Frequently Asked Questions

Should I cancel my treatment or follow-up appointments at Cancer Partners?

If you have a scheduled appointment at Cancer Partners and are experiencing respiratory symptoms (fever, cough, nasal congestion, runny nose), call us at 402-420-7000 to have a nurse determine the urgency of your treatment and appointment.

What should I do if I have symptoms?

If you develop a high fever, deep dry cough, fatigue and shortness of breath, stay home and call us at 402-420-7000 for guidance. If you feel ill enough to go to the emergency room, call ahead and let them know you have respiratory symptoms so they can provide guidelines and protect you when you arrive, please do not arrive at Cancer Partners or any emergency department with these symptoms. (A doctor’s recommendation is required for the COVID-19 test.)

What if a family member develops symptoms?

If someone in your household is sick, keep your distance. Wipe down surfaces with bleach wipes and wash your hands. You can encourage them to speak to their PCP regarding these symptoms. We are also requesting that you not bring anyone with you to Cancer Partners that display any symptoms.

What if I want to postpone my appointment?

Contact our health care team at 402-420-7000 or leave a message on the patient portal.
