High-Quality Genomic Testing
Physicians may elect to order clinical genome sequencing for patients whose clinical presentations have defied diagnosis, or for whom a diagnosis doesn’t completely “fit” the symptoms or manifestation of the disease, and for which the cause appears genetic in origin. These patients will typically have seen a number of specialists and current therapies are unsuccessful in alleviating symptoms or providing a significant improvement in health. Patients also may have undergone a series of tests, often including testing of specific genes, prior to being a good candidate. Patients with a reliable and confirmed diagnosis will not be good candidates.
