Diagnostic care, management and treatment plans for adults with genetic conditionsThe Harvey Institute for Human Genetics cares for adults who are at risk to inherit an adult-onset genetic condition or those seeking treatment for a prediagnosed genetic disorder. Depending on the individual case, a person may be given tests to identify genetic risk factors, along with consultation about options for management or treatment. Patients who seek genetic counseling & evaluation typically have a:
- Genetic condition who would like periodic monitoring by a specialist
- Family history of a genetic condition
- Family history of cancer
*Please do not send us additional pages with medical history information.*
Genetics Consultation Visit
- A known or suspected genetic condition
- A family history of a genetic condition

During your initial visit, Dr. Francomano and her team will gather a detailed medical and family history. She will examine you and with permission, photographs may be taken. At the end of the visit, findings are reviewed, a diagnosis is established, confirmed or ruled out and any management recommendations are made. A typical new patient visit will last approximately 2 hours. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled as needed.
How Long Will It Take to Get an Appointment?
We are scheduling new patient appointments approximately 30 months ahead of time. We also maintain a cancellation list and can offer earlier appointments if they become available as the result of a cancellation. If you would like to be added to the cancellation list, please notify us at the time you make your appointment.
