The Department of Molecular and Human Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, is one of the leading genetics departments in the world, offering unparalleled clinical treatment and counseling and a full range of diagnostic genetic testing through our diagnostic laboratories.

As the largest clinical genetics program in the country, we offer a single resource for all genetic services and testing, thanks to our affiliations with other medical departments and hospitals within the world-renowned Texas Medical Center.

Here you will find some of the most respected and highly-trained geneticists in the field. Our physicians are experts in their individual areas of interest and renowned for research discoveries that yield the latest information on genetic diseases and their causes and state-of-the-art testing methodologies.

Our large clinical faculty ensures timely, expert assistance for each patient. Patients also benefit from a collaborative approach to treatment that draws not only on the expertise of other physicians within our own department, but also from Baylor College of Medicine physicians in other specialties, providing outside expertise without the need to schedule additional appointments.

Collectively, our goal is to improve the lives of our patients by providing valuable information from which they can make the best possible decisions. Our patient-friendly approach emphasizes minimal wait times and paper work, timely new patient visits, and expanded office hours to accommodate a growing demand for our services.
