Genetic Counselor: See a genetic counselor to arrange testing. University hospitals have clinical or medical genetics divisions. Otherwise, an OB doctor, a fertility clinic, or a maternal fetal medicine or high-risk OB clinic can refer you. If you are going to have kids preimplantation genetic diagnosis (pgd) to prevent your child from having huntington's is possible, without disclosing if you have the disease.
