Genetic testing to assess your risk

We offer genetic services to help you understand your genetic risk for certain conditions, such as cancer and heart disease, and tailor treatments based on your unique needs.

Types of genetic testing we perform include:

  • Carrier screening: A genetic test used to determine if a healthy person is a carrier of a recessive genetic disease. It provides life-lasting information about an individual's reproductive risk and their chances of having a child with a genetic disease.
  • Genetic testing for hereditary cancer: A genetic test used to determine if a healthy person is at risk for hereditary cancer conditions.
  • Non-Invasive prenatal screening (NIPS): A genetic test that can be administered as early as 10 weeks into pregnancy to screen for specific chromosomal abnormalities that can impact the health of the baby.
