  • The medical team on each case is always available if you’d like to speak directly with a physician, nurse practitioner or genetic counselor.

Delivery Letters

Approximately 30 days prior to the estimated delivery date, our team will send a report of our findings and recommendations for the perinatal period together with a copy of all diagnostic and consultation reports to the delivery hospital, the referring physician and the patient.
