Enter The Future: Genetic Testing/Counseling
While we argue about insurance and payments, medical science continues to advance into the future.
Genetic testing is now available to patients in the Rogue Valley, through a partnership between Oregon Health & Science University and Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center.
The testing helps doctors determine if cancer is a possibility, based on a patient's genetic makeup. And the program also includes counseling on options available to patients whose genetic information does indicate cancer risks.
