and provide a sense of calm for you and your family.

Our goal is to help you take control of your treatment by providing as much information as possible. The following steps outline what you’ll experience as a new patient here Big Horn Basin Regional Cancer Center:

  • Step 1: Your first appointment will be with our radiation oncologist, to determine if and how radiation is appropriate. You always have the ultimate say in choosing a treatment plan.
  • Step 2: Your second appointment is so our team can do a “simulation”, where we will prepare you for treatment (without receiving any medication at this time) and take a CT scan for planning purposes.
  • Step 3: During your third appointment, we will begin treatments and schedule the following treatments for a time that works for you.

No matter what stage of treatment you are in, we are always here to answer your questions and talk through your concerns. If you would like to talk to a nurse about what’s coming next or how to set up an appointment, please call 307.578.2140 or stop by our office.

  • "ER department went to great lengths to make this "out of towner" feel comfortable. Dr. Polley and Nurse Sarah were very professional and had a great bedside manner. It was my worst asthma attack and I felt very confident that I was getting top notch care."

  • "Had to bring my daughter for a shoulder injury, on July 4th. I was thoroughly impressed. The staff was absolutely great, very friendly and compassionate. They took great care of my daughter and explained the diagnosis and discharge orders with great detail. I only wish our ER back home could be this professional. I know this is a smaller town and more tight knit, but this hospital/ER could set an example for the rest of the country. Thanks to the staff, physician and PA for the excellent care."

  • "I was a walk in patient on 5/29/18. I had been sick for several days while on a month long motorhome trip. The reception staff was friendly and efficient. I was seen quickly by the PA on duty, Robert Lang. He listened to me, did an exam, diagnosed my illness as acute bronchitis, and prescribed the necessary medication. I was feeling better in just a few days which enabled me to enjoy the remainder of my trip. I was sick and a long way from home so I really appreciated the excellent and friendly care that I received."
