Services We Provide
Clinical Evaluation and Risk Assessment
Genetic testing, the analysis of a person’s genes, can help understand the root cause of neurological symptoms. Testing can also identify risks for other family members, and future pregnancies. At NewYork-Presbyterian, our experienced and compassionate clinical genetics specialists provide compassionate genetic counseling and formulate a care plan tailored to your unique needs.
Early Diagnosis and Collaborative Care
At your initial visit to our neurogenetics clinic, a genetic counselor and research associate will meet with you and your child to obtain a comprehensive personal and family history. A physician from our team will perform a thorough neurologic and physical exam. We offer comprehensive genetic testing that may include specialized genetic panels, whole-exome sequencing, whole-genome sequencing, and parental testing. Blood draws are performed on-site at the time of the visit.
Through NewYork-Presbyterian’s unique programs and vast resources, infants and children with rare or undiagnosed neurologic diseases receive comprehensive diagnostic services and cutting-edge treatment. When appropriate, we identify research studies for which patients may qualify to understand their condition better or access new treatments in clinical trials.
