Prescribing the right medication, at the right dose, to the right patient is the goal of every physician. Pharmacogenomic information is an emerging tool that can be used to deliver precision medicine.

We also provide practical guidance on when to order pharmacogenomic testing, which test to order, and how to modify treatment based on published guidelines.
