About Genetics

Our geneticists see adults as well as children, and can provide comprehensive evaluations and testing for genetic, familial and congenital disorders, including:

  • Neurofibromatosis
  • Connective tissue disorders
  • Cancer predisposition
  • Neurological conditions
  • Hearing loss
  • Skeletal disorders
  • Syndromes of multiple malformations
  • Inborn errors of metabolism
  • Chromosome abnormalities and birth defects
  • Developmental delay or mental retardation
  • Unexplained pregnancy loss (miscarriage)
  • Family history of specific genetic condition

Our genetic counselors assist individuals and families in understanding the diagnosis, treatment and management of a genetic disorder. When appropriate, they may refer you to a specialist for treatment of a specific condition. They may also direct you to resources, support groups or agencies that can provide emotional and other support.
