What to Expect

Thank you for choosing Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center in Gilbert, Ariz. We look forward to meeting you and providing you with comprehensive and personalized care. The following includes information related to your initial appointment.

When you arrive, please park in the parking lot just north of Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center. When you enter the building, simply let the volunteers at the information desk in the main lobby know you are here for your first appointment.

You will begin your day registering with a Patient Financial Services Specialist. For this, you will need a valid photo ID and all insurance cards. The registration process may take up to one hour. We ask that you arrive at your scheduled time for your registration appointment. This will be followed by your appointment with the doctor. Please bring your completed Patient History Database form. The information will provide your physicians and care team with your current and past medical history. This is important to ensure the most appropriate care for your health needs. It is also helpful to bring a list of all your current medications with dosages.

Please be prepared for an extended day with us. As part of our comprehensive cancer care your physician may add additional testing/appointments during your first visit to provide you with the most complete care. We suggest bringing reading or entertainment material with you. Complementary Wi-Fi is available. Our lobbies provide puzzles and some magazines, along with televisions. Our Learning Center on the first floor offers additional reading material and iPads are available for check-out.

Your consultation may include a review of pathology slides you may have. This can cost approximately $300. Since this entails a review by our physicians, you will be responsible for this charge even if you cancel your appointment.

The Salt River Bistro, located in the main lobby on the first floor, is open Monday through Friday for breakfast, lunch, late afternoon snacks and meals to go. The Bistro serves healthy sandwiches, salads and soups, and features a full coffee bar.

Our website provides a wealth of information for you and your family. Please visit these specific pages to help you prepare for your first visit.
