“Truly, it’s precision medicine.” Robert Dean, MD

Dr. Robert Dean began practicing with Tucson Ear, Nose & Throat, P.C. fourteen years ago. His special interests include pediatrics, endoscopic sinus surgery, allergy, sleep medicine and endocrinology. He recently sat down with us to explain the difference MicroGen DX’s DNA based diagnostic testing has made for him and his patients.

Immediately Dr. Dean explained how having better diagnostics has helped to provide confidence about what microbes are playing a role in the patient’s condition.

“Traditionally, when we’ve cultured patient’s paranasal sinuses,” Dr. Dean explained, “we found staph. We thought those were contaminants but now utilizing MicroGen DX and the molecular technology, when we actually are able to do those samples and send those off. We’re able to know that that’s actually a staph infection.”

Dr. Dean described how the more accurate data provided by the MicroGen DX testing has …

“It’s a win for me, it’s a win for the patient.” Lyle Haskell, D.P.M

Dr. Lyle Haskell has built a reputation over the past twenty five years as a compassionate, innovative and skilled provider in the fields of Podiatric Medicine and Foot & Ankle Surgery. In his effort to better care for his patients, Dr. Haskell tried MicroGen DX’s DNA based diagnostic testing and came to find that it benefitted both him and his patients enormously. He sat down with us to share his experience, and the drastic difference he has found between traditional cultures and MicroGen DX’s DNA based testing.

“Typical cultures and sensitivities could take a long period of time to do,” Dr. Haskell explained. “What’s nice about the DNA sequencing is, if we’re in a situation where we’re concerned, we can have the answers back in a few days.”…

“It’s inordinately valuable for patients.” Keith Matheny, MD

Keith Matheny, MD, is a published researcher in his field, the recipient of many awards, and has practiced medicine for fifteen years. As an ENT doctor, he knows the importance to having the right diagnostic information when choosing a treatment. Recently he took the time to share with us his experience in using MicroGen DX’s two part DNA test to help clear his patients’ infectious conditions.

“There are so many patients,” Dr. Matheny told us, “that come to me out of frustration having been treated chronically with 7, 10, 14 days of antibiotics. Many patients have been extremely grateful to have a much more precise diagnosis of the true pathogen and then being able to treat it appropriately with confidence that their is susceptibility for the bacteria. It’s extremely helpful in identifying potential gene resistance. We truly as clinicians have

“I feel proud that I can get this treatment to the patients.” Lisa Zambrano, NP

Nurse Practitioner Lisa Zambrano works for the Urology Clinics of North Texas, and she sat down with us to share the experiences she has had working with doctors who use MicroGen DX to diagnose infections. MicroGen DX uses a two part test to accurately and quickly identify the microbes in a sample using their DNA. After using cultures to diagnose infections for most of her career, just as anyone in the medical care field has done, Lisa Zambrano was not quick to simply take MicroGen DX’s word for it that they would make a difference in the care of patients.

“When it was introduced,” she told us, “I was skeptical because you just never know what you’re going to get with a new test, but when you think about all the DNA testing that’s going on, it made sense that …
