The details of your telehealth interaction, which may include oral, visual, and electronic communications between you and your HD Genetics provider, will NOT become part of your medical records.
Under certain circumstances, telehealth may not be as appropriate as face-to-face interaction, and your HD Genetics genetic provider may refer you to a local Huntington’s disease specialist for follow-up or additional care.
In some cases a genetic counseling student/trainee (“Trainee”) may participate in your telehealth appointments. You will be informed if a Trainee is participating in your appointment. Trainees will be supervised by your Provider, and your Provider will be present during your entire consultation. However, you may request at any time that the Trainee not participate in your consultation.
The Information provided by HD Genetics is not intended to replace the medical advice and recommendations of your existing healthcare team. If you have non-genetic concerns about a current health condition, you should consult your local healthcare provider.
