Genetic Testing


Genetic testing is a simple, fast, and painless procedure Dr. Segal can use to personalize your medication regimen if clinically applicable. Genetic testing may also provide additional data to help in determining the appropriate medication choice for a patient in certain cases. Dr. Segal will walk you through the process and will administer the test in his office as well as explain all of the clinical relevant findings once the results have been obtained. The actual testing process is quite simple and only involves a swab of the cheek or mouth rinse. This test may provide more rapid, targeted, and effective diagnostic and treatment outcomes by determining how an individual metabolizes and processes specific medications.  With careful analysis, the test can identify genetic markers that help predict how certain medications are likely to affect you by gaining a deeper understanding about how your body metabolizes medication and how specific medications work on your body.  Dr. Segal will describe the treatment options most likely to be compatible with your genetic makeup, and together you will agree upon your personalized medicine plan to accelerate positive treatment outcomes.
