Hi everyone, has anyone seen a genetic counselor before? My primary dr suggested it wondering if anyone has feedback? Will they do testing to help see if I have a genetic condition? Any feedback is appreciated so much!

      If your insurance does not cover it (many don’t) it can be very expensive

      I see a medical genetics doctor and a genetics counselor. They see patients together. I did my first round of testing 6 months ago and am waiting for my next collection kit (it’s a cheek swab) to arrive in the mail so I can do my expanded testing. We are sequencing my entire genome because nothing showed up on my first tests and we can’t rule anything out by my medical history because I don’t know anything about my maternal family medical history.

      No but I do hope to have some genetic testing done soon. I hope it helps you!
