When you or your child have a confirmed or suspected genetic condition, you have questions about what the best care is and how to achieve the best care. At WVU Medicine Children’s, we provide you with answers, care, and compassion in a warm and personalized environment.

The WVU Medicine Children’s Medical Genetics and Personalized Medicine Program team specializes in uncovering the possible genetic roots and providing the highest quality care of birth defects, inborn error of metabolism, and other health conditions that emerges from abnormalities in human genome.

Whether dealing with a known condition or needing genetic evaluation and appropriate genetic testing, our team delivers the guidance, support, and expertise you need.

The Medical Genetics and Personalized Medicine Program brings together board-certified geneticists, trained nurse practitioners, certified genetic counselors, dietitians, and nurses who advocate for you and your child and collaborate with colleagues working in other divisions within WVU Medicine.
