Most patients who pursue genetic testing will find reassurance, direction and empowerment in the information that genetic testing provides.

In families with known genetic mutations, those relatives who have not inherited the mutation may be spared the anxiety, the increased surveillance and other measures that are necessary for those at higher risk.

Welcome to Genetic Counseling Services

Genetic Counseling Services offers a personalized discussion with an experienced Board Certified Genetic Counselor.  Together we will review your family history and help you collect the information you need to understand your genetic risk and the role of genetic testing in your health care.    

With the assistance of Genetic Counseling Services, you and your physician will have the tools to seek the most appropriate genetic tests, referrals to specialists, genetic testing laboratories  and professional society-guided recommendations.   Whether you have decided to pursue genetic testing through your family doctor or specialist, through an online testing company, or not to pursue testing at all, Genetic Counseling Services has something to offer you.

After selecting any of our services,  you will receive a link to some forms which can be submitted online.  Once we receive the completed forms, we will contact you to schedule your appointment with Genetic Counseling Services.

Genetic risk information and testing eligibility is based on accurate family history, supporting medical  records, consensus driven recommendations and variable insurance policy interpretation.  Our extensive experience in helping patients with your very questions makes us experts in collecting the most pertinent medical information, statistics, literature and expert opinion for efficient, cost-effective and sensible decision making in genetic testing.    We will work with you and your doctors in obtaining insurance authorization and informed consent - through private and convenient telephone consultation and correspondence, with options for office consultation.  

 We are uniquely not affiliated with any genetic testing laboratory.  Therefore you can be assured that there is no promotion of any particular genetic testing.

 Let’s talk.  With a little help from your past, you could change your future.
