Do you have a family history of breast cancer? Have you ever considered genetic testing for a BRCA mutation? Are you of Ashkenazi Jewish descent Or, do you just want to know?
I recently started working with Color Genomics, Inc. to test individuals for BRCA mutations. The test requires a small saliva sample, costs $249, and gives an extremely accurate genetic interpretation. No criteria are needed for testing, as it is an out-of-pocket expense. However, charges can be submitted to insurance if family history criteria are met.
If you have always wanted to know, here is your chance. Feel free to contact me with any questions, or to schedule a testing appointment.
