CTGT does not provide consultation or genetic counseling services. If you are a patient interested in genetic testing, this is a decision best made between you and your doctor or genetic counselor. If you are unable to find a genetic counselor, the Find a Genetic Counselor tool provided by NSGC can help you locate a genetic counselor who offers services in your area, or via telehealth.
Any physician can order genetic testing including geneticists, cardiologists, OBGYNs, primary care providers, etc. However, your physician may not feel comfortable ordering genetic testing and may refer you to a specialized genetics doctor or genetic counselor who can help determine if you are a candidate for genetic testing.
All tests must be ordered by a physician and all results will be sent to the ordering physician. CTGT does not provide Direct-to-Consumer testing.
CTGT does not provide medical advice to patients. While we are always happy to explain our testing process, the best person to help you choose the right test for you is your doctor or genetic counselor.
