Genes are the body’s guidebook to functionality. Unfortunately, sometimes these genes have “mutations” that change the way your body works and puts you at risk for diseases. Genetic testing is done to find out if you have certain abnormal genes or mutations. Genetic tests look for specific mutations that are linked to various diseases.
Our offices partner with several labs that specialize in this type of testing. Your physician will take a thorough family history and can make recommendations on genetic testing according to your individual family history.
