The Wellstar Genetic Risk Assessment Program serves people with hereditary risk factors or a family history of cancer and heart problems as well as couples and expecting mothers with prenatal or preconception concerns.
Medical Genetics at Wellstar
Medical geneticists meet with couples who are trying to conceive and are interested in how their family histories of disorders and congenital disabilities may impact their children. These specialists also evaluate and counsel pregnant women who have abnormal test results.
Genetics plays a role in many diseases, and many patients can benefit from genetic testing, ranging from those with cancer and cardiac conditions to disabilities and other disorders.
These highly-trained doctors identify hereditary disorders, then counsel patients on treatment options and therapeutic outcomes. With our team, patients have a knowledgeable and compassionate specialist to guide them through treatment.
Wellstar’s Genetic Risk Assessment Program can help you determine if you may develop or carry certain genetic disorders.
Appointments with a genetic counselor do not typically require a referral.
