Preparing For Your Appointment
To help you prepare for your individualized medicine appointment at Mayo Clinic, please collect information about the diseases and other medical conditions of your blood-related family members. This includes your parents, sisters, brothers, grandparents, children and grandchildren.
Bring copies of any previous genetic test results for you, your child or other biological relatives.
If the appointment is for a child, both parents should attend the appointment if possible.
Your health care team will review your family history during your visit. For certain appointment types, your care team may send you a link in advance to collect your family history in an electronic format.
Making an informed decision about whether or not to have an evaluation at Mayo Clinic is personal and depends on your goals and values related to health, illness, disease and family relationships. This downloadable and printable PDF from the Center for Individualized Medicine may help.
