Genesight Testing

GeneSight® is an advanced genetic testing tool for mental health treatment recommendations. With this test, at Godaelli Psychiatric and Mental Health Center, your psychiatric provider determines exactly how your body responds to medication and which medication is best for your specific DNA makeup. GeneSight testing saves you a great deal of trial-and-error when it comes to getting the relief you need.

In a clinical study of the GeneSight psychotropic test, patients saw a 50% improvement in symptom relief when compared to patients who pursued a normal course of non-customized treatment.

What Kind of GeneSight® Testing is Available?

  • The psychotropic GeneSight® test measures your body’s reaction to medications for neuropsychiatric diseases such as depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, and bipolar disorder. It provides results for dozens of common neuropsychiatric medications, including Wellbutrin®, Xanax®, Prozac®, and Ambien®.


  • The ADHD test analyzes your body’s response to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) medications, which include both stimulants and non-stimulants. This test clearly shows which medications are more likely to cause side effects and which are more likely to be effective based on your unique DNA makeup.

How does GeneSight testing work?

GeneSight testing is quick and simple. You will simply swab the inside of your cheek to collect the DNA sample before sending it directly to the GeneSight clinical lab for analysis.

When will I get GeneSight results?

The GeneSight lab sends the test results to your Godaelli Psychiatric Center provider in less than 36 hours, and you’ll review the results with your provider. Your provider discusses your personalized treatment plan with you, and you can begin treatment right away.

What is the Cost?

Many commercial and government insurance plans reimburse for all or part of the cost of the GeneSight test. Schedule an appointment and ask your psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner for more details.
