Genetic Testing for Coronary Disease

Genetic testing is used for at least three purposes:

•  To determine your risk for a common disease, such as heart attack

•  To know whether you have a gene variant that virtually assures you will develop a rare inherited disease

•  to determine your response to, or side effects from, a particular drug

The advance knowledge you will develop heart disease and the decisions you face when you acquire this knowledge allow us to help you as part of a comprehensive prevention and treatment plan.
