Primary care for you and your family, close to home.
Pediatric medical genetics uses advanced testing to uncover hereditary causes and provide counsel on treatment paths for children born with congenital disabilities or other challenges to their brain chemistry and development.
Wellstar’s pediatric genetics doctors diagnose babies, children and teens with hereditary disorders, sometimes even before birth. Our compassionate, thoughtful specialists consider factors such as family history and medical history to determine which tests are needed.
Once identified, these pediatric genetic physicians and genetic counselors can guide patients through treatment options for a hereditary condition.
Pregnant women who have abnormal test results are likely to meet with a pediatric medical genetics specialist to see if their baby is at risk for conditions that can cause disabilities. Couples who are trying to conceive and are interested in how their family histories of disorders and congenital disabilities may impact their future children may also seek counsel.
