Why do we need a clinical geneticist?
You will need to see a clinical geneticist if your child is diagnosed with any rare/genetic disorder or needs diagnosis. A geneticist can help in identification and testing for a diagnosis. A clinical geneticist will also advise you on DNA mapping and genotyping for your family. You will see a clinical geneticist especially if you are planning a second child and need to get prenatal testing.
