I cannot find a doctor who is willing to perform chorionic villi testing. Any ideas why not? What are risks?

In brief: Top caliber maternal
Fetal centers especially those with medical school affiliations should either perform chorionic villus sampling or be able to refer you to a center that does.
There is a 1% risk of miscarriage & very minor risk of infection spotting pain or crampiing. Advantage over amniocentesis is that it can be performed earlier in pregnancy (10 -13 weeks after your last menstrual period).
