Talk to an Expert: Genetic Consultation

If you are considering a genetic test or have already had a genetic test, you may benefit from a clinical consultation with a board-certified genetic expert.

What Can I Expect During a Genetic Consultation?

Our board-certified genetic consultants are trained healthcare professionals who will:

  • Discuss the genetic test(s) you are interested in learning about
  • Complete a risk assessment by reviewing your personal and family medical history
  • Provide important information about inheritance, testing management, prevention, resources and research
  • Identify whether you are appropriate for genetic testing based on current medical guidelines
  • Help answer your specific questions about the test(s)
  • Help you consider what you would do based on genetic test results
  • Offer clinical interpretation and support if you have testing

Most medical questions are answered in about 30 minutes, but the counselor will speak with you as long as you need.

Genetic experts are available for consults Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM Pacific Time. To schedule a consultation, please call us at .
