Pediatric Genetics Clinic

The Pediatric Genetics Clinic, a joint effort of the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children's Hospital, is dedicated to providing comprehensive medical genetic consultation and services to patients and their families in issues dealing with heredity.

Patients are generally referred through their primary care physicians or other specialist. However, appropriate self-referrals are accepted.

The clinic is staffed by board-certified medical geneticists. The clinical staff renders appropriate screening, diagnosis, evaluation, counseling, and treatment for patients with a family history or a presumed diagnosis of a genetic condition. In addition to laboratory services provided by Texas Children's, we also utilize our department's own state-of-the-art biochemical, cytogenetic, DNA diagnostic, and mitochondrial laboratories located at Baylor College of Medicine.

The Pediatric Genetics Clinic serves patients nationally and from around the world. The clinic constantly strives to maintain top professionals in the field and continues to conduct genetic research. Through research, we are able to make an impact in the field of genetics by providing new and exciting techniques and information which are recognized by others on an international scale.
