Considering Genetic Testing for Hereditary Cancer Risk?

Alternatively, you can schedule a genetic consultation with Ambry Genetics’ partner Genome Medical, a nationwide specialty medical practice that focuses on providing expert genetic counseling for patients who may be at risk for common hereditary cancers.

The Genome Medical team of genetic experts and primary care MDs will work with patients to determine whether genetic testing is right for them, and which Ambry test might be appropriate to order.
