  • Genetic Counseling


Care Philosophy

As manager of the Cancer Risk Management program, I strive to ensure that patients with increased cancer risks are systematically identified, referred for genetic counseling as needed and followed on a regular basis in order to minimize risk of future cancers. We view the patient as a whole rather than focusing on one cancer/organ type as well as providing information and care to their families.
