1. Why seek Genetic Counseling?
Patients seek genetic counseling for a many reasons. Often, it's because they may have a chromosome-related disorder and they need specialized medical consultation from a physician board certified Geneticist. Chromosomes are the building blocks that determine how people develop, grow, and respond to disease and age. When a person has too many chromosomes, or they are damaged or in the wrong order, health, behavior and cognitive problems can result. Some of the major reasons for genetic counseling include:
- Developmental delays in children
- Birth defects
- Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Abnormal chromosomes

- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Hereditary conditions
- Family history of cancer
