Genetic counseling or genetic counseling is a service to provide all the information and support to couples who suffer from or are at risk of transmitting a genetic disorder.

In the consultation, the geneticist analyzes all the family history of the patients and the genetic studies performed in order to be able to inform about the genetic risks that exist, as well as to recommend the most appropriate treatment in each case.
