Medical Genetics Program of Southwestern Ontario

The Medical Genetics Program of Southwestern Ontario provides comprehensive services in medical genetics to individuals, couples, and families in London and surrounding area, in a caring, respectful, and compassionate environment for all patients. The purpose of genetic assessment is to evaluate individuals or families who are, or think they are, at risk of having a genetic condition that could be passed on to their children.

Through the course of our assessment a family history is taken and analyzed, and relevant records are reviewed. Clinical examination and diagnostic testing may also be performed to establish a diagnosis. Genetic counseling helps to provide an understanding of the diagnosis, the recurrence risk and options available to individuals and families.
