Genetic Counseling (Genetic Counselor)
About Genetic Counseling
Genetic counseling is the professional interaction between a healthcare provider with specialized knowledge of genetics and an individual or family.
Genetic counselors also offer and interpret genetic tests that may help to estimate risk of disease. The genetic counselor conveys information in an effort to address concerns of the client and provides psychological counseling to help families adapt to their condition or risk.
