Genetic Testing: A Professional’s Perspective

May 1, 2019

In the words of Dr. Dawn DeCarlo, “Inherited retinal diseases can be difficult to diagnose – especially in early stage – but genetic testing can help solidify a diagnosis. You might be wondering, ‘Why is this important, and do patients really need genetic testing if there’s no treatment currently available?

Genetic testing puts an end to the guessing. Being able to give your patients the resources to get genetically tested gives them disease education and peace of mind, and it also puts them on a path to being their own best advocate as new clinical trials become available.”
