Dear Anu, thank YOU! I found the report hugely impressive, remarkably accurate about my overall health and very professionally and helpfully done. I would be happy to recommend your services to anyone interested.
Mapmygenome was quick and easy and allowed me to take a deeper look at the mystery of my genes. We are each unique and made up of a genetic code which can offer us insights into how to live a healthier, longer life.
Have gained huge insights on how to ward off any real health risks and also stop worrying about imaginary ones. Anyone who really wishes to take control of ones own health though superior knowledge and greater understanding of ones own health and condition must do the test. And now!!
I found the Genomepatri test to be very useful and recommend that everyone does it. It is Better to be prepared than be sorry in the future.
I have been fascinated by the whole science of genomics, and how it can be used to predict what kind of diseases, etc. one is susceptible to, through reading your genome. I had read about it in the context of 23andme (www.23andme.com) in the US.
When I learnt that www.mapmygenome.com was offering the same here, I was at once thrilled and circumspect. Thrilled, because I wanted to try it. Circumspect, because I was not sure if the same quality and technology would be available here. The test is deceptively simple. Just open the compact, well-designed kit, and you have a little glass tube with a ear-bud like swab.
Take a saliva swab from your mouth through the method prescribed; put it into the tube and repack the kit. Let mapmygenome know, and the courier boy arrives the same day to take the kit back. Super simple and super convenient. In a week or so, a detailed pdf report came into my inbox. Reasonably well presented and mostly simple to understand, the report scanned more than 100 conditions and flagged off 4-5 red flags for me. It also told me what diseases I had a lower probability of getting, and what I had higher probability of getting; compared to the general population.
It was a little disconcerting to see that I had higher probability of getting Alzheimer's, Lou Gehrig's disease, etc. but at least I knew, and forewarned is forearmed... The next day I got a mail from their genetic counsellor who scheduled a Skype call with me (part of the package). She walked me through the report, and explained what precautions I must take, and what I should tell my doctor the next time I went to see him. Helpful and instructive. Overall, it was a novel, simple and learning experience. Pros: Simple test, convenient logistics, detailed report, great counselling.

I am from the Wellness Industry and when Mapmygenome launched Genomepatri, I thought it would be interesting to try out and see how it could add value. I found the experience enjoyable including the spitting part. The report was very professional and detailed and I have taken steps towards prevention and wellness for my own health. The fact that there is a counseling session and the connect with doctors and wellness industry is much appreciated. I will be very happy to recommend this to anyone.
I tried the Genomepatri test as I was curious about the technology. I was impressed with the quality of report which was very detailed and accurate. The fact that Mapmygenome is integrating it with genetic counseling and expert doctors is what makes the model unique.
Thank you Anu for the GenomePatri. The service was brilliant, handling was professional and the insights very helpful. The depth and detail of the report really struck me. I would highly recommend this test to everyone. After your JanamPatri the most important thing to acquire is a GenomePatri !
Dear Anu, Thank you for my GenomePatri. While the report had reassured me about what I already knew about my health it also highlighted certain blind spots which otherwise I would have not known. I am glad that now I have a clear picture of my future health risks and at the same time, I also have a challenge on my hand to start managing them proactively to avoid any future problems. By the way, the report was very comprehensive and over all packaging was simply superb. I will definitely recommend GenomePatri to all my friends and family.
Thanks a ton Anu for my Genomepatri! I feel healthier and empowered with this report in hand. Deep insights including reaffirmation of traits and a surprise or two as well.
I am very impressed by the depth of the report and also the balanced way it has been presented.

I would recommend to others.

Have been quite useful. Some of it was expected but a few of them quite unexpected. It explained some of the experiences I have had with respect to diet sensitivities, susceptibility to certain diseases etc. It gave me a good idea of changes to the lifestyle required and the kind of diagnostic tests I need to focus on in the future.
Over all it was very good.

Genomepatri is a wonderful product from now, through my Genomepatri report I can lead a happy life. The service offered by Mapmygenome is Outstanding. I was amazed when I received the response through mail even on a holiday regarding the genetic. Counselling of my Genomepatri report.
Thanks a lot to everyone for your valuable services.
It was a really wonderful experience. The genetic counselor was just amazing in simplifying all the medical terms and making them relevant to us. She was patient, knowledgeable and very warm.
Thank you for this.
The entire process was smooth with periodic updates.

The session was very good, but would be best if increased at least for 2 hours so that full report can be explained and all the doubts can be cleared.
Excellent. The genetic counselling I received was very valuable.
I approached Mapmygenome through Apollo Hospitals Clinic in Anna Nagar. I am concerned with my weight gain and inability to control my hunger and diet. It took 23 days for the report to come after same collection, and it was within the TAT I was communicated. Since then, the counselling session was very good, interactive, informational and helped me to understand the report and the ways to change my lifestyle. The detailed secondary report and diet plan gives me a document and a thoroughly detailed plan to follow to a healthy body and lifestyle. I would like to thank Mapmygenome for answering all my queries and providing me with a solution that will help me long term.
I do not have a comparative product to benchmark one against the other, but the tests have certainly given me an insight into my own and my family's health issues to watch out for. Of course, only someone who is proactive about the health of their dear ones will opt for these tests in the first place. I have come back now more aware about the propensity of developing certain health conditions for each of us and the precautions to be taken thereof. Like they say - prevention is better than cure!
My overall experience has been excellent in terms of response time, proactivity patient hearing by the entire team starting with Dr Jaishree Srinivsan, Dr Pallavi Jain counselor Pooja Ramchandran. There was no sense of rush at all Pooja gave me enough time for all of us, and even worked out of office hours to accommodate us.
The fact that we can go back to them for a lifetime with any queries, and the assurance that they can pitch in and counsel our medical practitioner in case the need arises any time in the future is really comforting.
I would recommend this product whole heartedly to anyone who cares for their wellbeing.
But one word of caution:
I took almost two months before I read the recommendations and lifestyle changes that I needed to adopt.
One must be equally proactive in following the recommendations made by the counselor, to take optimum advantage of having the tests done.
The genetic counselling session was extremely helpful and thorough. Very reasonable precautions and life style changes were suggested. Overall a great experience!

Absolutely happy and proud to have made the decision to go for Mapmygenome. I now have greater awareness about my overall health and the genetic counselling after the report made me feel even more confident as to how to go about for a healthier future. Thank you!
Overall it was a novel experience, never before have I undergone a medical test with so much comfort. The executives were very good in guiding about the entire process. The session with the counselor was also very useful in clearing my queries.
Full value for money, effort and energy expended. Thank you all for a great learning experience. Courteous service cheerfully extended- I am grateful.
Very interesting experience, my first genome sequencing. It is good to focus on the health and preventive aspects.
I am delighted to have entered the space of personalised health consciousness so a big thanks to the whole team at Mapmygenome -- it is a rewarding journey and that is only after the first steps. Personally, I feel great acting on the red flags, making adjustments to my daily rhythms, nuts, green veg and goodbye gluten, biscuits and all. Appointments are made to review / replace two lines of medication with my Cardiologist, I am sure he will be delighted I am sharing my potential response to Aspirin and Statins, small steps however potentially big changes to come. Importantly I am being nudged into new relationships with the Ophthalmologist and Oncologist, this will be life changing. Family and friends are delighted I am taking personal health seriously if a little late, better now than never, “Dad’s being actively responsible”, I like that! Others I am sure will follow.
It is very good because we know the actual cause of weight gain
