You and your healthcare provider will discuss which screening test is best suited for you. A simple blood draw will be performed, and depending on which test you select, an ultrasound or blood pressure may be taken as well. Your sample, along with some additional medical information, will be sent  to NTD Eurofins.

Genetic Counseling

For genetic testing, NTD has partnered with GeneMatters to provide our patients with genetic counseling services.

How It Works

Your doctor may have recommended that you have genetic counseling. Telehealth services through GeneMatters are available to provide deep medical expertise for personalized genetic counseling sessions.

A Genetic Counseling Session with Our Genetic Counselors Can Help You:

  • Understand your risk given your family history and/or a genetic test result
  • Determine if genetic testing is a good option for you
  • Choose the right genetic test
  • Understand your results
  • Make the most informed healthcare decisions

If you decide to receive genetic counseling, you will be matched with a genetic counselor with expertise that will help with your questions. The sessions are phone-based and typically 30-minutes in length. After the session, you will receive an easy-to-understand summary of the discussion and next steps. This summary will be sent to your doctor as well.
