Hereditary Risk Assessments – A Multi-Generational Approach to Medicine
Genetic testing can provide important medical insights about how your body metabolizes and reacts to different medications, as well as identifying predispositions to certain hereditary diseases (including cardiac related illnesses and cancer).
And since genetics are hereditary, these tests can also provide risk information for your family as well.

Frequently Asked Questions
A genetic risk assessment analyzes an individual’s DNA. Your genetic disposition can impact how your body responds and reacts to medications, as well as determine if you have an inherited risk of developing hereditary diseases (i.e. Cardiac Disease or Cancer).
Our Care Specialist’s will ask you a series of pre-qualification questions to determine eligibility. You will also speak to a licensed physician via telemedicine who will determine if there is a medical necessity, and if needed, order the test.
The Hereditary Risk Assessments offered by The Health & Wellness Center only require an oral swab from the inside of your cheeks and gums. These tests can be self-administered, and done from the comfort of your own home.
Once your test is completed, the Telemedicine service will contact you to review the results, and answer any questions you might have, including if genetic counseling is recommended.
Telemedicine allows healthcare providers to communicate with patients using technology such as phone or video chat instead of physically visiting a doctor’s office or hospital. Our Telehealth partners are board certified and licensed in your state.
Tests may be covered with zero out of pocket costs to the patient, however this may vary based on your individual insurance. Please have your information available when you speak to a Care Specialist.
