Day of your Appointment

What to Expect on the Day of Your Appointment

On the day of your appointment, you will meet with a movement disorders specialist, a neurogenetics specialist and a genetic counselor for a full clinical evaluation, including a detailed review of your family history and a thorough neurological exam. We will discuss the nature of your condition, and may recommend one or more genetic tests. Our expert genetic counselors will explain if and how genetic testing may help you, and provide strategies for approaching your test results.

If you choose to undergo genetic testing, you and your family will meet with a genetic counselor to review your results and determine next steps. No matter what your tests conclude, we will be with you every step of the way.
