My care philosophy

Most of us know that our genetic make-up is fundamental to how our body works, but when faced with the possibility of a genetic related disease, the implications can feel very frightening, complex and intense. A knowledgeable and kind professional can be incredibly helpful at that time to understand complex risks and healthcare decisions. Our team takes a holistic approach to the needs of the individual and the family. At the same time, having an expert in rare diseases, someone who has heard of, and knows about, the condition you are facing, is helpful and important. We know that genetic conditions can be managed, treated, and outcomes can improve.
