About

I see clinic patients in the UNC High-Risk Gastrointestinal Cancer Clinic where we provide risk assessment, genetic counseling services, genetic testing, individualized screening and treatment protocols incorporating the latest evidence-based practices. We provide patients with a family history of GI cancer or a personal history of polyps with the information they need to make informed choices, assess risks and plan their futures. The high-risk clinic provides collaborative care delivered by a multi-disciplinary team. We understand that every person’s situation is unique. Our goal is to empower patients and families with the information they need in a compassionate setting,
