Frequently Asked Questions

Once You Have Made Your Appointment

What to bring to your genetic counseling appointment

Your referring physician may have already performed some of the tests that will be discussed. Please check with your obstetrician’s office prior to your appointment and ask that they fax us your relevant records. These may include tests such as:

Maternal serum screening results from your current pregnancy:

  • First trimester screening (the nuchal translucency test)
  • Second trimester screening (the triple screen or quad screen)
  • Genetic carrier testing records:
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Fragile X
  • Ashkenazi Jewish carrier testing (Tay-Sachs, Canavan, etc)
  • Hemoglobinopathy evaluation (CBC and hemoglobin electrophoresis)
  • If your appointment is to discuss a family history concern, please try to bring the medical records of the affected individual in your family.
  • If your appointment is to discuss an ultrasound finding, please bring a copy of that ultrasound report (unless your ultrasound was done at Carnegie Hill Imaging, as we will have that on file).

Having these records prior to your appointment will help to ensure that you are seen on time and that we do not repeat tests that you have already had.
