Genetic Counseling Support Services

In Asia Genomics, we appreciate the importance of genetic counseling as an important component of genetic testing and genetic services. Therefore, we have established genetic counseling support for physicians and a genetic counseling clinic for patients.

Genetic Counseling Physician Support

  • Direct support to physicians interested in ordering testing through Asia Genomics.
  • Genetic resources to facilitate genetic counseling on our test panels.
  • Genetic Counselors are available to attend to enquiries by physicians about genetic testing and results.

You may also contact us at counseling@asia-genomics.com for further inquiries related to genetic counseling services.
