Distress Screening

Stress Impacts Health

Health stressors touch almost every aspect of patients’ lives, affecting not only their physical well being. We believe that addressing patients’ emotional health is very important – both for improving quality of life and overall outcomes.

In order to better address these needs, we have developed a brief questionnaire which will help us identify some of the causes and level of distress our patients are experiencing. Patients can experience many emotional ups and downs throughout their course of care. Therefore, we will have them repeat the questionnaire throughout treatment, and at their one-year follow-up appointment.
