​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Lung Cancer Rapid Assessment and Management Program (LungRAMP) allows patients who are suspected of having lung cancer to obtain consultation and state-of-the-art diagnostic inves​​tigations through a streamlined process. Specialist consultations, tests and, often, a biopsy are typically required to establish a diagnosis. The care we provide you will include some or all of the steps below.​

Within one to two business days of our office receiving a referral, you will be contacted by a thoracic surgeon’s or an interventional pulmonologist’s assistant to schedule a consultation and preliminary tests. Our nurse navigator will contact​ you two to three days later, to gather additional health information, provide ​support and answer your​ questions.​
