Cardiovascular Genetic and Genomic Medicine Clinic


At the Cardiovascular Genetic and Genomic Medicine Clinic, a team, including a cardiologist, genetic counselor and nurse, performs an extensive evaluation to create a personalized prevention and/or treatment plan for cardiovascular health.

An appointment with Ohio State’s Cardiovascular Genetic and Genomic Medicine Clinic begins with a consultation with a genetic counselor who takes an extensive family history and performs a genetic risk assessment. Then patients meet with a cardiologist who completes a targeted cardiovascular medical history and physical exam. Lab testing for risk factors and cardiovascular imaging studies may also be ordered. Based on this information, the clinical team then creates a personalized prevention and/or treatment plan for cardiovascular health.
