Pediatrics - Genetics

Boston Medical Center's Pediatric Specialty Group offers genetic consultations on Thursdays. Clinical Genetics is a medical specialty that provides diagnostic and management services for individuals who have inherited disorders or birth defects. Children with birth defects, unusual physical features, developmental days, abnormal growth or unusual behaviors are often referred for a genetics evaluation to determine if a genetic condition could explain their features. It is important to remember that many children referred to pediatric genetics do not end up having a genetic condition.
