Clinical Services

Genetic Support Foundation has a team of experienced certified genetic counselors that can provide genetic counseling services for a number of different indications, including:

  • Preconception counseling for individuals who are concerned about their chance to have a baby with a genetic condition or birth defect, or who would like to gather more information about genetic tests that are available.
  • Prenatal counseling for people who are considered genetic testing during their pregnancy, or individuals who have already had genetic testing and would like to discuss the results.
  • Pediatric and adult counseling for individuals and families that have questions about genetic test results, or that could use support while awaiting a formal evaluation by a medical geneticist.
  • Cancer counseling for individuals who have a personal and/or family history of cancer, have questions about genetic testing for hereditary cancer predisposition, or have had cancer genetic testing but would like to review the results with a specialist.

We also are available to contract with other healthcare offices to provide remote genetic counseling services. If you are a healthcare provider or administrator and are interested in getting more information about partnering with Genetic Support Foundation to meet your genetic counseling needs, please contact us.


Best Practices

Genetic Support Foundation can work with your organization to uphold best practices with regard to genetics, including ensuring that testing that is ordered is appropriate. There are many genetic tests currently available on the market, and given this growing catalog it can be challenging to determine which test is the right test to order. GSF can provide case reviews for genetic testing requests to ensure that the right test is done for the right patient at the right time. This will allow your practice to provide advanced genetic services more accurately, economically, and appropriately. If you are a healthcare provider or administrator and are interested in getting more information about partnering with GSF to implement best genetic practices, please contact us.


Consulting

Genetic Support Foundation has had the opportunity to provide services in a number of different specialties in a wide variety of clinical settings. Through this work, we have developed tools that can be helpful to improve the delivery of genetic counseling services. GSF can help you improve the quality of care you deliver to your patients with comprehensive, evidence-based, and efficient solutions. If you are a healthcare provider or administrator and are interested in getting more information about GSF’s consulting services, please contact us.

The field of genetics is very complex and constantly evolving, and it can be overwhelming trying to find good resources.
