At Schell Genetics, we offer individualised evaluations, genetic consultation, and testing. Our clinical services include reproductive and prenatal counseling, carrier testing, and complete genetic evaluations for children and adults.
Our goal is to provide you with genetic information that presents choices and minimises uncertainty, empowering you to make decisions that are most beneficial for you. Although we offer specific recommendations about your medical care, we encourage you to make reproductive and other choices that are appropriate for you based on your cultural background and personal experience.
Genetic consultation provides information for decisions on genetic testing
An online genetic consultation aims to assist patients in making informed choices concerning the disease in question, their health, or their child’s health, respectively. To what extent genetic consultations and diagnostics may be helpful depends on the particular disorder and the patients’ personal specific questions. Both will define the topics in the consultation and the kind of genetic testing proposed. In the event of information being obtained during the consultation pointing to additional genetic issues the patients haven’t been aware of yet, we will discuss their options. It remains the patients’ personal decision if and to which extend to proceed with a possible genetic diagnostic strategy.
We offer online genetic consultation services mainly for issues related to:
- Paediatric Genetics (childhood genetic disorders and syndromes)
- Oncogenetics (cancer genetics)
- Reproductive Genetics
- Any Other Issues
Of course, we are happy to assist patients with all questions they might have on any other genetic issues.
The online genetic consultation services include an initial video session with a consultant clinical geneticist as well as follow-up sessions on a case to case basis if needed, followed by a comprehensive Medical Genetics Report containing the most important topics of the consultation and the relevant findings, including all lab results.
