Genomics and Therapeutics Clinic

Our Genomics and Therapeutics Clinic team can help you and your doctor better understand, predict and prevent disease. We can also help you and your doctor choose the best medications for you based on your unique genetic makeup.

Our team of physicians, pharmacists, clinical geneticists and genetic counselors work together to help determine if genetic testing is right for you. We can then work with you and your care team to apply your results to your care plan. We work closely with your doctor to ensure you receive a personalized medication or treatment plan that is right for you.
