A little preparation before your appointment can help you get the most out of your genetic counseling visit.
- Ask your relatives about medical conditions in the family
- Gather any medical records related to your concerns
- Bring a list of written questions to your appointment
- You may not be able to get all the details, but the more information you have, the more your genetic counselor can help.
