Can I get Genetic Testing for Parkinson's Disease?

Genetic tests for Parkinson’s patients are often not covered by insurance or are instead not available at all. With Synapticure, however, you can meet with one of our expert genetic counselors and discuss your genetic risk factors for Parkinson’s disease and order genetic tests as appropriate.  After meeting with patients virtually, Synapticure can send testing kits directly to patients’ homes. Your saliva sample is then sent to a lab for a comprehensive panel that will analyze an appropriate set of genes. Counselors meet again with the patient to discuss the results and next steps.

Synapticure’s multidisciplinary team has been helping those living with Parkinson’s for decades and comprises expert movement disorders specialists, neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, social workers, nurses, and more. We can help facilitate diagnosis and our experts provide you with a personalized care plan to fit your unique journey with Parkinson’s that includes access to genetic testing and counseling, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language therapy, mental health support, clinical trials, and investigational therapies.
