INITIAL CONSULTATION

The initial consultation visit is with the female patient and her husband or partner. During this visit, the doctor will review medical and genetic history, perform a physical examination and discuss diagnosis, prognosis and future plans. At this time, scheduling can be done for further diagnostic testing that has never been performed and possibly repeat tests in which results may be outdated. Blood work may be obtained during this initial visit. The couple should check with their insurance company to determine if a specific laboratory or referral needs to be used. Follow up visits will be arranged with Dr. Padilla or Dr. Bass depending on the physicians’ availability the day of the next appointment.
