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

  • Birth defects
  • Neurofibromatosis

  • Neurological conditions
  • Hearing loss
  • Skeletal disorders

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.
