24-hour appointments

Meet with our cancer experts in as little as 24 hours

Getting diagnosed with cancer is difficult. Getting an appointment shouldn't be.

Having to delay getting answers about your recent cancer diagnosis may add needless stress and anxiety to your life. For that reason, we have created a program that allows qualifying patients to meet with a cancer expert in as little as 24 hours, if you were diagnosed with cancer less than a year ago and/or have met with a physician and cancer is suspected. At some City of Hope locations, you must also live within 100 miles of the hospital to quality for an expedited appointment time.
