About Medical Genetics Clinic
Are you concerned about a medical condition that runs in your family? The experts at our Medical Genetics Clinic at UAMS offer evaluation, testing, genetic counseling and ongoing patient care for adults and adolescents.
You might benefit from a genetics consultation if you have questions about:
- The cause of a medical condition or a developmental problem.
- The chance of the same condition showing up in your children or other relatives.
- Available choices based on an understanding of medical genetics, existing treatments and other factors.
- Recent genetic discoveries and current research about your condition.
Many of our patients with a family history of illnesses such as breast, ovarian and colon cancer seek testing to determine their risk of developing conditions. Since UAMS is a teaching hospital, we offer state-of-the-art equipment and technology to provide accurate test results. And if testing indicates that you are at risk for developing a condition, we can provide education and counseling to assist patients in making lifestyle changes and choices for better health.
Due to medical advances, many pediatric patients outgrow the care offered at children’s hospitals. With our resources dedicated to specialty care for adult patients, our caring and compassionate doctors can provide a lifelong source of medical care.
The adult genetic clinic is a hub for personalized medicine, providing access to medical geneticists and genetic testing for conditions other than what are considered traditional genetic syndromes. For example, tests that show how an individual metabolizes medications can be used to personalize medication type and dosage.
