1. Your Thoughts Exactly: direct-to-consumer genetic tests

ACP Internist is assessing how often internists are asked by patients about direct-to-consumer genetic tests, and how they deal with the queries. Results are not scientific and do not constitute a clinical recommendation for or against their use. An aggregate of responses will be used in news coverage in an upcoming issue of ACP Internist.

* 1. How many times in your career has a patient asked you about direct-to-consumer (DTC) genetic testing?

* 2. Has a patient ever come to your office with DTC test results in hand, wanting to discuss them?

* 3. Would you be willing to be interviewed by a reporter from ACP Internist?
