Genetic Counseling at Invision Sally Jobe
Here for your health

Genetic Counseling: Our genetic counselors can help your patients understand their risk for a variety of cancers.

Genetic counseling is a service provided by Invision Sally Jobe to help patients and families with a history of cancer better understand and manage their risk of developing cancer(s) through genetic risk assess- ment and genetic testing. This information may also impact current cancer treatment/surgical decisions. Our genetic counselor translates complex genetic information into understand- able recommendations for patients, physicians, and families.

The benefits of genetic testing may include:

• An explanation for your personal and/or family cancer history

• Information and evaluation of your risk of developing future cancers

• Help with making informed medical decisions including:

^ Treatment for an already diagnosed cancer

^ Surveillance for additional cancer risks

^ Preventative options for detection and prevention of future cancer

• Identification of at risk relatives for whom genetic testing may be recommended

• Qualification for clinical trial participation
