BMC’s Yawkey building doors are now closed as an entrance as part of our ongoing efforts to enhance our campus and provide you with the best clinical care.

All patients and visitors on our main campus must enter our hospital via Shapiro, Menino, or Moakley buildings, where they will be greeted by team members at a new centralized check-in desk before continuing to the hospital. We are excited to welcome you and appreciate your patience as we improve our facilities.

Medical geneticist Jodi Hoffman, MD, and the genetics team provide diagnostic and management services for adults who have inherited disorders, genetic conditions, or birth defects. Patients seen in this clinic often have connective tissue disorders (Marfan syndrome and Ehlers Danlos syndrome, etc) as well as neurofibromatosis types 1 and 2, tuberous sclerosis, Down syndrome, rare cancer syndromes, and others. Consultations and genetic testing are also provided for personal and family history of conditions with genetic causes, such as heritable eye disorders, hearing loss, cardiac disorders, and more.
