With any emerging field there are bound to be questions. Here are some we get asked frequently.

​What are the benefits of ordering Veritas' myGenome for my patients?

There are many benefits to whole genome sequencing (WGS) for you and your patients. Overall, a whole genome sequence for a patient will help you better predict their risk for disease while understanding the underlying genetic etiology of existing conditions. Having a patient's whole genome sequenced also means that their genome is available for re-examination at any point without having to repeat the lab test. Finally, your patient's pharmacogenomics (PGx) report will help you understand genetically-influenced response to over 200 medications.

​How can WGS be helpful in diagnosis?

​How can WGS be helpful in diagnosis?

Veritas’ myGenome is not a diagnostic test; it is an elective screening test for healthy individuals. myGenome uses Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) technology to identify sequence variants and is unable to detect other genetic variations such as large rearrangements, large deletions/duplications, translocations, and trinucleotide repeats. If you would like to use the information from the myGenome test for purposes other than screening, we encourage you to speak with a member of our clinical team. We are happy to help with referrals to appropriate genetic healthcare professionals if further genetic evaluation and/or testing is indicated.

I'm extremely busy. Is this complicated?

Although the science behind whole genome sequencing is complex, we deliver the information to you and your patients in a clear, concise and convenient manner. Access the reports through our physicians' portal, and our team and partners — including genetic counselors and Pharm. D.s — are standing by to assist you.

Is genetic counseling offered with your service?​

Physician Landing Q4 Popup

Is genetic counseling offered with your service?​

Yes. We have certified and licensed genetic counselors available to provide genetic consultations for patients in the U.S. (and in limited other countries). Depending on your circumstances, pre and post-test genetic counseling can be offered either by your own institution or by us. A 20-minute post-test genetic counseling session is included in the price of myGenome if a clinically relevant finding is reported (American College of Medical Genetics - ACMG59 or certain APOE variants). Additional genetic counseling packages, which may include comprehensive post-test review of report along with full family history assessment, or pre-test genetic counseling sessions, are available for an additional fee.

"We are given one life to live. myGenome gives us the opportunity to be proactive and make decisions to optimize our lives, avoid disease and, hopefully, achieve longevity. Some important insights may come from our own genome. I would NOT want to be the guy who could have done something about it, but didn't."
