The GeneSight Psychotropic test is a genetic test that shows your provider how your genes may affect medication outcomes. The GeneSight test may reveal which medications to treat depression, anxiety, ADHD, and other mental health conditions require dose adjustments, be less likely to work, or have an increased risk of side effects based on your DNA. MTHFR gene testing is also available.
Nurse Practitioners with Affective Mental Wellness, LLC have graduated from an accredited university or college with a Masters or Doctoral Degree in Nursing and have received a designation of board certification from the ANCC.
