Initial Consultation

You and your family will meet with one of our physicians and a nurse coordinator to learn more about the transplant process. The initial consultation takes about two hours.

During your appointment some of the things that the physician will discuss with you, include:

  • Your type of disease
  • Available treatment options
  • Your medical history
  • Psychosocial issues: family support and religious beliefs
  • Donor source, including how stem cells will be collected
  • Timing of BMT and the need for chemotherapy so the disease is in a minimum state or remission
  • Financial concerns and insurance coverage
  • Blood tests to determine previous infections
