About Genetic Counseling
The genetic counseling services at Ascension provide personalized information, support and resources for people at risk for hereditary conditions. Genetic counselors are professionals with advanced medical degrees and counseling certifications. This means they can expertly break down complex medical language, as well as address anxieties you may feel regarding the health of you and your family members.
During your first consultation, a genetic counselor will examine your family's medical history, including both physical and emotional elements of your health heritage. Then they can equip you with the information you need to make informed, proactive decisions for you and your family.
At Ascension, we believe the clear, reliable communication of medical information is as important as the information itself. We invite you to make an appointment with a genetic counselor and gain confidence in your health knowledge.
