Most of our new patients will spend time with a genetic counselor during their initial appointment. The genetic counselor will review and discuss your family history to determine any possible increased risk of having a child with a genetic condition or birth defect. They may point out areas of concern for future testing options.
In addition, couples may meet with a genetic counselor if they have experienced:
- Repeat miscarriages
- The decrease or absence of sperm in semen
- Premature ovarian failure
We also recommend genetic counseling for any couple undergoing IVF treatments. We encourage ALL patients to see genetic counselor.
