A geneticist is someone who specializes in the science of genetics. This is a branch of biology that deals with the characteristics of different organisms, the development of such characteristics, and how these characteristics are passed on to their progeny. A geneticist will evaluate, diagnose, and manage patients with hereditary conditions or congenital malformations, and will also refer patients to other medical specialties.
