Hematologic cancer clinical trials

Take advantage of blood cancer clinical trials at ProHealth. If you’re a candidate, you may benefit from new treatments not widely available.

Genetic testing for blood disease

Some people have a higher risk of developing certain blood diseases because they carry an inherited gene mutation. Ask your doctor if you or your family may benefit from genetic testing and counseling at ProHealth. Early detection of conditions like multiple myeloma may help you live longer and have a better quality of life.
