Why Do We Utilize Genetic Testing?
Genetic testing has become an important tool that helps elucidate interventions that compliment our plan of care. Although it is not a “fix all” for our problems, we have found that it is quite helpful and important. We’ve helped develop the Pure Genomics Web Application, available to you for free so the only expense to you for genetic testing is the initial cost for a 23andme.com test kit. Within 23andMe, patients can choose either the Ancestry Kit ($99) or the Health & Ancestry Kit ($199). Both kits provide the raw data required for PureGenomics to pull the researched, relevant and responsive SNP’s for Dr. Morris to personalize your care.
After completing your 23andMe genetic test, you will not need to do any more testing as your genome does not change. If you are coming into the office to discuss genetics, please notify the staff so a longer appointment can be arranged.
