Cancer Genetics Clinic - Lab Draws Only
Patients who have an appointment with the Cancer Genetics Clinic will come to the Cancer Center for their lab draw only. Appointments with the Genetics Counselor will be done virtually via a telmedicine visit.
The Cancer Genetics Clinic at MidMichigan Health offers information, personalized genetic counseling and coordination of genetic testing. The program’s goal is to identify people who may carry a genetic predisposition to developing cancer and provide useful information for them, their families and their health care team about their specific cancer risks and how to best manage them. Genetic counseling and testing are often very important first steps toward implementing vital screening and cancer prevention.
If you have not been referred to the Cancer Genetics Clinic but are concerned about the possibility of a hereditary cancer gene in your family, please discuss your personal/family history with your primary care provider to determine if a referral is appropriate.
