Genetics and Preventive Genomics Clinic
The UCSF Adult Genetics and Preventive Genomics Clinic provides comprehensive genetic assessments and counseling for patients who may be at risk for hereditary conditions, based on their personal or family medical history.
We also offer counseling and can help arrange testing for patients who are interested in using information from broader genetic tests for preventive health care and family planning. We're one of the few clinics nationwide dedicated to providing this service to adults.
