A lifetime of prevention starts with one appointment.
We're redefining the routine checkup by analyzing your DNA to identify future health risks for you—and working to stop them before they begin. It all starts with an Advanced Primary Care appointment.See how we're transforming your healthcare.
Advanced Primary Care includes all traditional aspects of your primary care visit (e.g. overall health assessment, blood pressure, weight checks) and also incorporates a more detailed assessment of your genetic history.
Prior to your annual physical, you’ll have the opportunity to complete the Genetic and Wellness Assessment. This questionnaire asks you about your personal or family history of certain medical conditions. Based on your responses, your physician may recommend a referral to one of our Personalized Medicine clinics or recommend you have certain lab tests performed in order to find out additional information related your DNA. This information would then be used to create a customized care and treatment plan based on your unique genetic characteristics and health history.
