APO-E Gene Testing

We are very passionate about sharing this very important information about APOE Gene testing that we offer at our office.  If you have a family history of Alzheimers or Cardiovascular disease, we encourage you to take a proactive step in learning about this very important program.  Our personal experience has led us to a proactive approach that may help reduce many health risk factors.   Dr. Ellsworth’s wife Sue has three immediate family members with Alzheimers along with additional inherited Cardiovascular risk factors.  Meeting Pam McDonald and working with The Perfect Gene Diet has dramatically helped our family and many of our patients.  Our wish is to share our personal steps to help prevent disease and to help improve the quality of family, friends and loved ones everywhere.   APOE testing is now available in our office.
Call for future APOE seminar dates.
Anonymous Testing
Privacy is of utmost importance in genetic testing—so your results can never be used to deny you health insurance, long  term care insurance or employment. Our anonymous testing is done using a number rather than your name.
We offer two testing options. Both programs are based on ApoE gene testing:
1. A cheek cell swab test done by mail as part of our support program.   OR
2. A blood test drawn in our office.
