The Genetics Division at St. Joseph’s Children’s Hospital is staffed by a Board-certified medical geneticist and Board-certified genetic counselors who provide a full range of genetic services, including testing, diagnosis, treatment and counseling of pediatric and adult patients who have concerns about genetic disorders.

Pediatric genetic services are available for families who have a child with a learning disability, developmental delay, birth defect(s), physical disability, or suspected genetic condition.

Cancer genetic counseling is provided to individuals with a personal or family history of cancer, and are concerned about their risk for a secondary cancer or the risk for cancer in other family members.

Adult genetic services are available for adults with a suspected or known genetic condition, birth defect or disability who are seeking diagnosis, further medical information, aid in medical management, or answers to questions about the risks for their children.

Prenatal genetic counseling is for individuals who are currently pregnant or planning a pregnancy, and either through pregnancy history, family history, age, blood work, or fetal ultrasound, might be at an increased risk for having a child with a birth defect, mental retardation, or genetic condition.
