DDSN Clinics

The Greenwood Genetic Center provides genetic evaluations for individuals and families served by the SC Department of Disabilities and Special Needs (SCDDSN). These clinical evaluations may provide a better understanding of the cause of the disability and can provide information for families regarding medical issues, future expectations and reproductive risks.

Individuals and families interested in a genetic evaluation can discuss a referral with their early interventionist or service coordinator or they may call the GGC office that is closest to them in Greenwood, Charleston, Columbia, Florence or Greenville.

Our Genetic Service Coordinators serve patients in all counties of SC. Individuals referred through DDSN can be seen at a the nearest GGC office or at a clinic in their county of residence.
