North Shore Genetics is a specialist clinical genetics practice co-located with The Paediatric Cinic at North Shore Private Hospital in St Leonards. We see both adults and children for the purpose of diagnosing genetic conditions, assessing an individual's risk of inheriting a genetic condition and to organise and interpret complex genetic tests, where applicable. We see couples that are planning a pregnancy to advise on which tests would be most appropriate before and during the pregnancy.
