ASSESSMENT AND PLAN:  This is a (XX)-year-old Hispanic male in good health.  However, the patient has hypercholesterolemia, not improved with diet control and exercise.  We discussed management and also discussed trying another statin.

Regarding the patient’s strong family history of breast cancer, we discussed management and recommended gene screen for the family members.  We will continue annual breast exam.  The patient is instructed to call if he notices any breast lump.  Regarding his family history of colon cancer, at this visit, he has negative stool guaiac.  We will continue annual rectal exam.  We will go ahead and obtain colonoscopy for colon cancer screen.

Regarding his general fatigue, unclear etiology.  We will check his TSH to rule out any possible steroid dysfunction.  We will encourage the patient to abstain from smoking, limit alcohol intake.  Also encouraged he avoid sun overexposure, use sunscreen at least 30 SPF.  The patient will follow up p.r.n.
