Long-term and follow-up care:

Patients with these conditions often need follow-up and management.  We offer close monitoring, medical management and surgical intervention if necessary to treat these conditions. Because these disorders are typically genetic, our team includes a certified genetic counselor to help families understand the diagnosis, treatment options and risk of other family members having the same condition.

Team Members

The team is led by Denver Sallee, III, M.D., Glen Iannucci, M.D., Leslie Bishop, M.S.N., C.P.N.P., R.N.Erin Demo, M.S., C.G.C., and Linda Knight, M.S., C.G.C.
