The genetic revolution has already begun, and it is having far-reaching effects  on healthcare right now. We have already taken the first leaps forward and, yes,  you can benefit from it today.           -Brandon Colby, MD

dr. bradon colby, author of outsmart your genesPrepare to be empowered to
change your destiny. Dr. Colby will
show you how.

Brandon Colby, MD, is a world leader in the field of Predictive Medicine, a groundbreaking medical specialty that combines comprehensive genetic testing with personalized prevention based upon your genes. The primary goal of Predictive Medicine isn’t just to alert you to diseases you are predisposed to but also to empower you to fight back and protect yourself against those diseases before they even manifest.

By using a person’s genes to predict the diseases for which they are at risk throughout their life, Dr. Colby is able to provide preventive measures that have been shown to reduce those risks. Because of this, Predictive Medicine changes the medical paradigm from being generic, reactionary, and defensive (waiting for disease to occur, then diagnosing and attempting to treat it) to being fully personalized, proactive, and finally going on the offensive against disease (detecting disease predispositions years or even decades before the disease occurs and instituting preventive measures that will either prevent it or significantly minimize its impact should it ever occur).

Dr. Colby has been involved in the genetics field for his entire life, first as a patient, then as a researcher, and now as a practicing physician. He has conducted extensive research in the field of advanced clinical genetic analysis, inventing numerous patent-pending technologies that make comprehensive genetic screening understandable, useful, and empowering to both the physician and the patient. Dr. Colby is also the only practicing physician in the world to have designed a first-of-its-kind DNA Chip. This DNA Chip allows him not only to assess a person's risk for hundreds of diseases and traits at a single time at relatively low cost but also to concurrently provide genetically tailored preventive recommendations to fight against those diseases to which the person is found to be predisposed.

In addition to serving as the Medical Director of Existence Health, a predictive medicine private practice based in Los Angeles, Dr. Colby is also the founder and CEO of Existence Genetics, a company that provides highly advanced predictive medicine services to the health care industry. He holds a degree in Genetics from the University of Michigan Honors Program, an MD from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and an MBA from Stanford University's Graduate School of Business.

Dr. Colby is an Affiliate Specialist of the American College of Medical Genetics
(ACMG), an Associate of the American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM), and a member of the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG), the American Medical Association (AMA), and the National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC).
