Michael Schmidt, M.D.
Dr. Schmidt is a board certified Medical Geneticist. He assists the Surgeons and Staff with evaluations and testing for Hereditary Cancer Syndromes. All cancer is genetic, but about 10% of all cancers are due to genes inherited from a parent. Knowing this risk can help a patient and their Physician to choose the best management for their type of cancer as well as preventing similar types of cancer occurring in their family members.
