Our Approach

The Genetics Clinic at The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio provides evaluation, diagnosis, genetic counseling, treatment, and management for pediatric and adult patients with a known or suspected genetic condition.

The initial evaluation usually includes a detailed medical and family history, physical examination, and discussion about genetic testing, if recommended.

When a genetic diagnosis is known, we provide information to families about the pattern of inheritance, potential complications and prognosis of the condition, and testing options for at risk family members.

The genetic specialists at The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio are committed to improving the quality of life for patients and their families with genetic conditions. Our team is ready to help you and your health care team better understand your genetic health.
