Sharp Memorial Hospital
Cancer Genetic Counseling at Sharp Memorial Outpatient Pavilion
Helping you get the information you need.
At the Cancer Centers for Sharp HealthCare, we're here to help you get the best care possible, so you can focus on healing. We understand that while not all cancers are hereditary, some patients may be concerned about inherited cancer risk. That's why we offer cancer genetic counseling to help you and your family identify your risk for specific types of cancers.
Our genetic counselors will work with you to create a screening regimen customized especially for you, and will discuss further cancer prevention practices with you.
How it works.
Our team of experienced cancer genetic counselors provide ongoing support and will work with you to review test results and, if necessary, will help you develop a screening/prevention plan specific to your needs. Your counselor will meet with you to explain any appropriate genetic test, and the chance that these tests may reveal a hereditary risk.
If you're interested in genetic counseling, ask your primary care provider or oncologist if a genetics referral is appropriate based on your history.
Our cancer genetic counselors are uniquely qualified to deal with both the technical and emotional aspects of hereditary cancer risk. Our counselors have years of experience in inherited cancer risk and are certified by the American Board of Genetic Counseling. They are here to help you every step of the way — from interpreting genetic information to helping you make important decisions.
To learn more about cancer genetic counseling, please call us at 858-939-5218 or ask your primary care provider for a referral. If you need to send a fax, our fax number is 858-939-5206.
