Cancer screening is, as the name implies, the process of checking the body for cancer before symptoms emerge. Cancer is easiest to treat, and survival rates are highest, when it is detected early. The CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends that all patients receive regular cancer screening tests, although the specifics may vary by age, gender, and risk factors.

Dr. Zislis also believes strongly in patient education. He will assess your risk factors, help you make lifestyle changes to lower your risks of developing cancer, and ensure that you understand how best to protect yourself and your loved ones.
If any abnormal tissue or cancer is detected, Dr. Zislis will work hand in hand with you to develop a personalized treatment plan designed to aggressively combat the problem while reducing side effects of treatment. If you need to see an oncologist or other specialist, we will provide a referral and work in tandem with that physician to ensure that you receive top notch, coordinated care.
