Huntington's Disease Program Services

Evaluation and Treatment Plan

Evaluations are provided free of charge (excluding laboratory tests and/or radiological studies) and consist of a visit with our neuropsychiatrist, clinical therapist, adult nurse practitioner and neuropsychologist. In addition, a visit with our genetic counselor can be arranged for those individuals interested in pre-symptomatic testing. When assessments are completed, a multidisciplinary treatment plan is created. The treatment plan may make recommendations for further treatment regarding personal/family counseling, medical treatments, home-based and/or long term care issues. Typically, patients who are gene positive are seen on a routine basis for follow-up. Medical care unrelated to Huntington's disease is not provided by the clinic.
