About the Test

GeneSight by Assurex Health is a laboratory developed pharmacogenomic test that uses cutting edge technology to measure and analyze clinically important genomic variants in the treatment of psychiatric disorders. The results of the GeneSight report can help a clinician understand the way a patient’s unique genomic makeup may affect certain psychiatric medications. The analysis is based on pharmacogenomics, the study of genomic factors that influence an individual’s response to medication treatments, manufacturers’ FDA-approved drug labels, peer-reviewed scientific and clinical publications, and proven drug pharmacology. Quick turnaround time, combined with an individualized report of the patient’s genomic makeup, clinical experience, and other factors can provide information to help a physician make personalized medication treatment choices for each patient. In clinical use for more than 5 years, GeneSight has over 13,000 registered healthcare providers and over 230,000 patients have undergone GeneSight testing.

Multiple clinical studies show that when doctors use GeneSight to guide their treatment, patients are twice as likely to get on the right medication. Plus, with treatment guided by GeneSight, patients saw a 70% greater improvement in their symptoms versus usual treatment.*

Sample Patient Report

The Advanced TMS Center uses genetic testing to help determine which types of medications are likely going to help people who suffer from depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and other conditions. Genetic testing is a high-tech solution to an age-old problem: correctly matching psychiatric medications to symptoms.

As you probably know, you inherited genes from your parents that decide things like your eye color, hair and blood type. Genes can also determine how your body reacts to medications. People can have different reactions to the same medications because of gene variants.

The Best Genetic testing in Ladera Ranch - Mission Viejo, CA

These gene variants play a big part on how quickly or slowly medication moves through the body (drug metabolism). Genetic testing, also known as pharmacogenomics, helps our staff identify these variants and find the medications that will work best for you.

Genetic Testing can save patients months of trial and error with medications. The cost of medications (and weeks of suffering) can add up. Genetic testing can speed up the process and save patients money. Genetic testing is especially helpful for patients who have a history of medication resistance.

Genetic testing can help us determine if you need a higher or lower dose of a medication than the average person, and if there are medication side effects that other people (with similar genetics) have had.

If you do get genetic testing it would be a good idea to share your results with your family members because they share your genetic make-up. Your family members may have similar responses to medications as you do. By having genetic testing, you could be helping your loved ones.
