What is genetic/DNA testing for the patient?
Since many patients react to prescription medicine differently, state of the art laboratory testing of your genetic profile can provide your doctor with a tailored approach customized to you.
Who can benefit?
Patients taking common medications such as:
- Warfarin (Coumadin)
- Beta blockers
Why is this important to you?
Physicians personalize treatment in several ways, and ensuring your prescription medicine is working properly is an important step in this process. Scientific research shows that genetic testing can improve patient care, and the FDA advises physicians to consider genetic testing for certain patients and medications.
How does it work?
It starts with a simple non-invasive cheek swab which is sent to a state of the art, CLIA certified molecular laboratory. Confidential results are sent to your physician who will then be able to tailor your treatment options.
Consult your physician with questions as they know your medical history better than anyone, and are best equipped to tailor your care and treatment appropriately.
