Genomics in the news:
- Cracking your genetic code
- Advancements in genetic testing
- DNA sequencing leads to diagnosis and treatment
Our team of experts, including David Dimmock, MD, David Bick, MD, Gunter Scharer, MD, PhD, and Regan Veith, MS, CGC, were one of the first in the nation to use genome sequencing to diagnose and treat a child for his undiagnosed genetic condition. Click here to learn more about the story.
Our experts recognize genomics as a powerful diagnostic tool and utilize a refined process for education, analysis and reporting results. Drs. Dimmock and Bick also are on staff at Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin allowing them to diagnose and manage pediatric and adult genetic disorders utilizing a patient and family-centered care approach. Both are molecular genetics experts trained in the interpretation of genomic information.
