We offer Genomind testing
What is it?
A quick, painless cheek swab is completed in the office and sent out to a lab to test your genetic make-up. The lab identifies which medications are the most effective given your specific metabolic profile.
Within 2 weeks, the results come back to your provider to review with you at your next appointment.
This information can help guide your treatment plan so you can feel better faster.
Which medications does the genetic test look at?
Medications for various psychiatric disorders, including depression, anxiety, sleep disorders. mood disorders and schizophrenia, as well as medications used to treat ADHD, acute and chronic pain and folate deficiency.
