Joseph Shieh, M.D., Ph.D.

Medical geneticist

Dr. Joseph Shieh, board certified in medical genetics and pediatrics, specializes in evaluating complex medical problems that are of unknown cause and inherited disorders. He focuses on rare diseases and syndromes that have components of common disorders including congenital anomalies, heart disease and brain disorders. He sees children, adults and families, and is experienced in personalized care.

Shieh is a member of the UCSF Institute for Human Genetics, where he combines state-of-the-art technology with discovery-based research to decipher how genetics impacts health. He is working to optimize patient outcomes through emphasizing diagnostic precision, preventative medicine and comprehensive care.

Shieh graduated from Stanford University. He attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he received his M.D. and his Ph.D. He trained at Seattle Children's Hospital/University of Washington and Stanford University prior to joining UCSF Medical Center. He is a member of the American Society for Human Genetics and is in the UCSF Department of Pediatrics. He is a recipient of the National Institute of Health's National Heart Lung and Blood Institute.
