About GeneMatters

GeneMatters was founded to ensure that everyone has access to expert genetic counseling when they need it. Our mission is to increase access to genetic counseling services and provide a cost-effective, efficient and comprehensive genetic counseling experience. With the exponential growth in the genetic testing market, more patients are in need of genetic counseling. There is a current shortage of genetic counselors to match this growth, and our telehealth model answers this need.

We partner with hospitals, health networks, clinics, academic centers and genetic testing labs that need to expand access to genetic counseling services. We combine genetic counseling with our telehealth platform to seamlessly integrate with our partners. Our board-certified and licensed genetic counselors help people understand their genetic family history, decide if genetic testing is right for them, choose the right test, and understand their results to make informed decisions.
