• Meet the Team

    The partnership between the Molecular Genetics Laboratory and the Ear and Hearing Center at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center allows for optimum care of your patients.

    We are staffed by a team of experts who provide guidance in:

    • Test selection
    • Clinical interpretation
    • Medical management and follow-up testing
    • Recommendations for genetic counseling
    • Coordination of studies for at-risk family members
    • Billing and reimbursement

    Clinical interpretations are written in conjunction with our nationally recognized pediatric otolaryngologist, board certified molecular and medical geneticists and genetic counselor. Each report is customized for your patient and includes a detailed interpretation of the genetic findings, the clinical significance of the results and specific recommendations for clinical management and additional testing, if warranted. These specialists are available to you for pre- or post-test consultation.
