Schedule your psychiatry appointment and get a free genetic test for personalized depression and anxiety treatment.
Pharmacogenomics (also called pharmacogenetics or PGx) is the study of how your genes affect your body's response to medication. Your genes play a direct role in how your body metabolizes medications, including psychiatric medications like antidepressants.
Each individual is offered a saliva-based genetic test before their first appointment because it leads to better outcomes on average for people with depression or anxiety.
DNA testing highlights some of the medications that may cause bad reactions. Doctors use this to make a more informed prescription.
DNA testing reduces the risk of adverse drug reactions like weight gain, nausea and loss of libido.
Expect fewer side effects when genetics informs your care.
There's still hope! Your genetics can help you find a better treatment plan.
Move forward with confidence knowing you and your provider can make more informed medication decisions.
After completing your intake, receive a saliva-based genetic testing kit as part of your welcome box.
Collect a swab sample and ship it to our lab for processing. Your report will be ready in 5 to 10 business days.
Review your results with your doctor and build a treatment plan personalized to your body.
Make informed dosing decisions

Spoiler alert: these genes all relate to how your body processes and responds to medication, rather than any genes related to family history or health conditions.
