Our Process for Genetic Counseling Consultations

Step One: referral and Patient communication

As a Metis Partner, you make an online referral for the patient on the Metis Portal.  We communicate directly with the patient to explain our role so they understand how we work in collaboration with you to ensure they understand the implications of their genetic tests.

Step two: TEst Education and online scheduling 

The patient logs in to the Metis Portal with credentials provided during the referral process.  On the patient's home page, the patient has access to test-specific materials and videos to help ease the educational burden on you and to provide consistent information to each patient.  If appropriate, patients can use the online scheduler to make a genetic counseling consultation.  At any time, patients can access their home page to print materials or watch the videos again with family members.

Step Three: Expert Genetic Counseling and Recommended Next steps 

Once test results have been returned, the patient attends their genetic counseling consultation via the Metis Portal or by telephone, according to the patient's preference.  Within 48 hours of the a completed consultation, we send you a comprehensive genetic counseling report that summarizes the information discussed with the patient and any recommended next steps.  Patients continue to have access to all resources and can contact us with additional questions at their convenience.
