Undergoing Genetic Testing
Patients often find that genetic testing can open a whole new world of information and understanding. While this knowledge can provide valuable insights into the cause or risk of disease, it can sometimes be emotionally challenging or difficult to understand.
Sonic Genetics puts particular emphasis on the pre- and post-testing consultation service between referring doctors and our genetic specialists. This approach provides doctors with a clear understanding of possible outcomes of a test so they can advise patients and their families appropriately.
Although Sonic Genetics only accepts referrals from doctors, we place a strong emphasis on ensuring that patients also understand what we are doing, and how this will help them and their doctor. We provide comprehensive information about each test and disorder, including clear information about costs and turnaround times. The test information can also help relatives understand what tests have been done – and why.
