Genome Medical’s national network of genetic experts includes both medical geneticists and genetic counselors. Your consultation will most likely be with a genetic counselor, who is a medical provider specially trained to understand the complexities of genetic tests and how to interpret an individual’s unique results. In certain cases, you may also work with a medical geneticist, a physician trained in general medicine, genetic diagnosis and the treatment of patients with genetic disorders. Genetic counselors start by learning what important health questions you have, assessing your risk for disorders of interest and then reviewing how genetic testing may help you answer them. Their recommendations are tailored to address the issues that are most important to you. If you have questions about your results, genetic counselors are there to explain what it means and work with you to understand best next steps and develop a care plan.
