Making an appointment is as simple as calling our office:

Medical Oncology – 406-728-2539
Radiation Oncology – 406-329-5655

The most common way to become our patient is through a physician referral. We also welcome the opportunity to provide second opinions. We know how stressful initial diagnosis is, and we strive to keep waiting time for an appointment to a minimum. Be assured that our physicians will do their very best to help you.

We accept many insurance carriers – if you are unsure about yours, please ask. If you have a managed care plan that requires a referral from your primary care physician, it is your responsibility to make sure you have obtained a referral. Your referral may have a limit on the number of visits you are allowed and/or an expiration date. Please monitor this information and obtain updated referrals as required. We all try to help eliminate the worry, so you can concentrate on getting well.

We ask that you always:

  • Bring your insurance cards. Please show our receptionist your insurance card at every visit. If you are covered by a secondary insurance plan or have a Medicare supplemental plan, please make sure we have that information.
  • Let us know whenever you change your address, telephone number, employment, marital status or insurance.
  • Bring a list of your medications to each office visit; we review the prescription and over-the-counter medications that you are currently taking. If it is more convenient, bring your medication bottles with you. Remember that over the counter drugs include vitamins, herbs, aspirin, Tylenol, etc.
  • Write down any questions or concerns that you may have to discuss with your physician.
  • If you wish, bring someone with you to help listen to your physician’s comments and responses to your questions.
  • Make your next appointment every time you visit the clinic. This includes lab, radiology and chemotherapy or radiation appointments.

We understand that emergencies and special needs can occur, and we will do our best to accommodate your specific needs. We request that should you need to cancel an appointment that you provide as much notice as possible in order for us to enable another patient to see the doctor.

Once you make an appointment, all facets of our services–from the latest research findings to the most advanced technology–will be made available for your healing.

We encourage a friend or family member to accompany you to our clinic.
