Oncology Genetics

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 providing access to innovative, comprehensive cancer care, with an emphasis on preventative screenings.  An integral part of our program includes Patty Martins, an Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioner.  Our team of nurse practicioners brings highly specialized training in Genetics to our center.  Her services and collaboration with our Oncologists will help identify families at risk of a genetic condition, while offering education and recommendations.

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.
