The Genetics Clinic at The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio provides evaluation, diagnosis, genetic counseling, treatment, and management for pediatric and adult patients.
Examples of commonly evaluated genetic conditions include autism, birth defects, intellectual disability, chromosome abnormalities, and hereditary cancer. For many individuals, we can find a genetic explanation for their slow development, intellectual disability, short stature, heart defect, hearing loss, visual impairment, autism, and many other conditions. There are several benefits to knowing your precise genetic diagnosis. Identifying the correct condition can help you find the best services and medications, help you connect with other families with the same diagnosis, provide a roadmap to future health, and let you know the chance this condition could happen again in your family.
The genetic specialists at The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio are committed to improving the quality of life for patients (and their families) living with genetic conditions. Our clinical geneticists and genetic counselors are ready to help you, your family, your doctors, and your health care team understand your genetic health.
