PHARMACOGENETICS TESTING

A major contributor to an individual’s health is the genes they inherited from their parents. Through genomic testing, a variety of information can be determined about a person including how they will metabolize and respond to certain medications. Our services allow providers to personalize their treatments for each patient to improve outcomes and raise the standard of care.

Pharmacogenomics testing identifies specific differences within an individual’s DNA and how those differences affect their response to certain medications. This information allows a provider to determine the best match between a patient and their medications.

Benefits of PGx:

  • Reduced adverse drug events
  • Improves patient adherence to medication
