The genetic testing available at Family Foot & Ankle Specialists tests for ten different genes. It is used to determine how your body metabolizes certain chemeicals. Just because your husband can take a certain medication and it works great, the same may not be true for you, and vice versa. Genetic testing will benefit you because you will not be taking medications that do not work for you, or worse, that can actually be harming you! The test will show your doctor exactly what medications work for your specific body and which do not.
The genetic test available in our office is painless and only takes about 10 seconds. What's more exciting, most insurances cover this test 100%!
