Dr. Ebner, will be exploring genetic tests which are dedicated to helping healthcare providers utilize genetic information from their patients to personalize the medication selection process. These tests help providers determine the right medication for individual patients suffering from neuropsychiatric conditions including depression, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, acute and chronic pain, ADHD and other behavioral health conditions. Come to find out more about how these tests could help you or someone you know find the classes of medications that work more effectively for each person!.
