Adult Genetics Clinic Services

The Adult Genetics Clinic at Brigham and Women’s Hospital focuses exclusively on the care of adult patients. We provide care for individuals in need of genetic risk assessment, genetic testing, genetic diagnosis, genetic counseling, or management of genetic disease. Our clinical program focuses exclusively on the care of adult patients provided by clinicians who have received dual training in internal medicine and medical genetics. The geneticists and genetic counselors are experts in the diagnosis, management and counseling issues related to adult onset disease as well as the care of adults with genetic disease diagnosed in childhood. We work collaboratively with other specialists at our institution, throughout the Harvard Medical affiliates, and throughout the world.
