Genetic Testing

Hereditary Cancer and You

Up to 10% of all cancers develop because a person inherited a genetic mutation in a way that encourages the disease to grow. Individuals with genetic mutations are far more likely to develop certain cancers, often at much earlier ages than the general population. At your appointment, your healthcare provider will determine your hereditary cancer risk based on your personal and family history. Our office uses the Myriad myRisk Test to analyze 25 genes associated with overlapping cancer risk. The test result provides critical information for our healthcare provider to make optimal medical decisions and take action in building a personalized cancer risk-reduction plan. The Myriad myRisk analyzes cancer risk for Breast, Ovarian, Gastric, Colorectal, Pancreatic, Prostate, Endometrial, and Melanoma Cancers.

Download and print the Hereditary Cancer Risk Questionnaire and bring to your appointment.

DNA Drug Sensitivity Test

 

More than two million serious adverse drug reactions occur annually and account for at least $3.5 billion in unnecessary medical costs. Integrated Genetic Solution’s (IGS) integrated genomic tests provide you and your healthcare provider life-long information to reduce the risk of adverse drug events, therapeutic failures and unnecessary expenses.

It is well recognized that different patients respond in different ways to the same medication. The need for patient-specific medicine is clear.

IGS’s integrated genomic solution — which includes the unique combination of pharmacogenomics testing and therapeutic drug monitoring — dramatically improves clinical judgment and helps healthcare providers form a more accurate, comprehensive and effective treatment regimen for their patients.
