Sonic Genetics understands that genetic testing is a complex and emerging field of medicine, and provides detailed explanations and resources to support clinicians and their patients in making informed choices about medical decisions.
Genetic counselling may be an important step to consider before a patient agrees to undergo genetic testing. Genetic counselling may help to clarify the questions being asked of the test, the selection of the appropriate test, the possible results from the test, and the implications of the test result for the patient and relatives.
Sonic Genetics maintains a list of public and private genetic counselling services nationally. We also provide free genetic counselling in a number of specific situations for patients or couples who have been tested, or are planning to be tested, by Sonic Genetics.
