Pharmacogenomic PGx Profile Service

Have you ever wondered why some medications may not seem to help you as much as others?

Have you ever changed the dose or stopped taking a medication because you didn't think it worked for you or didn't like the way it made you feel?

Have you ever wanted to know how a medication may affect you before you take it?

These types of questions might be answered by Pharmacogenomics (PGx), which is, the study of how genes affect the body's response to medications. Emerging tools for PGx testing, also referred to as drug-gene testing, can guide your health care provider to tailor your medications based on your genes. This is key to personalizing your health care.
