- Meet Movement Disorder Society (MDS) Clinical Diagnostic Criteria for Parkinson's Disease: probable diagnosis. 2. Willingness to undergo genetic testing, and choose to be informed of genetic testing results for Glucosylceramidase Beta (GBA), LRRK2 and 5 additional PD related genes (SNCA, VPS35, PRKN, PINK-1, PARK7). 3. Capacity to give full informed consent in writing, and have read and signed the informed consent forms (ICFs) based on clinician's determination. 4. Able to perform study activities (including completion of either online, in-person or paper surveys). 5. Individuals must speak and understand the language of the informed consent.
- Diagnosis of an atypical parkinsonian disorder (i.e., multiple system atrophy, progressive supranuclear palsy, dementia with Lewy bodies, corticobasal syndrome), including that due to medications, metabolic disorders, encephalitis, cerebrovascular disease, or normal pressure hydrocephalus. 2. Individuals who have received a blood transfusion within the past 3 months. 3. Individuals who have active hematologic malignancies such as lymphoma or leukemia. 4. Individuals who have had a bone marrow transplant within the past 5 years.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate how offering Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certified genetic testing for Parkinson's Disease (PD) genes to people with Parkinson's Disease impacts clinical care and potential enrollment in clinical trials. This multi-center study will assess the impact and satisfaction of the mode of genetic counseling by comparing counseling conducted by a clinician versus centralized genetic counseling conducted through Indiana University. The study will also assess knowledge gained by administering a knowledge survey pre- and post-genetic testing. All genetic test results will be returned to participants through a genetic counseling visit.
