About Dr. Fred Gilbert: 

Dr. Fred Gilbert is a Pediatric Geneticist with a broad clinical expertise that includes dysmorphia (unusual appearance), unexplained retardation/developmental delays, family histories of genetic problems, genetic disorders in populations, and cancer genetics among other topics.

Patients who should be referred for genetic evaluation include those with unexplained developmental/speech delays, or mental retardation. Also, children who have striking physical features with developmental delays, including small head size (microcephaly), and those with drug or alcohol exposure in utero, or a family history of children with developmental/speech delays, or a family history of chromosome abnormality. Patients with features of Marfan syndrome (a connective tissue disorder), including tall stature, spider hands, joint laxity (double jointed), heart murmurs, pigeon breast, scoliosis, or any of the above, should be referred for evaluation. Patients who should also be referred for genetic consultation include parents who have a child with congenital malformations (cleft lip and/or palate, congenital heart, congenital dislocated hips, etc.) or a family history of children with problems, or multiple pregnancy losses. And anyone about whom questions are raised concerning genetic risks or diagnosis.
