Genetic counselling at Icon
Icon Hobart is proud to offer a dedicated private genetic counselling service enhancing the comprehensive cancer care support for patients.
Icon Hobart’s genetic counselling service provides cancer risk assessment, genetic testing and advice.
We are able to receive referrals for patients with a personal or family history of breast, ovarian, pancreatic, prostate, bowel, or endometrial cancers.
Our genetic counsellor offers consultation appointments onsite at Icon Hobart and is also able to provide telehealth appointments.
Our certified genetic counsellor, Jo Burke, has over 20 years’ experience providing genetic counselling services to Tasmanian families across disciplines as diverse as pre-natal, paediatric, cardiac, neurological and familial cancer conditions.
We encourage you to contact our genetic counsellor to discuss your eligibility for this service.
To enquire about Icon’s genetic counselling service, please email our genetic counsellor on firstname.lastname@example.org. A doctor’s referral is not required to access genetic counselling services and referrals can be made by patients, carers or healthcare professionals.
An appointment will be made where appropriate and our team will contact you and you will be asked to complete an online questionnaire about your family history of cancer.
