To Better Diagnose & Treat Our Patients
Genetic testing can be used to evaluate a patient’s genetic code to look for the presence of subtle differences in certain genes that can influence the way a patient metabolizes medications. It also identifies differences that may be related to an individual patient’s likelihood of responding to certain classes of medications.
Knowing Your Genetic Profile can increase our ability to select a medication that is:
- More likely to be effective
- Less likely to cause side effects
We are now offering genetic testing, onsite in our outpatient offices. Covered by Medicare and most private insurance with a $35 office administration copay.
