Winchester Medical Center and Virginia Commonwealth University provide a genetic counseling service to help people determine their cancer risk. Counseling is available for individuals who have been identified by their physician as meeting screening guidelines and are then referred via a written order.
Appointments with a genetic counselor (via telemedicine) are scheduled in Winchester Medical Center's Radiation Therapy Department. The genetic counseling service is provided at no charge to the patient. The referring physician receives written follow-up.
To refer a patient for genetic counseling, call 855-984-4673.
