During a Results Review appointment, we first briefly review your personal and family history as it pertains to prenatal genetic testing. This may be abbreviated due to the emotional nature of some appointments.
Next, we will review biology and basic genetics to ensure you have a solid foundation as we move into discussing your genetic test results.
Then, we will discuss in detail the test that was performed, exactly what the results mean, and if any additional testing is needed for confirmation or clarification.
We can discuss the prognosis for a person with the condition of concern and connect you with support groups or other families who have experienced this condition. Sometimes this information changes a person’s thoughts on parenting and couples are faced with tough decisions.

What Our Patients Have To Say

A Word From Those We Have Helped Along The Way

“My husband and I knew we were at risk for passing on a fatal inheritable disease, and appreciated Erin’s expertise and guidance in the prenatal testing process. While Erin has a solid understanding of the science behind genetics, her ability to explain that science in a sensitive, meaningful way helped our family feel comfortable and confident making informed decisions.” - Jenni

“Erin called us a few hours after we found out about the diagnosis. We were confused and upset and getting to talk to an actual person right away was incredibly comforting. She was with us through the entire journey as we learned more about the diagnosis and became a support we could count on always. We will never forget her. She was wonderful. I’m so glad that she was there to help guide us.” - Sarah
