Outpatient Visitor Guidelines
Due to an increase in COVID-19 patients in Arkansas and across the country, UAMS is implementing new visiting policies for our clinics. Effective March 20, 2020, patients must come to their visit alone, unless there are special needs such as:
- Patients undergoing a procedure that requires a driver
- Minor patients
- Patients in a wheelchair who need assistance
Visitors must be 18 or older and pass a health screening before entering a UAMS building.
About Cancer Genetics Clinic
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.
