Amy Roberts, MD

Dr. Roberts is originally from Acton, MA and has been in Boston since 2001 when she joined the Harvard Medical School Genetics Training Program.  

Her philosophy of care is to treat each child as an individual and to understand their needs not only in the context of a genetic diagnosis but also how that influences their school, social, and family life. Dr. Roberts fell in love with the discipline of genetics when she was a pediatrics resident. She feels that this is the most exciting time in medicine to practice as a geneticist, as we have never before available tools to understand the genetic underpinnings of cardiovascular disease. With these new tests though comes increased responsibility to practice responsibly, ethically, and always with the best interest of the child and his or her family foremost in mind.
