“What would happen if a physician were to begin speaking to a patient’s future potential rather than their past performance?” adds Colby. “Where the practice of medicine may fall short, a story is often found in our DNA that will provide clarity. Instead of waiting for sickness to occur, the clarity provided by a patient’s DNA can empower a Concierge physician to create a personalized plan for optimizing each patient’s health and longevity.”
Support For Broader Use of Limited Genetic Testing and Whole Genome Sequencing in Concierge Medicine
The accuracy of whole genome sequencing is quickly improving and the cost is quickly dropping. Within the next few years, this technology will be widely used by Concierge Physicians in the daily clinical care of their patients.
Genetics usually refers to the study of individual genes and their role in disease or inheritance. Genomics refers to an individual’s entire genomic make-up. Genomics looks at the genetic sequence of genes, and their structure and function as well as the interactions between genes. An easy way to think about genetic testing is to compare it to a book, because genetics is truly our Instruction Manual of Life and genetic testing is simply a way to proofread each person’s Instruction Manual for potential typos, according to Sequencing.com.
