Invasive ductile breast cancer: What should I expect?

I was diagnosed with Stage 2 invasive ductal breast cancer(3 masses on left) two weeks ago. Is anyone here being treated in Phoenix and if so how long did it take you to get an medical or surgical oncologist? I have yet to be able to even set up an appt with an oncologist(I call daily). They say they are "triaging" patients and can't tell me when I can even set up an appt. This has become an extremely frustrating experience for me. I am a healthcare worker who came down here to "help out" during the height of Covid and was really impressed with Mayo. I am from Nashville and my physician can't even get answers. While I would prefer to stay here after my contract ends next week, I might be forced to head back to Nashville to be treated. My physician is Nashville feels I should be already be seeing an oncologist and developing a game plan.

I have a slightly different diagnosis but was diagnosed (biopsy) on April 15. Had surgery May 15. Are you trying to get into the Mayo system?
