Reliable Direction and Customized Tele-Genetic Counseling Solutions
Established in 2016, Advanced Tele-Genetic Counseling (AT-GC) is a woman-owned small practice that staffs board-certified genetic counselors to provide support to patients, providers, and organizations through telehealth.
With a shortage of genetic counselors worldwide, an increasing number of patients seeking genetic testing, the number and complexity of genetic tests entering the market daily, and the difficulty in staffing and affordability for genetic counseling care, Advanced Tele-Genetic Counseling offers a flexible platform and scalable genetic counseling solutions through a core group of licensed and certified genetic counselors to meet your organization’s needs for genetic counseling support.
Like the differences in our individual genomes that make us unique, AT-GC realizes that the needs of no two organizations are alike, and strives to provide customized solutions through our nimble and efficient approach to genetic counseling care.
We are dedicated to increasing access to and affordability of genetic counseling care and to increasing genetic health equity for all, no matter the location, anytime, and anywhere.
With patient consultations available within days of referral, AT-GC offers rapid turnaround and a drastic reduction in clinical wait times. Whereas the national average trends toward 3-6 months, we routinely see patients within 3 days or less. With dedicated AT-GC team members standing by, we’re here for your practice when you need us, even when unexpected.
Reduce Physician Liability & Free Up Time
requests for complex genetic tests are changed through correction or improvement following genetic counselor review, leading to substantial cost savings with canceled tests.
Outsourcing to AT-GC’s genetic counselors means that valuable physician time can be spent on other aspects of patient care while reducing your providers’ liability.
AT-GC provides access to a team of certified genetic counselors with financially-conscious models that reflect our commitment to growing solutions together with our partners, allowing them to utilize our team’s expertise when and where they need.
Flexible, Customizable Integration
The nimbleness of our telehealth genetic counseling platform means that we are free to design and implement customized workflows, scheduling options, and reliable extensions for connecting with your team and patients while integrating into your existing systems.
Promote Local Retention, Prevent Patient Leakage
Personalized explanations and recommendations related to patient care are sent directly to referring physicians, encouraging continuity of care and ongoing health management within your existing system, encouraging patient retention through personalized genetic reports with suggestions for follow-up care, screening, and management.
Support, On Your Terms
Whether your team is seeking a systemwide, multidisciplinary, long-term genetic counseling solution without the risk of hiring, or needs a little extra interim support for your genetic counselor’s temporary absence, AT-GC is here to help. We provide truly comprehensive genetic counseling for all sorts of needs, including high-volume coverage, to reduce backlog and provide distant site/outreach support, and to fulfill accreditation requirements.
Patient-centric appointments address the genetic as well as psychosocial implications for patients. Appointments are not time-limited, but instead, are concluded based on the patient’s satisfactory understanding. We offer complimentary language translation and real-time counseling in multiple languages, including Spanish.

We’re ready to help, anytime, and anywhere.
Patients who complete a genetic counseling appointment with an AT-GC genetic counselor report an accurate perception of their risks and say that the experience exceeded their expectations. There is no difference in patient knowledge or satisfaction compared to in-person genetic counseling.
