Product Consent

Mayo Clinic's primary value is “the needs of the patient come first.” This is equally important in our consumer products. That is why we have provided you with a full understanding of what you will need to consent to when you purchase Mayo Clinic GeneGuide™. We highly encourage you to read each policy.

MAYO CLINIC GENEGUIDE™ IS AN ONLINE GENETIC TESTING AND EDUCATION TOOL.

 

Mayo Clinic GeneGuide™ is not intended to diagnose health conditions or diseases, and should not be considered a substitute for health care provider visits. If you have specific concerns about your health, discuss them with a health care provider.

 

MAYO CLINIC GENEGUIDE™ DOES NOT PROVIDE COMPREHENSIVE GENETIC TESTING.

 

Mayo Clinic GeneGuide™ identifies common genetic changes associated with each condition the product covers. Each gene/variant/condition was carefully selected by our expert genetics team. Mayo Clinic GeneGuide™ does not evaluate the entire human genome. Therefore, this test does not eliminate the risk that you have variants for which Mayo Clinic GeneGuide™ does not test. 

 

MAYO CLINIC GENEGUIDE™ RESULTS MAY HAVE IMPLICATIONS FOR YOUR FAMILY.

 

Your results may have implications for your relatives, such as your parents, siblings and/or children.

 

YOU MAY BE CONTACTED BY A HEALTH CARE PROVIDER ASSOCIATED WITH MAYO CLINIC GENEGUIDE™.

 

As part of Mayo Clinic GeneGuide™ services, you may be contacted by PWNHealth, a health care provider associated with Mayo Clinic GeneGuide™, to discuss your family or medical history or discuss your results. However, it is expected that most individuals who use Mayo Clinic GeneGuide™ will not have additional contact with these providers.

 

HELIX WILL PROVIDE YOUR GENETIC INFORMATION TO MAYO CLINIC GENEGUIDE™.

 

Helix, as the testing laboratory, will provide your genetic information to Mayo Clinic GeneGuide™ for interpretation of your genetic results.

 

MAYO CLINIC DOES NOT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR HEALTH OUTCOMES.

 

Mayo Clinic GeneGuide™ is a tool that identifies genetic variants that may affect your health. It is not intended to replace a health care provider or create a relationship with any Mayo Clinic health care provider. You do not become a patient of Mayo Clinic when you use this product.

You should work with your health care provider to understand any recommendations you receive as a result of your use of Mayo Clinic GeneGuide™.
