What is genetic counseling?

What is genetic counseling?

A genetic counselor is a healthcare professional with special training in medical genetics and counseling. They look at your family health history, provide risk assessment, give recommendations related to genetic testing, explain the implications of test results for different family members, and support you in the decisions you make.

If you have a personal or family history of cancer or any other hereditary disease, a genetic counselor can help you understand your risks as well as how DNA testing may or may not be helpful for you. If you have already had genetic testing done, a genetic counselor can assist you in interpreting your results within the context of your personal and family health history. 

We want to work with you.

Whether you are part of an NAPBC-accredited breast center, own a small private practice and handle all genetic testing on your own, or are brand new to family history screening and genetic testing, we can offer a customized plan catered to your needs and goals.

If you are a researcher needing genetic counseling for patients within the context of a study or part of a health IT company and wanting to make sure that you take clinical genetics and genomics into account—we can help with that too!
