We tend to be a large referral center and a majority of our patients are traveling at minimum 1-2 hours each way to get their treatment. Often this is closer to 4-5 hours. We tend to see them every 3 weeks before their treatments. However with that said, we have an online messaging system as well as we have our nurse check in on them hopefully once a week, especially folks that we tend to think may be high risk for side effects. We tend to only get labs every 3 weeks.
