Genetic testing and counseling are available for patients who have a family history of gastrointestinal cancers. The Sandra Rosenberg Registry for Hereditary and Familial Colon Cancer provides care for patients at risk for inherited colon cancer and conducts research to further the understanding and management of the disease.
Patients can receive care through the Coleman Foundation Comprehensive Clinic for Gastrointestinal Cancers, which brings together a team of doctors with specialized expertise in gastrointestinal cancers. New and second opinion patients meet with the team in a single visit to discuss diagnosis and treatment options. At the end of this meeting, patients walk away with a well-defined treatment plan designed to meet their specific needs.
