Our Mission:

“Saving lives and improving care

The science now exists to protect you and your family from adverse reactions to prescription drugs.  Drugs you probably assume are safe.  After all, they are FDA approved.  But the reality is that millions of Americans have reactions serious enough to be hospitalized and over 128,000 die every year.

Parallel Testing gives you and your family access to a state of the art, painless Pharmacogenomic DNA test and a consumer-friendly report, explained by a certified expert physician.  You will learn how your individual DNA affects the safety and effectiveness of 100s of medicines.  Our expert physicians will also share your findings with all of your doctors so they all know what’s best for you.

And, you can do it without leaving your home.  We will send you a test swab and return envelope and when your results are ready you can do a video consult from your phone, tablet, or computer.
