The Genetics & Risk Assessment Center at the Saint Joseph Cancer Institute is the only one of its kind in the area.
Our staff works with recently diagnosed patients to help provide them information on their diagnosis, determine the likelihood that the cancer is inherited, coordinate genetic testing and provide accurate interpretations of the results.
Access to genetic testing for a variety of cancers continues to increase. Our goal at the Genetics & Risk Assessment Center is to give patients the information they need to make the best decision for them.
- Genetic Testing & Counseling
- Risk assessment for individuals and their families
- Cancer screening recommendations for individuals and their families
Self-referrals are accepted. Many insurance companies will cover all or a portion of the cost of genetic counseling and testing. There is a process of pre-certification available, so that a patient can know the amount of coverage ahead of time.
