Patient Information

We are a telehealth practice.  This means all evaluations are conducted via an  audio/video HIPPA compliant program.  Our office will  guide you through the process. All correspondence between the patient and the office is done via our portal/electronic medical record program or by phone/fax.

 

An evaluation with our practice includes medical history, family history, physical exam, genetic testing/other lab tests (if needed) and  interpretation of lab results. If you are diagnosed with a genetic disorder,  Dr. Sorrentino will also write a medical plan for your doctors and continue to manage your medical care. Genetic counseling is provided as needed.

The patient must be present at all visits. 

Please supply records of all specialist evaluations, imaging studies ( e.g., x-rays, CT scans, MRIs, sonograms etc.), genetic testing/lab/biopsy before  your visit. 

At the time of the visit, you will be expected to provide a medical history for the patient, his/her parents and grandparents. This is referred to as a family history.  

Please be advised that genetics consultations are time consuming. Expect that your appointment will last 45-60 minutes or longer.  

Per federal and state regulations, genetic testing requires the consent of a competent adult and/or legal guardian of a minor child/special needs adult.

Proof of guardianship and court orders affecting parental rights must be provided before the appointment for both evaluation and genetic testing.

Please check with your insurance company to determine whether labs ordered or referrals made will be covered/are in network.
