Cancer Genetics​

There are many benefits of Genetic Cancer Testing including, identifying a cancer gene mutation in the family, increase surveillance to identify a cancer at its earliest stage making prevention therapy and surgery possible. Testing can also increase your option of participating in clinical trials and research studies.

Prenatal Genetics

Genetic counseling is the process of determining the risk you have of passing on an inheritable disease to your baby, which involves: identifying families at risk, identifying and explaining the hereditary disorder present in the family, analyzing inheritance patterns and risk of recurrence, reviewing available options with the family.

Prenatal Screenings

We offer both genetic screening tests and diagnostic tests. Genetic screening is measuring a level of risk for genetic diseases in the fetus. Diagnostic tests can actually detect many genetic conditions caused by defects in a gene or chromosome.

Clinical Genetics

Evaluation of babies/ infants/ Children and adults with birth defects/ multiple congenital anomalies, developmental delay, speech and language deficit, intellectual disability, and behavioral disorders (ADHD, Autism, etc.).
