Genetic Testing

We use a variety of genetic panels in an attempt to offer our patients the test that best fits their profile, but also their financial needs. We have been among the pioneers in the integration of novel clinical assessment tools in our practice, having started this journey over four years ago, inspired by the clinical work and results of Mayo Clinic. We work closely with professionals in the fields of genetics and pharmacology to deepen our understanding of applicability of these tests to the real life dilemmas we and our patients face every day. Here are some of the options we offer:

Pathway Genomics

Our practice offers nutrigenomic testing, looking at the connections between our nutritional health and genetic profiles. Results can indicate beneficial exercise patterns, appropriate diet patterns and can detect genetic predispositions to nutrient deficiencies to be addressed in session. Our registered dietitian meets one-on-one for personal interpretation of results and continued nutrition counseling.

Paramount Health offers two of Pathway Genomics’ genetic tests: PathwayFit and SkinFit. Focusing on nutritional and behavioral genetic testing, PathwayFit supplies suggestions for supplementation and lifestyle adjustments based on an individual’s genetic markers for metabolism, behaviors and dietary adjustments. SkinFit identifies genetic variants associated with various skin conditions including tanning response, rosacea, eczema, cellulite, wrinkles, and many more. Suggestions for appropriate products and lifestyle adjustments to improve skin health are supplied through the complete report.

Genomind

Through Genomind we offer a panel of genetic testing called the Genecept Assay. The Genecept Assay is a comprehensive saliva-based tool that allows our clinicians to see genetic markers specific to each individual patient. These markers are informative to how patients respond to different psychiatric treatments.

Genomind also offers a metabolic and lifestyle genetic test called MindfulDNA. Using evidenced-based research to improve health of patients based on the genetic variants, Mindful DNA employs diets, lifestyle changes and additional non-pharmaceutical methods to improve health status of patients.

Who is Genomind?

Genomind is a personalized medicine company, comprised of innovative researchers and expert leaders in psychiatry and neurology. At our core is a belief in the combined power of a caring clinician and scientific research. We work hard every day to bring science to psychiatry and to create new innovations that will help clinicians improve their patients’ lives.
