The Pediatric Genetics staff offers genetic evaluations and counseling for pediatric patients and parents.
Marshfield Clinic is the only health care provider in the region that offers genetic evaluations and counseling for pediatric patients and parents. Our Pediatric Genetics Department can evaluate your infant, children or family for underlying genetic conditions that could affect their health.
We can assist you and your other physicians in deciding whether genetic testing is needed, understudying the results of genetic tests, anticipating effects of a genetic condition for the individual and family, and coordination of care for individuals or families with genetic disorders.
We also provide information related to dealing with the emotional reaction to genetic conditions as well as genetic counseling for parents planning to start a family.
We identify underlying genetic conditions that could affect health; assist in understanding results; and provide resources to manage conditions.
