Understandably, a diagnosis of cancer or a blood disorder is scary for a child and the child's family. Dealing with this fear and anxiety is essential to treatment and recovery. Our on-site psychologists offer psychological counseling services to patients and their parents when these needs arise. In addition, we provide neuropsychological testing, which can help determine if the illness or treatment is affecting a patient's cognitive abilities. The ease of having access to these services right in our centers alleviates a number of burdens, from traveling to another location and scheduling issues to the added financial component.
