Our geneticist specializes in childhood genetic diseases, providing expert evaluation for children with growth or learning differences, developmental disabilities, syndromes, and moderate metabolic disorders. This also extends to reproductive medicine in conjunction with Driscoll’s maternal fetal medicine specialists. Our comprehensive genetic evaluation process includes a thorough assessment of medical and family history, a physical examination, a review of laboratory results, and in-depth discussions about available genetic testing options.

Patients can be seen for clinical genetic, developmental, and to some extent metabolic evaluation at Driscoll Children’s Hospital or outreach clinics in Victoria, Brownsville, Harlingen, McAllen or Laredo.
