Want to Know Your Cancer Risk? OLOL Genetic Services Can Help
Genetic testing can provide a sense of relief from uncertainty and help you make informed decisions about managing your healthcare. For example, in some cases a negative result can eliminate the need for unnecessary checkups and screening tests. A positive result can direct a person toward available prevention, monitoring and treatment options. Duane W. Superneau, MD, has joined Our Lady of the Lake Genetic Services.
Dr. Superneau is Board Certified in pediatrics and in clinical genetics and is a graduate of the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle. He completed his internship and residency in pediatrics at Charity Hospital in New Orleans and completed a fellowship in medical genetics at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine Department of Medical Genetics in Mobile. His career in medical genetics spans thirty years.
