I think it is time to jettison the last vestiges of genetic exceptionalism and realize that the field of medicine, as a whole, is fraught with sensitive findings, unpleasant surprises, and privacy concerns discovered in the course of routine workups. Genetics is no different. By carving up the genome into manageable pieces, we can deal with this problem in partnership with our patients.
