Medical Records

With your permission, your care team will need to obtain all necessary medical records and test results in preparation for your first appointment. They will also advise you if any additional tests are needed. By gathering this information in advance, your first appointment will be as productive as possible.

In some instances, we may need you to sign a release form for your previous medical records. Your care team will instruct you further if this is necessary.

Navigation Program

A cancer diagnosis is overwhelming, often leaving patients wondering where to turn and what happens next. At MUSC Hollings Cancer Center, patients with complex diagnoses and their families don’t have to do it alone, thanks to our nationally-recognized navigation program.

We treat some of the region’s most challenging and complex cases with multidisciplinary care teams, and navigators are a vital part of the teams. A navigator acts as a liaison between the care team and the patient, helping ensure that the patient gets access to the care, treatment and resources they need and are kept informed about what to expect.
