The Center for Medical Genetics is a private academic institute dedicated to providing the most comprehensive genetic testing services available for our patients and physicians. We are committed to serving the needs of our patients by offering convenient, conclusive results in a timely manner.

Established in 1997, we provide a broad range of laboratory services in the rapidly growing field of genetics. These laboratory services include cytogenetics, molecular genetics, biochemical genetics, as well as genetic counseling services.

Our expert staff of professionals include the medical director, Katherine Thompson, MD, FACMG, the founder of the Center. Dr. Thompson received her training in clinical genetics and clinical cytogenetics through Baylor College of Medicine and MD Anderson Cancer Center.

She is a fellow of the American College of Medical Genetics, is active in numerous professional organizations, and is a requested speaker at numerous ongoing medical education courses and seminars.

The cytogenetics  and molecular genetics laboratories are headed by Ph.D's that hold certification by the American Board of Medical Genetics in their specialty.

The Center has a network of highly skilled genetic counselors to service the needs of our patients and referring physicians. All certified genetic counselors have completed a master level program in genetic counseling, and senior level counselors are board certified through the American board of Medical Genetics.

Through our work with the Fetal Medicine Foundation, an international organization established to promote research and training in fetal medicine, we are actively involved in sponsoring training of the ultrasound nuchal translucency techniques. These techniques are used in Ultra-Screen™ testing, a revolutionary new service that offers women conclusive results in the first trimester of pregnancy. We also partner with other centers and organizations dedicated to advancing health through DNA analysis including in the areas of new prenatal diagnostics, and in cancer treatment and diagnostics.
