I am a Medical Geneticist that sees both adults and children with any type of cancer predisposition syndromes. I have interests in diagnosing all cancer predisposition syndromes, testing family members with known mutations, testing individuals with multiple cancers in their families with unknown mutations, establishing a diagnosis, and tailoring a particular plan for cancer screening and surveillance for individuals at higher risk to develop different types of cancers.
