- Initial Evaluation
Genetic evaluations take place virtually.
Prior to initial evaluation from AT-GC, you may be responsible for gathering personal and family genetic health history. The provider will utilize the health information you provide, along with any relevant clinical documentation shared by you or your doctor, to determine whether a particular genetic test may or may not be appropriate. In some instances, your doctor may have already ordered a genetic test for you.
- Results Evaluation
When AT-GC receives genetic test results, we will contact you to let you know that the results of the genetic test are available, and will provide information that will allow you to schedule a genetic counseling appointment to discuss your results, should you choose to do so. Your genetic counselor will interpret and discuss the meaning of your specific results and will provide personalized information and recommendations related to your risk, and also will explain what these findings may mean for family members. We will happily provide a summary of our conversations, recommendations, and the genetic testing results to your provider so that you can follow up regarding the information provided by your genetic test. We will be available to you following the genetic testing. You may contact us with any questions related to your genetics results. We are also happy to discuss coordinating testing for family members who may also wish to pursue genetic counseling and testing.
*Test processing can take one to six weeks.
