The Inova Genetic Therapeutic Clinic is a dedicated clinic for patients of all ages diagnosed with a genetic disorder eligible for treatment with a genetic therapeutic. A genetic therapeutic is a therapy designed to treat patients with a specific genetic diagnosis. The Inova Genetic Therapeutic Clinic will provide a team-based approach to facilitate diagnosis and establish an individualized management plan.

Genetic testing is readily accessible and the genetics team at Inova can help with genetic testing for any patient suspected of a genetic disorder. Upon diagnosis, the genetics team will offer genetic counseling, patient education, genetic testing for family members, connection to multi-specialty providers, and provide access to eligible genetic therapeutics, including FDA approved genetic therapeutics. This comprehensive approach is made possible by a support team that will assist in scheduling appointments, financial authorization, pharmacy support, and care-coordination. Inova has adult and pediatric infusion centers as well as radiology support for administration of genetic therapeutics.

The Inova Genetic Therapeutic Clinic strives to provide a comprehensive approach to delivering excellent care for our patients with genetic diagnoses.
