Certain genetic conditions can affect your child’s health or development. Our team of pediatric genetic specialists will work closely with you and your child to assess, diagnose, and treat any genetic issues.
Your child’s doctor might recommend further testing if your child has:
- Birth defects
- Genetic syndrome
- Inborn error of metabolism
- Growth problem
- Intellectual disability
- Lysosomal storage disease
Our experienced genetic counselors steer you toward helpful resources and services. We guide your family in understanding the effects of a genetic condition. This includes education about risks you and your child may face today and in the future.
