Genetic Counseling

Sometimes a medical condition is the result of a genetic change. Unlocking this genetic information can help you better understand the risk factors present in your family, which can go a long way toward improving wellness, prevention and even treatment.

The Cancer Team is committed to comprehensive cancer care, which is why we include genetic counselors as part of your care team. Genetic counselors are healthcare professionals who focus on genetics and its effects on many different medical conditions.

By understanding your personal and family genetic medical history, more informed decisions can be made in screening, testing and treatment selection. To learn more about genetic counseling, call 920 435-8326.
