Our genes are the blueprint for how our bodies work, what we look like, what foods we like, and who we are as a person. Our genes also determine if we are at increased risk for certain disorders, such as cancers or cardiovascular diseases. If the blueprint (our DNA) has mistakes, it can lead to our bodies not functioning as they should - and that can lead to severe illnesses.
Many genetic diseases are very rare and affected individuals often spend years looking for answers. There are very few geneticists in the US and wait times for a genetic evaluation are often very long. We provide appointments as quickly as possible so that our patients can find answers.
