Partnering with you to help people live healthier lives

Managing patients who want to discuss their 23andMe experience with you
23andMe is more than just a genetic test. It is an engaging experience for people to learn about genetics in the context of carrier status*, ancestry, wellness and traits.
Help your patients plan for the future by finding out if they’re at risk of passing on an inherited condition.
Patients learn about genetic factors that may affect their well-being, helping them manage their lifestyle choices.
People can discover their ancestors, living relatives and geographical origins.
People have the opportunity to explore their personal attributes from food preferences to physical features.
The 23andMe experience is for people who are curious about their DNA. It is not intended to diagnose a disease or predict the risk of developing a disease in the future. 23andMe Carrier Status reports may, in certain cases, contain information that could provide you with valuable information for your patients’ clinical management.
