The Genetics and Genomics Clinic

Book a Genetic Consultation


Committed To Genomics based Diagnosis Excellence

Clinical (or Medical) Genetics is a medical specialty that uses genetic and genomic information to diagnose and treat hereditary disorders, maintaining and improving the health of individuals and families. Given the lack of medical genetics professionals in the U.S., wait times are significant and costs are high. We provide diagnostic evaluations for patients with known or suspected genetic diseases, counseling services for families and patients with genetic disorders or at risk for them, along with educational activities for the public, teaching of students/ fellows and groundbreaking research.
