What Dr. Lusy Aghajanova has to say about Orchid
“Now more than ever, couples are proactively involved in their reproductive care and family planning. I see this first-hand with the patients I take care of at Stanford. Orchid brings the long overdue promise of “precision medicine” directly to couples seeking comprehensive, advanced genetic screening for their growing family. This enabling technology could not have come at a better time. I’m excited to see my fellow physician colleagues and future patients embrace a future with improved prevention strategies for chronic debilitating diseases.”
