Dr Fran Kendall is 100% focused on patient care for children & adults from around the world with rare genetic, metabolic, mitochondrial & inherited disorders by providing:

  • evaluation, 
  • consultation, 
  • next gen sequencing, 
  • whole exome sequencing (WES), 
  • buccual swab (cheek) testing, 
  • biopsies, 
  • testing interpretation, 
  • medical record review, 
  • second opinions performed remotely, 
  • diagnosis & ongoing management.

We are a strictly clinical practice completely independent from the politics of large institutions and have no laboratory affiliation to avoid conflicts of interest or financial incentives in the tests that may be ordered. Testing is only a component of what we do, it is not all we do. Dr Kendall is far more focused on improving the quality of life of her patients.

If testing is needed, we order testing that is necessary and strictly in your best interest. We capitalize on our flexibility by sending testing to whatever facility or lab that may be doing the best, most cutting edge work while taking into account your insurance and which labs may have better contracts with your insurance. This approach avoids being invested in any single laboratory technology or technique but open to the most cutting edge advancements that provide the best results and most cost effective approach for our patients.

We practice medicine the old fashion way - yet by incorporating the latest technologies for your benefit. You will always receive one on one personalized care from a doctor who is a genetic expert with over 20 years of experience. The issues you face are important to us and you should have the best care possible at all times! 

No higher compliment can be received than to earn your trust and assist in your care. Check out what our patients say about us at our Testimonials page.
