I am an analyst that often studies (de-identified) patient samples for biomedical research, and it is probably safe to say I have an above-average knowledge about genetics. However, I am not a medical professional, and I never provide consulting about genetic testing at any point during my job. In fact, a large portion of my research involves projects that do not look for mutations in a subject's DNA sequence. In other words, everything I write on my blog about genetic testing is my own personal perspective, independent of any professional responsibilities.
Of course, that leaves the obvious question:
Where can I find someone to discuss genetic testing options?
I would recommend contacting a genetic counselor if you wish to talk to somebody one-on-one about genetic testing options and what action can be taken as a result of those tests. The National Society of Genetic Counselors has a tool to find a genetic counselor near you:
Again, I should emphasize that I am not a genetic counselor myself: if you are genetic counselor or medical geneticist with a better recommendation, I would encourage you to post a comment to this blog post.
