Our Medical Genetics Team

. . .

Shodair’s Medical Genetics Program provides Montana’s only comprehensive care for children and adults with genetic conditions. A team composed of a medical geneticist (MD who specializes in genetics) and a certified genetic counselor provide comprehensive services, including diagnostic evaluation, care coordination, and risk assessment. In addition to ordering genetic studies, the geneticist is also involved in the test analysis, allowing for seamless care integration that benefits the patients as well as their families. Finally, a licensed clinical psychologist provides neuropsychological assessments, as indicated.
