What’s included in an appointment?

In your post-test genetic counseling session, your genetic counselor will:

  • Ask you questions about your personal and family health history
  • Review your genetic test results with you to explain what they mean for you and your family
  • Answer any questions you may have about your results or what to do next

As you prepare for your session, we recommend you set aside one hour free from interruptions or distractions. You may consider asking your family members about your family medical history ahead of your appointment. It is helpful for your genetic counselor to understand if any family members have been diagnosed with medical conditions and at what age they were diagnosed. This information gives us signals into conditions that could be hereditary.
