Personalized Genetic Testing provides a wide range of pharmacogenetics testing services, including Drug Metabolizing (DME) and genotyping testing. Examples of what patients can be tested for include:
PAIN MANAGEMENT DRUGS
Determine Risk of Vascular Disease
FACTOR II - FACTOR V LEIDEN
Determine Risk of Thrombosis
Determine risk factor for cardiovascular disease
Enzyme that degrades dopamine and norepinephrine
How Testing Works
Like any diagnostic screening, pharmacogenetic testing must be authorized by a doctor. If your doctor doesn’t currently offer testing, Personalized Genetic Testing will contact your doctor on your behalf or help you find a doctor who performs testing.
2. COLLECT DNA SAMPLE
Collecting a DNA sample for testing requires a simple, painless swab of the cheek. The sample is then sent to the lab for testing.
3. ANALYZE RESULTS
Our federally-certified lab extracts information about your DNA and cross-references it against an extensive database of medications. Results are typically sent to your doctor within two business days.
4. DETERMINE TREATMENT PLAN
A comprehensive report provides actionable guidance for each medication, including dosing guidance. You and your doctor can use this information to potentially avoid certain medications and tailor treatments.
5. TESTING AND INSURANCE
Medically necessary genetic testing is commonly covered by Medicare and most major insurers.
