Genetic testing is a powerful tool that can give you the information you need to make informed decisions about your or your child's risk of inheriting a genetic condition.

Our experienced genetic counselors can help you decide if genetic testing is right for you and will carefully explain your test results and treatment options in collaboration with the geneticist. Our genetic testing services include:

  • Carrier testing to determine if you or your partner are carriers for particular genetic conditions
  • Diagnostic testing
  • Testing to determine if you're at risk for a specific genetic condition
  • Prenatal testing
Preconception + prenatal testing
