Healthcare professionals are fundamental to interpreting genetic information. We encourage you to discuss your results with your healthcare provider.
In addition, consultation with a genetics expert is available to patients who undergo hereditary cancer, cardiology, ophthalmology, reproductive health, or proactive health testing at Invitae. Our experienced, board-certified genetic counselors are available by telephone to answer your questions about genetic testing and genetic test results. You also have the option to schedule a more comprehensive post-test genetic counseling session specific to your own medical and family histories, if desired. If you received your testing through Invitae, there is no additional charge for any of these services. Learn more by visiting our Genetic counseling services page.
