After making the important decision to have a baby, you will want to take all of the necessary precautions to be sure your baby will be happy and healthy. We offer a wide range of genetic tests and procedures to assess the health of your newborn. These tests are performed when your baby may be at increased risk for birth defects or genetic conditions.
Our genetic counselors have advanced degrees and are certified by the American Board of Genetic Counselors. They work closely with physicians to provide the most comprehensive genetic services and will assist you in making the most informed decisions about your pregnancy based on your personal circumstances. They provide information on your risk for genetic disorders, explain the appropriate genetic tests and make the needed arrangements for testing.
