Specialty Testing

The Kelly Goodman Group medical practice strives to be a “one-stop” healthcare provider for its’ patients. In an effort to go above and beyond for our patients, we have partnered with the following specialty laboratories. These tests are not included in the standard physical exam. Your provider may recommend them at their discretion. Please speak with your provider if you are interested in any of these tests.

AVISE Testing

AVISE testing screens two tubes of blood for autoimmune markers which helps to diagnose complex diseases including lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. Many of these disorders have vague, non-specific symptoms, which makes diagnosing and differentiating them difficult. AVISE testing can help diagnose autoimmune thyroid disease, fibromyalgia, Sjorgren’s, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Insurance accepted, patient responsibility is dependent upon the individual plan and coverage.

Color Genetic Testing

Color testing is an easy, non-invasive, saliva test. Color uses saliva to screen for 30 different genes, including BRCA1 and BRCA2, which can increase a patient’s risk for various cancers. These cancers include breast, ovarian, colon, melanoma, stomach, pancreatic, uterine, and prostate.

Insurance is NOT accepted.

Cologuard

Cologuard is an easy, non-invasive way for patients over the age of 50 to screen for colon cancer. The test kit is sent to your home with a pre-addressed return UPS label. All patients need to do is provide a stool sample – no bowel prep needed! This test is not recommended for high risk individuals who have a strong family history of colon cancer or who have had colon cancer themselves.

Insurance accepted, patient responsibility is dependent upon the individual plan and coverage.

Genomind

Genomind is an easy, non-invasive saliva, genetic testing which is used to determine medication therapy based on a patient’s ability to metabolize drugs. The results provide evidence-based recommendations for treatment of various psychiatric diseases. Patients who had been diagnosed with depression, anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder, autism, schizophrenia, and other mental illnesses would benefit from this test.
