When it comes to providing the best possible care for your patients, making diagnoses and developing treatment plans, having access to accurate and credible information is critical. To treat your patients, you use information from their personal history, as well as symptoms that present to determine a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan. In addition, drug-gene testing, also called pharmacogenetics, is a relatively new tool that can be used to assist providers in making the best possible decisions for their patients. Drug-gene testing allows healthcare providers to more fully understand their patients by and make individualized medical decisions based on their unique genetic makeup. A person’s genes can help determine the best possible treatments, medications, and dosages for him. Texas Genetic Testing LLC partners with clinics, hospitals and other medical professionals in the Austin TX area to provide fast, accurate drug-gene testing to clinics, doctor’s offices and hospitals in Texas and around the country.
Benefits of Pharmacogenetics
In addition to arming health care providers with the most accurate and detailed information about their patients, drug-gene testing, or pharmacogenetics, offers many other benefits.
● Pharmacogenetics reduces adverse drug events. There is no longer any need for experimentation with medication as this drug gene testing gives you information about how your patient will respond to a prescribed drug.
● Lowers overall cost of care as multiple drugs are not needed for the same patient. Drug gene testing for a patient does not change over time, so a patient only needs to be tested for a specific medication one time.
● Accurate and timely: Texas Genetic Testing LLC can return accurate results to you within a matter of 32-48 hours, complete with a comprehensive report that is easy to understand and act upon. This will give you the information you need to prescribe medication in a reasonable period of time.
● Drug-gene testing is ideal for a wide variety of specialties including urologists, ob/gyns, neurologists, pain management specialists, psychiatrists, primary care providers, orthopedists and addiction specialists.
