Be confident that genetic testing is right for you.

Genetic testing is not for everyone. There’s little value in taking tests that don’t allow you to take action. Results also might cause undue stress both for you and for those around you.

At PartnerMD, your concierge doctor and a certified genetic counselor help make sure genetic testing is absolutely right for you.

Trust your results.

Many genetic tests remain unreliable or unproven. Through our partnership with VCU Health, your tests will be analyzed at CLIA-certified laboratories to ensure the highest quality. You’ll receive results you can trust to be accurate.

Discuss your results with a certified genetic counselor.

The goal of genetic testing should be to learn something you can act on. Your genetic testing at PartnerMD includes post-test advice from both your concierge doctor and a certified genetic counselor. This ensures you make the most of your results and can take steps to improve your health.

Why Is Genetic Counseling Important?

Benefits of genetic testing at PartnerMD.

Other medical practices and most of those “out of the box” DNA testing kits might offer a one-size-fits-all approach to genetic testing. That’s not how we do it at PartnerMD. Our customized approach gets you:

Pre-test conversations with your concierge doctor and a certified genetic counselor to determine if genetic testing is right for you.

Results you can trust to be accurate and secure through our partnership with VCU Health.

A focus on four critical areas — heart health, brain health, hereditary cancers, and pharmacogenomics, plus full exome mapping.

An emphasis on testing that will provide results you can act on to improve your health and mitigate future risks.

A safe, secure home for your genetic testing data thanks to VCU Health’s use of nonprofit and CLIA-certified labs.

Access to a certified genetics counselor who helps you make sense of your results and figure out what to do next.
