Where to find genetic testing

Local medical centers provide services in the areas of prenatal, pediatric, and cancer genetics. For prenatal and cancer genetic services, board-certified genetic counselors are on staff and they consult with patients, arrange testing, provide counseling, discuss options, and make recommendations. Hospitals with pediatric genetic services typically also employ pediatricians/geneticists who examine, diagnose, recommend testing, and treat youngsters.
