Counseling for Cancer Patients in Southwest Georgia

Cancer can involve significant psychological, social and financial challenges for patients and their families. At the Phoebe Cancer Center in Albany, Georgia, helping our patients address these challenges is just as much a part of the healing process as medical treatment.

A social worker is always available to assist patients and families with any of these important non-medical issues. Support and encouragement are offered through a wide variety of services.

We can help with practical needs such as assistance with:

  • Lodging
  • Medications
  • Insurance issues
  • Financial counseling

And for patients and families struggling with the stress of a cancer diagnosis or treatment, our social worker provides both a sympathetic ear and practical advice.
