Our team of genetic counselors can see patients for many indications, such as questions about preconception or prenatal testing options, hereditary cancer risk, hereditary cardiovascular risk, and direct-to-consumer test (ie 23andMe) results, among others.
To refer your patient, please fax relevant medical records and insurance information to 844.813.3892. We’ll then contact the patient to schedule an appointment. We’ll send you a thorough note documenting the visit. If genetic testing is recommended, we’ll work with your office to ensure that the most appropriate testing is being ordered. Once the results are back, we’ll set a patient appointment to review those results, and your office will get a results summary as well as next recommended steps. Questions? Call us at 844.743.6384.
We partner with many clinics and hospitals to provide independent genetic counseling services, primarily through telehealth. We are able to cover full-time and part-time volumes, as well as long- and short-term needs. Please contact us for more information.
We’ve had the opportunity to provide services in a wide variety of clinical settings. Through this work, we’ve developed tools that can be helpful to improve the delivery of genetic counseling services. If you are a healthcare provider or administrator interested in our consulting service, please contact us.
We have created a set of tools to help you easily and efficiently stay up to-date with the newest developments in genetic testing so that you can spend more of your time on what is important: your patients.
The Washington State Department of Health, in partnership with GSF, has produced a series of seven educational videos regarding prenatal genetic testing. These videos and their accompanying handouts are currently available in both Spanish and English
GSF periodically prepares summaries of professional guidelines and policy statements on a variety of timely genetic issues. This compilation can save you time and resources and help you quickly find the answers you are looking for.
GSF provides a collection of useful links to calculators to help you navigate statistics relating to genetics and inherited conditions. We currently feature a calculator that allows you to estimate the Positive Predictive Value (PPV) and Negative Predictive Value (NPV) of cell-free DNA (cfDNA).
“This is such an exciting time in “personalized medicine” – there is a vast amount of genetic information potentially available to each of us. You want objective experts to partner with throughout the process. Genetic Support Foundation, an independent nonprofit organization, is a trusted leader in the field offering objective and up-to-date genetic services.”
