What we do

The team of counsellors and visiting geneticists at each of our sites offer a variety of clinical and testing services for individuals and families with genetic concerns.  Genetic counselling will provide you with information and guidance that can help you understand and deal with the diagnosis of a genetic condition.

NRGP Genetic services are offered at no charge to Ontario residents, but require a referral from your doctor or other healthcare provider.
