Diagnostic and Laboratory Testing
Wellsprings offers a full array of on-site diagnostic and lab services. Laboratory and Diagnostic Testing is part of the patient care pathway that identifies patient illness and leads to identifying the proper treatments.
Diagnostic Testing also allows our Practitioners to identify if and how well treatments are working.
In addition, Wellsprings also offers Genetic Psychotropic Testing (with GeneSight® Testing) see below for additional information.
Genetic Psychotropic Testing
What is Genetic Psychotropic Testing (also known as pharmacogenomics)?
This testing characterizes the study of how your genes affect your body's response to medications. Your body has thousands of genes that you inherited from your parents. Genes determine which characteristics you have, such as eye color and blood type. Some genes are responsible for how your body processes medications. Pharmacogenomic tests look for changes or variants in these genes that may determine whether a medication could be an effective treatment for you or whether you could have side effects to a specific medication.
Pharmacogenomic testing is one tool that can help your health care provider determine the best medication for you. Your health care provider also considers other factors such as your age, lifestyle, other medications you are taking and your overall health when choosing the right treatment for you.
Wellsprings is able to offer Genetic Psychotropic Testing by partnering with GeneSight® . For additional information on GeneSight®, please visit their website.
