We recognize the importance of using genetic counseling services to promote informed decisions about health, cancer screening, and genetic conditions.
At Centura Health, we’re dedicated to enhancing your understanding of your health through our advanced genetic counseling and testing services. Our team recognizes the importance of giving you a clear picture of your risks for cancer and other genetic conditions. We’ll work with you every step of the way to understand what your results mean for you and your family.
Genetic counseling is the first step in the genetic testing process. At your appointment, you and your genetic counselor will use your family history and genetic information to estimate your risks for certain diseases and the risk of an inherited cancer in your family, discuss ways to screen for and prevent cancer or other genetic disease based on your risks, review the pros and cons of genetic lab testing, and decide if genetic testing is right for you based on your particular risks and concerns.
If you would like to be seen at the Genetic Counseling Clinic, please ask your physician for a referral.
