The Genetics service at the Joseph M Sanzari Children’s Hospital was established in 1979 and has been in the forefront of clinical genetics in northern new jersey for over thirty years. The service offers a single resource for all genetic services and testing for both children and adults. Patients are seen by board certified medical geneticists and genetic counselors in the areas of prenatal, pediatric, cancer and adult genetics. We provide risk assessment, evaluation, testing, and management as well as supportive counseling. The genetics service is a NJ Department of health designated newborn screening follow up center. Patients benefit from a collaborative approach to treatment that draws on the expertise of HackensackUMC physicians in other pediatric and adult sub specialties. Our goal is to improve the lives of our patients by providing valuable information from which they can make the best possible decisions.
