Healthcare professionals are fundamental to interpreting genetic information. We encourage you to discuss your results with your healthcare provider.
In addition, consultation with a genetic counselor is available to patients who undergo hereditary cancer testing at Invitae. Our experienced, board-certified genetic counselors are available by telephone to answer patients’ questions about genetic testing and genetic test results. Patients also have the option to schedule a more comprehensive post-test genetic counseling session specific to their own medical and family histories, if desired. There is no additional charge for patients to access any of these services. Learn more by visiting our Genetic counseling services page.
