"Prairie offers a novel and innovative approach that uses genetic testing to help clients find the right psychiatric medications. The process is centered around pharmacogenetics, which uses genetic testing to determine how each person processes certain medications."
"One huge leg up that Prairie has on the competition is that free genetic testing that they provide their patients before the diagnostic process even begins. Different genes mean different responses to medication. So once you fill out the initial questionnaire, Prairie will ship a saliva-based DNA test to your house."
"Prairie Health sets a new standard as the only telemedicine company (we’ve seen at least) that leverages genetic testing to offer personalized anxiety and depression treatment. With Prairie, you’re more likely to find an effective medication to relieve your anxiety symptoms sooner"
"Prairie Health’s founders, fueled by personal experience with this phenomenon, decided to include saliva-based DNA testing for all of their members to help mitigate the risk of side effects. When it comes to our bodies and our mental health, we shouldn’t be “throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks,” so to speak. DNA testing helps to reduce the guesswork in psychiatric prescriptions."
"Bottom line - Prairie Health is the bomb! If you live anywhere in California, you would be doing yourself a disservice by not at the very least checking them out online. Once you get a feel for how they’re changing the scope of mental health and how much they actually care for the wellbeing of the human race, you’ll know they’re an excellent fit for you. "
"Patients offer Prairie Health a genetic sample, which is analyzed to work out how their body breaks down medication. This information takes the guesswork out of prescribing anxiety and depression medications, which is often a frustrating and costly process of trial and error."
