Genetic Services for Children

About Our Service

Genetic counseling is offered by our pediatric genetics clinic to families of children with inherited disorders, birth defects, developmental delays or who have a family history of a genetic condition.

Your child’s evaluation includes a complete family and pregnancy history. Our goal is to help you discover the cause of your child’s condition or to provide information on a previously diagnosed genetic disorder.

A medical geneticist and a genetic counselor offer up-to-date genetic testing, diagnosis and recurrence risk counseling to families seeking care.

Our Cytogenetics Laboratory provides chromosome analysis on amniotic fluid, chorionic villus samples, peripheral blood, products of conception, skin fibroblasts and bone marrow. Additional testing includes fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) and constitutional chromosomal microarray analyses.
