If a follow-up appointment is necessary for any reason, the Genetic Counsellor will arrange for this through the secretary. In most cases, she will mail an appointment slip to you.
If you have decided to undergo genetic testing, the date of your follow-up visit will depend on the estimated time needed to obtain your results.
If after meeting with the Genetics team, your family history changes and there is a new cancer diagnosis, it is important to speak with your Genetic Counsellor. Your Counsellor will be able to re-evaluate your situation and check if your eligibility for testing has changed, in which case you may be asked to return.
