Movement Disorders Genetics Clinic

Our Movement Genetics Clinic evaluates patients with early onset of a degenerative movement disorder or and those with a positive family history. This clinic runs on the second and fourth Thursdays of each month. Patients from the Multidisciplinary PAMSA clinic who have relevant family history, or an unusually early presentation are discussed in our BWH Movement Disorders genetics clinic and are seen by an expert genetics counselor Ms Tina Truong, as a well as a specialist physician. The physician co- directors of the clinic are Vik Khurana, Barbara Changizi and Claudio de Gusmao.  In the movement genetics appointment we will determine the need for additional genetic testing as clinically indicated. Those patients who do not achieve a diagnosis by clinical trial are advanced to a research protocol.

Referrals are made through the main Movement Disorders clinic (+1 617 732 7432), with attention to Ms Marie Etienne, the clinic coordinator.
