I am a surgical oncologist, clinical geneticist and researcher who treats patients with breast cancer, melanoma and strong family histories of cancer. As a surgeon, I specialize in treating high-risk breast cancer patients and in assessing cutaneous, subcutaneous and nodal masses, and performing appropriate resections. As a geneticist, I advise patients on risk assessments based on family history, options for genetic testing and preventive screening, and treatments. My research focuses on all aspects of surgical oncology and cancer genetics, in particular breast tumors associated with the inheritable BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, two of the most prominent genes associated with breast cancer risk. I was rated in the top 10 percent of physicians in the nation for patient satisfaction in 2016 and 2017.

In addition to my clinical work, I am committed to educating the next generation of oncologists. I teach and mentor young physicians, plan extension and continuing education programs, and train students in genetic counseling. I have published my work extensively in terms of both research and teaching. My writing has been published as book chapters, curriculum, reports and much more.

I also serve as a member of the Committee on Applicants for the American College of Surgeons (Ohio District #3).

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the university requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their university responsibilities. As of 3/28/2017, Dr. Agnese has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
