Consultations and Genetic Testing

A consultation can be done with our physician on call by contacting the Carolina Consultation Center at (800) 862-6264. Ask for the Pediatric Geneticist on call if the question is about a general genetics problem, but please request the person on-call for the Metabolic service if the patient has or may have an inborn error of metabolism. If there is an urgent appointment need, the on call physician can triage these requests. In many cases, genetic testing can be ordered/completed by the primary care provider prior to the patient appointment. Primary care physicians are encouraged to contact the Carolina Consultation Center with any questions about genetic testing that can be completed prior to the patient’s appointment slot or call our office at 919-966-4202.
