About The Health & Wellness Center
The Health & Wellness Center (THWC), and our partners, provide advanced hereditary risk assessments and health solutions to both patients and providers through genetic testing.
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 cancer and rheumatoid arthritis).
And since genetics are hereditary, your test results may provide risk information for your family as well.

Frequently Asked Questions
These are risk assessments that read your 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 like cancer or immunodeficiency disorders.
You may have inherited genetic risks from your parents, and since your children share your DNA, your results may provide risk information for them as well.
Our Care Specialist’s will ask you a series of pre-qualification questions to determine eligibility. We review the information with your Primary Care Physician, and if they approve, the test will be delivered.
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 doctor who ordered the test will receive the results and can review them with you (including if genetic counseling is recommended).
The Hereditary Risk Assessments offered by The Health and Wellness Center may be covered with zero out of pocket costs to the patient, depending on individual insurance plans and coverage. Please have your information available when you speak to a Care Specialist.
