Hereditary Cancer Genetic
Counseling Services


 

Genetic testing for hereditary cancer is complex and genetic test results are not always definitive.

Our knowledge of hereditary cancer genetics is advancing at an exponential rate. This fast pace makes it difficult to ensure patients receive the most up-to-date and credible information. Furthermore, hereditary cancer genetic counseling often involves obtaining extensive patient and family medical history, which can be a constraint for the appropriate utilization of genetic testing.

  • Risk assessment and recommendations for appropriate screening and management of cancer risk based upon patient and family medical history.

  • Genetic counseling consultations with experienced cancer Genetic Counselors at the convenience of the patient.

Reproductive Medicine Genetic Counseling Services
