Genetics and Your Practice
Genetic medicine can aid in the management of thousands of conditions. By evaluating your patient’s family history to identify specific health risks and referring patients to a genetic professional when appropriate, you can co-manage care with a specialist. This helps to proactively adapt the patient and family’s lifestyle and medical management to address risks.
Referring a patient
Your patient should be referred to a genetic specialist when there are reproductive issues, delayed growth and/or delayed development, or a personal or family history of an inherited disorder, birth defect or disability. Carrier screening and predisposition screening may also warrant a referral.
