Here, when it matters most
GeneDx offers unsurpassed access to certified genetic counselors and geneticists.
Customer service genetic counselors
Our dedicated customer service genetic counselors serve as the liaison between the healthcare provider, their staff and our laboratory. Well-versed in our extensive testing menu, they provide support by assisting with up front test selection appropriate for the patient’s suspected condition. The customer service genetic counseling team is responsible for test utilization management. The team reviews all test requisitions received at the GeneDx laboratory to eliminate redundant or unnecessary testing. Additionally, this team manages pending cases to ensure that GeneDx meets expected turnaround times and customer request response rates.
Laboratory genetic counselors and geneticists
GeneDx’s laboratory genetic counselors work with PhD-level analysts, clinical molecular geneticists and clinical cytogeneticists to classify variants and prepare the written report. The report includes an explanation of the laboratory findings, a detailed summary of the evidence used to support the variant classification, and a customized clinical interpretation. This team is particularly well-equipped to handle clinical and technical questions that healthcare providers may have prior to or after the release of test results.
