Speaking on Business: Bristol Health
Bristol Health is a completely medical clinic that uses specialized testing to match patients with the right mental health medication.
This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.
We have to be willing to have the tough conversations with those we love, especially when it concerns our children. And right now that means talking about mental health, with anxiety as the leading disorder and depression right behind it that are affecting kids at younger ages, some as a result of the pressures of our increasingly digital society. That’s why the work Drs. Frances Liu and Kelly Wosnik are doing with their medical practice, Bristol Health in Orem, so important and effective.
Up to this point, prescribing the right mental health medication can be trial and error to find best fit. With Bristol Health, Dr. Liu says they use pharmacogentic tests, through a simple cheek swab, to prescribe the right medication, based on a patient’s genetics. Because this method is so personalized for each patient, it’s why it’s effective, with a major percentage of their patients, including kids and adults, reporting they feel better within a couple months.
In one case, Bristol Health helped a patient who was on five different medications for depression and aggression and it dropped to one per day. The patient has seen a dramatic improvement in how they feel. Bristol Health also has nurse practioners and therapists on staff to offer complete medical care.
