I was there for genetic testing suggested by my PCP because my sister had colon cancer and her doctors said she had Lynch Syndrome which is hereditary. unfortunately, the testing could not be completed until further information is received from my sister's doctors. I will send her the medical release form so this information can be evaluated as to what testing would be needed. Dr. Brand and his staff were very thorough in explaining the genetic testing that may be needed.
