“MicroGen DX is absolutely a key part of our whole management strategy.” Jon Minter, DO

Doctor Jon Minter is an Orthopedic Surgeon who works in Atlanta, Georgia. His practice revolves primarily around joint replacement, hip and knee replacement. “I do a lot of revision surgery,” he told us, ” but also a lot of infection management, which is a big part of my practice.” He was kind enough to sit down with us and talk about his experience using MicroGen as a diagnostic tool

Dr. Minter began by revealing some of the difficulties faced from using traditional cultures. “Many of the patients are coming to us after having a number of misdiagnoses or antibiotic failures,” he told us, ” or frankly, they’re just looking for answers. Many times these patients are culture negative and that is a big problem in our practices in general orthopedics. We know they’re infected, we see they’re infected, but yet,

“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
