Genetics Consultations and Counseling for Patients and Families

An appointment with a geneticist and genetic counselor is an important part of whole exome sequencing (WES).  It is highly recommended that patients meet with a geneticist and genetic counselor before and after having WES.  

Cincinnati Children’s has a Genomic Evaluation Clinic available to patients having WES. A referral from a doctor is required to schedule an appointment in the clinic.  

Patients outside of the Cincinnati Children’s area can find a geneticist or genetic counselor online:

Make an Appointment

Patients at Cincinnati Children’s with a physician referral may schedule an appointment for genetic evaluation and counseling by calling the Division of Human Genetics at 513-636-4760. Ask to speak with the Genomic Medicine Clinic coordinator.
