What To Expect at Your Visit
A thorough evaluation including questions about your/ your child’s medical history, obtaining a family history and a comprehensive physical examination.
Genetic Counseling – Our genetic counselors are here to support and guide you and your family helping you approach genetic healthcare decisions in a way that best aligns with your priorities and values.
Genetic Testing – If indicated, we may discuss the option of genetic testing. Genetic testing is typically done on blood or (in some cases) cheek swab samples.
