You may have seen recent news about advances in early cancer detection. We're excited to share that we now offer a revolutionary multi-cancer early detection test for our patients.

It’s called the Galleri Multi-Cancer Early-Detection Test* and it can detect more than 50 types of cancer by looking for signals in the blood that may be associated with cancer.1,2 If caught in its early stages, cancer treatment outcomes and survival rates may be improved.

Here are few benefits of the test:

  • It detects many cancers that are not commonly screened for today, so you can get treated earlier.

  • It can be incorporated into a routine visit through a simple blood draw.

  • If a cancer signal is found, the results point to where in the body the cancer is coming from to help us guide your next steps.

You can learn more about the test by watching a short explainer video below.
