Medical geneticists are medical doctors who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of genetic disorders, such as cystic fibrosis, sickle cell disease, and hemophilia. They treat patients with a family history of a disease that may be genetic and provide genetic counseling to people before they have children.
Medical geneticists can be board-certified through the Board of Medical Genetics, which is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
