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?
