Genetic Testing and Genetic Counseling

We offer genetic counseling, genetic testing and screening for patients and their families.

Genetic Discrimination: Individuals considering genetic testing often have concerns about how their test results may affect their current or future insurability. GINA, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act, went into effect in 2009. This federal law prohibits health insurance and employment discrimination base on genetic information. For more information, visit the Genetic Alliance. GINA does not apply to other types of insurance such as life, or long-term disability insurance. In addition to GINA, the state of California has laws prohibiting genetic discrimination. For more information, visit the NCSL.
