Molecular Genetic and Genomic Testing at Stanford Medicine
As part of a joint initiative between SHC and LPCH to lay strong foundations for the unfolding Era of Genomic Medicine, a consult service for genetic and genomic test review is being developed by both hospitals. The service currently includes a genetic counselor, a molecular pathologist, and a medical geneticist, and will primarily provide consultation for the selection and processing of genetic and genomic tests. In order to achieve this goal, the service will work together with the different departments and services at LPCH and SHC to create guidelines and protocols for testing. While this service is being developed, collegial phone calls may occur to discuss the rationale for the selection of certain genetic tests and to make suggestions in some instances. The ultimate goal is to continue providing outstanding and cutting-edge care for our patients in the Era of Genomic Medicine. More information on this service will follow as it is developed. For questions or to access the service prior to ordering genetic and genomic testing, you may contact: Linbo Yu, genetic counselor, at LYu@stanfordhealthcare.org or 650-736-6926.
