Customized screening for high risk patients

The Pezim clinic physician will recommend a screening method and frequency that matches our risk profile.  The range is quite wide, anywhere from every 6 months to every 10 years.  A number of factors need to be considered, including your family history, what test you have had so far and the results, who did them and where they were done, your age, related medical issues and your general health status.  We are experts at understanding the cancer risk of patients who have high risk colorectal cancer genetic syndromes such as Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP) and Lynch Syndrome (Cancer Family Syndrome), or those who may simply have a single distant relative with the disease. You get a customized program based on your own personal risk status.
