Genetic Counselling

A very critical aspect of clinical genetics that involves communicating genetics information to patients and their families each GENETIC COUNSELLING, involves providing families and individuals with accurate information about the nature and genetic disorders, their inheritance patterns and available options for managing or preventing these disorders.

Our centre provides a dedicated place for the diagnosis, treatment, management and preventions of all suspected genetic disorders and an inclusive (first of its kind ‘GENETIC CLINIC’ in Prayagraj).
