Hereditary Risk Testing | A Multi-Generational Approach to Medicine
About The Health & Wellness Center
The Health & Wellness Center and our partners are committed to offering advanced hereditary risk assessments to both patients and providers across the United States.
From connecting patients to a network of trusted physicians and certified testing laboratories, to understanding the results that impact you and your family, THWC has created a modern and integrated approach to hereditary genetic testing.
These tests can provide important medical insights about how your body metabolizes and responds to different medications, as well as identifying predispositions to certain hereditary diseases including cancer.
And since genetics are hereditary, these tests can also provide risk information for your family as well.
