The introduction of screening for multiple high and moderate risk mutations in genes has resulted in a complex approach to patient care involving multiple disciplines. We sought to describe the feasibility of a single visit multidisciplinary approach to the management of patients with an identified high/moderate risk gene mutation. Patients who presented to our community hospital over a 1-year period who were found to have a high/moderate risk genetic mutation on a screening panel were referred to the High Risk Genetic Clinic. Thirty-five patients were included. The majority were female [34 (97.1%)], Hispanic [22 (62.9%)], with a family history of cancer [21 (60%)]. Mean age was 40.3 years. Most of the participants had a BRCA1 gene mutation [10 (28.6%)]. Patients were seen at the High Risk Genetic Clinic within a mean of 41.9 days from the day of genetic mutation diagnosis. Four patients did not show and were significantly younger (19.3 vs. 39.6 years, p = 0.014). In this community setting, we provided coordinated care within multiple disciplines related to a genetic mutation in a single clinic visit. Increased efforts at coordinating early care should be directed towards patients diagnosed at a younger age.
