The genetic counseling company with the nation’s largest, most experienced, full-time genetic counselor staff.
Nationwide access to expertise across all genetic counseling specialties – without the conflicting interests of lab-sponsored counseling. Our approach differentiates us from other genetic counseling companies.
Your health system may need genetic counselor services to augment your on-site resources, improve patient experience, and reduce costs.
Increasingly, genetic testing is requested by patients and ordered by physicians, but it’s important that the patient have an advocate that will help them navigate through the whole process. Working directly with a genetic specialist will clarify the pros/cons of moving forward with genetic testing options. To meet this demand, you may be scanning for appropriate genetic counseling companies that can contract with you or augment your staff of healthcare professionals. Moreover, our genetic experts will cover all the necessary criteria during a genetic counseling session, including:
- Make sure the patient meets national guidelines for testing
- Ensure the appropriate test is covered by his/her health plan
- Gather necessary details about the family health history
- Discuss additional or alternate testing options
With more than 12 years’ experience and nearly 100 board-certified genetic counselors, InformedDNA offers convenient access to the largest, most experienced, lab-independent genetic counseling staff in the country.
