Clinical Genetics Services
Clinical genetics plays an increasingly large role in health care. Mount Sinai has a long legacy of researching and providing patient care in genetics and genomics. We provide a range of clinical genetics services for patients. If you have—or suspect you might have—a genetic disease, birth defect, reproductive issue, or cancer risk, we can help. If you do not have one of these conditions but want to better understand your genomic risk, we can also help you learn more. We have expertise in screening, diagnosing, and treating patients of all ages.
Our clinical genetic counselors provide a safe, comfortable environment to discuss your concerns. They can help you decide whether to do genetic testing. The testing process involves sending a blood sample to a laboratory for analysis. We can also help you address the emotional, psychological, and social consequences of the test results. As always, we respect your privacy.
