Adult Genetics

Genetics play an important role in many adult diseases and conditions. To help determine your risks and guide you to better health, Saint Francis Genetics offers genetic counseling services.

Your Genetic Risks

Adults with a known genetic condition, or those with an increased chance of inheriting an adult-onset genetic condition, may benefit from an evaluation with one of our genetic specialists.

Indications for genetic counseling include:

  • Personal or family history of an inherited hypercoagulability risk factor such as Factor V Leiden or Prothrombin
  • Personal or family history of a genetic condition such as hereditary hemochromatosis or polycystic kidney disease
  • Personal or family history of a hereditary cancer syndrome such as breast and ovarian cancer syndrome or Lynch syndrome

Your Genetics Consultation

A physical examination and genetic evaluation should be considered if you have a strong family history of an unknown condition. Your individual circumstances will determine whether predictive, pre-symptomatic or diagnostic tests may be necessary to identify the cause of an underlying condition. Genetic testing, if available and indicated, may be ordered. During your evaluation, we'll also discuss options for disease management or treatment.
