Professional Statement

As the supervisor of the Pregnancy Screening Laboratory at Magee-Womens Hospital I am dedicated to providing accurate First and Second-trimester screening results. I have work to communicate results to the referring physicians and provide consultation regarding follow-up for abnormal results. I have provided prenatal genetic counseling to help patients better understand information regarding the implications of prenatal ultrasound findings, testing options, genetic risk assessment, and plans for management.
