Deborah Wells, MS, CGC, is a board-certified genetic counselor. She specializes in maternal fetal medicine, reproductive endocrinology and infertility.

With 25 years of experience, she counsels families who are pregnant or considering pregnancy to discuss advanced maternal age, abnormal screening in pregnancy, ultrasound abnormalities, teratogen exposures and family history of genetic conditions.

She believes it is important for families to understand medical information in a meaningful way. She works with them on the journey of how a diagnosis may impact their family and pregnancy outcomes.

In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family and enjoying nature. She enjoys all types of exercise – running, kickboxing and playing tennis and pickleball.

“Helping every patient navigate information about their family histories, medical histories and prenatal testing in ways that align with their concerns, desires and values is extremely rewarding.” – Deborah Wells, MS, CGC
