Afraid you have early symptoms of Huntington’s Disease? Does a family member have obvious chorea or intellectual decline, but is reluctant to see a doctor? Are you making plans for your future and wonder if part of your decision-making process should include genetic testing? Do you think you need information or help, but the thought of actually contacting someone is a terrifying experience?
HD Reach is here to help you through that transition on the way to getting the answers you’re looking for. We will help you determine what concerns are most important, guide you through an appointment, and help you prepare for what to expect from the visit. We may have some tips about how to reduce the stress of the trip to the doctor for you and your loved one. Our goal is to help you know what to expect during that first, very important visit.
