High-Risk Management and Prevention Program
All patients who undergo risk assessment receive an individualized care plan and recommendations on how to manage their risk. Our medical geneticist follows patients long term to ensure they are receiving the care they need as part of our High Risk program. Patients at increased cancer risk are kept up-to-date on evolving care guidelines. In our High Risk program, our medical geneticist can provide regular clinical exams, order imaging studies and prescribe preventive medications. Our High Risk program also offers information on lifestyle modifications including nutrition, supplements, and mind/body stress reduction programs.
