*Once a patient arrives to the center an appointment is fixed to him/her. An appointment can be taken on phone through the medical secretary.
*On the day of the appointment a file will be opened by the filing unit and sent to the clinic. If he/she had an old file, it will be sent from the filing section to the outpatient clinic.
*The doctor will arrange for general and/or genetic testing, as required, and the patient will be given appointment for follow up to interpret the results of investigations with clinical status to reach the final diagnosis.
*In some situations other family members have to be seen and investigated to give a final decision. In such case more appointments as required will be arranged till a final diagnosis is reached.
