Genetic counselors are healthcare professionals trained to educate, support, and facilitate genetic testing for families at genetic risk for disease. Genetic counselors work with families to identify members who are at risk of genetic predisposition to disease and order genetic testing when appropriate. In a genetic counseling session, a thorough personal and family history will be collected and assessed in order to determine appropriate genetic testing and medical management recommendations for you and your family.
