Children and adults may be referred for genetic assessment and counselling for a variety of reasons:
- Evaluation and diagnosis of genetic conditions.
- Parent(s) who have had a previous pregnancy or child with a birth defect, developmental delay or a known or suspected genetic condition.
- A family history of a birth defect or a known or suspected genetic condition.
Appointments are provided in person though clinics at the Victoria General Hospital and at outreach clinics throughout Vancouver Island. We also use Telehealth when it is the best option.
Referral from a healthcare professional is required for these services.
