This physician is not currently rated. Why?

Why is this doctor not rated?


To ensure the accuracy of our patient satisfaction scores, we require that providers who see patients receive a minimum number of completed patient-submitted surveys before their reviews are listed on their profiles. Star ratings on this site are collected on a rolling basis from the previous 12 months.
Additionally, some of the physicians listed on our site do not see patients directly, and therefore, do not receive evaluation and ratings from patients.

Licensed Certified Genetic Counselor

Treatment Philosophy

During the genetic counseling process, patients consider the implications that genetics may hold for themselves and for their families regarding cancer risk. It is an honor to get to create a space where patients and families in the Risk Assessment Program can share their thoughts and experiences, and where I not only provide them with important health information but also accompany them through their decision-making. My goal is to empower patients by clarifying risks to themselves and to their family members, helping them understand their options for managing these risks, and providing thoughtful, compassionate care and support throughout our time together.
