Philosophy of Care
I am passionate about providing parents with the knowledge to make informed decisions regarding pregnancy screening and diagnostic testing options. In particular, I strive to discuss information about emerging genetic technologies with all patients. I provide families with information and resources they need as they try to understand genetic testing and genetic diseases.
