Since cancer is common, you probably have at least one relative who has experienced cancer at some point in his or her life.

As many as 10% of those diagnosed with some forms of cancer have an “inherited” cancer, which means it was genetically passed down from parents to children. When we know that someone is at risk for an inherited cancer, we can potentially prevent it from happening.

Our genetics physicians are the only doctors in Arkansas specializing in the diagnosis and management of cancer syndromes (the genetic predisposition to develop cancer). Cancer genetics specialists may include genetic counselors and advanced practice nurses with special training in cancer genetics.

 Appointments

For new patients, please call 501-296-1200. For returning patients, call 501-686-5655.

We will talk with you about your needs and may request further information be sent to us from your other physicians.

Although UAMS does not require a physician referral, some insurance providers require a referral for specialty care. Please check with your insurance provider before requesting an appointment.

 What should I bring to the appointment?

For your first appointment, please bring a photo ID and your insurance card along with a list of any medications you’re taking, including over-the-counter medications. You should also bring any medical records you can provide, including slides or test results from other clinics.

For future appointments, please provide updated medical and insurance information.

How do I request a prescription refill or contact a nurse from the clinic?

Call the clinic at 501-686-5655, or you can request prescription refills during your appointment. If you originally filled your prescription at the UAMS Outpatient Pharmacy, you can also refill your prescription online.

Children at the Cancer Institute

Our patients and your children are at high risk for infection. If your child is showing signs of illness, he or she should remain in the lobby or The Gathering Place Café on the first floor with adult supervision.
