Although we do not provide genetic testing, we do provide genetic screening services. Genetic counseling is a communication process that aims to help individuals and families understand the way hereditary contributes to the condition and the risk of recurrence in other family members or future children and also to comprehend the medical information about the specific genetic condition or birth defect in their family. This screening will determine whether you should consider genetic testing. We can refer clients to a genetics counselor who comes from St. Louis to the Jackson County Health Department in Murphysboro, IL. Click here for our clinic locations and phone numbers.
