HMH - Pediatric Genetics - Hackensack

All patients at our practice are seen by board certified medical geneticists and/or genetic counselors in the areas of preconception/prenatal, cancer, pediatric and adult genetics. Patients are evaluated for risk assessment, testing and management, as well as supportive counseling. Our goal is to improve the lives of our patients by providing them with the important information they need to make the best possible decisions.
