Genetics & Genetic Counseling
Hackensack Meridian Health K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital offers the most advanced pediatric genetic testing in the region, offering genetic services and testing for both children and adults.
In addition to determining a diagnosis, some reasons that individuals may seek genetic evaluation include family history, anticipatory guidance, and reproductive risk assessment. Our specialists can help identify and determine the appropriate tests and provide information about potential treatment and long term outcomes if a patient is diagnosed with a genetic condition. The evaluation process includes a full review of the patient’s medical history and generational family history, followed by appropriate blood, urine and imaging diagnostics, as well as referral to other specialists as needed. As the only pediatric genetic specialty center in the region, our goal is to improve the lives of our patients by providing them with pertinent information needed to make the best medical decisions.
