Finding the right medicine just got easier!
Are you frustrated because you have tried so many different combinations of medications and none seem to be the right fit for you or your loved one?
Dr. Zaidi and Nurse Practitioners Karbowski & Tropeano use GeneSight, which is a genetic test that helps healthcare providers take a personalized approach to prescribing medicine for patients. Because genes influence the way a person’s body responds to specific medications, they may not work the same for everyone. Using DNA gathered with a simple cheek swab, GeneSight analyzes a patient’s genes and provides individualized information to help healthcare providers select medications that better match their patient’s genes.
Multiple clinical studies have shown that when clinicians used GeneSight to help guide treatment decisions, patients were twice as likely to respond to the selected medication.
Plus, with treatment guided by GeneSight, patients saw a 70% greater improvement in their symptoms versus usual treatment
