Project Description

Personalized Approach to Lowering Risk & Disease Prevention

Our goal is to identify patients at increased risk of cancer and provide a reasonable strategy for prevention and early detection. We offer a number of tools to determine an individual’s risk of cancer and assess for other major diseases. We offer a broad range of tests that have the potential to uncover early cancers and markers of disease. Following a review of your results, an individualized plan for health will be provided.
