We are thrilled to announce that GeneDx has sequenced over 100,000 exomes. At GeneDx, we are committed to high quality testing and making genetic information accessible to all patients. Help us celebrate this amazing milestone.

Providers:  How has genetic testing helped your patients?

It is amazing how far genetic testing has advanced and how it has affected people's lives in so many ways. Many individuals choose genetic testing because it can provide an explanation of their features and symptoms, help with medical management decisions and/or provide needed information to family members.

We want to hear from you. Tell us your patient's story. Share how genetic testing has helped your patients' healthcare and help us to empower others to understand the benefits of genetic testing!

Use the form below to share a bit about how you've seen genetic testing help a patient, and be entered for a chance to win one of three Amazon Echos.
