GeneSight Testing: Personalized Medication Management for Your Mental Health

Discover the World of Personalized Psychiatry with GeneSight Testing at MindBodyPinnacle Mental Health. We know how difficult it can be to find the perfect match with a psychiatric medication process of elimination. In The Psych Clinic, we provide GeneSight genetic testing, a state-of-the-art technology that identifies which anti-depressant and/or anti-psychotic medications are most likely to work well based on your genetic information.

What is GeneSight Testing?

GeneSight is a game-changer for precision medicine in psychiatry. This genetic test looks at how your DNA might influence how you respond to medicines commonly used to help treat depression, anxiety or ADHD. Through a simple cheek swab, GeneSight shows our experts the kind of medications that could work best for you, based on your DNA.

How Does It Work?

  • Easy and Non-Invasive: The process first begins with a simple cheek swab, which is a painless collection of your DNA that is taken at the office.

  • Genetic analysis: Your DNA sample is tested against a panel of drugs to show how your body may metabolize or respond to each one.

  • Customized prescription list: Few days after, we are presented with a report that lists several medication options that are grouped according to the level of risk of being harmful - utilize as intended, use cautiously and use greatest caution.

  • Intelligent Decision Making: As a result of this information, it allows for our experts to make decision based treatment plans that will cut down time and frustration of finding the right type of medication for you.

  • Less Trial and Error Due to GeneSight Testing: This testing provides insight into how your genetics could impact your response to frequently prescribed medications and remove most of the guesswork out of choosing medication.

  • Quicker Relief: The faster you determine the correct prescription medication for your particular symptoms, the sooner you will feel the relief.

  • Less Chance of Adverse Reactions: Fewer side effects are expected if the medications are tailored to your genetic makeup.

Peace of Mind - Confidence that your treatment plan is personalized to your unique genetics and extensive experience
