Your first visit

Your first visit to MAASTRO Clinic

When you arrive at MAASTRO Clinic, please report at the reception in the central hall. 

The reception staff will direct you to the MAASTRO registration office where your personal details will be registered. We will need the following information to be able to register you:
  • Health insurance policy / health insurance registration
  • Your patient identification card
  • Valid ID
  • Citizen Service Number (Dutch: BSN-number)
  • List of medications

We ask you to bring this information on your first visit to the institute.
At MAASTRO Clinic, patients are registered under their birth name or maiden name if you are a female. You will need to report using your birth name at every visit to MAASTRO Clinic (intake, radiotherapy and check-ups). 

The receptionist will help you request a refund of your travel expenses from your health insurer.  

Then you will visit a radiotherapist-oncologist or a radiotherapist-oncologist in training. The radiotherapist-oncologist is your medical specialist, who is specialised in the treatment of cancer using radiotherapy. If you are taking any medication, we ask you to bring this on your first visit to the doctor. Any details of attending physicians at other hospitals where you may be in treatment will already be in our possession. The doctor will meet you and discuss the treatment options with you. The options for psychosocial care will also be discussed. During this conversation, the doctor will discuss the final treatment plan based on the details about your condition as well as a physical examination, and he will explain how radiotherapy works. The duration and effects of radiotherapy can be different for each patient. It is a good idea, especially in the beginning, to take a family member (or a good friend) with you so they can also learn about the process. Finally, you will decide together with your doctor whether or not you want to receive radiotherapy and the method to be used. If necessary, you can request some time to discuss matters with your family or your GP.

After your first visit

After your consultation with the doctor you will be received by an assistant. She will give you the necessary further information. Then you will go to a radiotherapist-oncologist or a radiotherapist-oncologist in training for the initial interview. Radiotherapists-oncologists are medical specialists who specialise in the treatment of patients using radiation. Any details of attending physicians at other hospitals where you may be/have been in treatment will already be in our possession. During this conversation, the doctor will discuss the final treatment plan based on the details about your condition as well as a physical examination, and he will explain how radiotherapy works. The duration and effects of radiotherapy can be different for each patient. It is a good idea, especially in the beginning, to take a family member (or a good friend) with you so they can also learn about the process. Please remember to take your medication or a list of medication you are taking to your first visit with the doctor. You will receive a letter after your first visit containing your appointments for the preparations and the first radiotherapy session.
