Services Provided: Genetic counseling is one of the many services offered in the Maternal Fetal Diagnostic Center. Patients are educated about their prenatal testing options, as well as their risk of having a child with a birth defect or genetic disease. Our genetic counselors are specialty trained, licensed professionals who help determine what tests are appropriate for each family. When testing is complete, our counselors clearly explain the results and provide education and counseling if necessary.

First trimester screening
Abnormal maternal serum screening
Advanced maternal age
Abnormal finding by ultrasound examination
Recurrent miscarriage
Family history of a birth defect or genetic disease
Preconceptional counseling is also offered.
