After 30 years of being based at Windsor-Essex County Health Unit, the Windsor Genetics Outreach Program is changing location. We are currently finalizing details with the new Windsor-based location, and intend to continue to provide genetic counseling services as well as medical genetics consultations in Windsor. Note, cancer genetics referrals will continue to be directed to the Windsor Regional Hospital.
Effective, Monday, April 3, 2017 and until further notice, all results and questions for the Windsor Genetics Outreach Program should be directed to the Medical Genetics Clinic at London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) by:
- Phone: 1-519-685-8500, extension 58453 for general results or extension 52571 for prenatal results.
- Fax: 1-519-685-8214

We hope to minimize disruption of service.
Genetic counselling services provide information allowing clients to make informed decisions about optional testing for prenatal diagnosis, and consider the risks involved. These tests are conducted to identify chromosomal abnormalities. Counselling is recommended for women 40 years of age and older and before 15 weeks gestation.
