What our customers are saying
It was a very positive experience: clear instructions, quick response time. I love that the report is updated as new clinical guidelines become available. I have been telling everyone about Pillcheck!
How can one not consider doing a gene vs medication investigation like the one provided by Pillcheck? We learned many things about our son.
Thank you so much for this service. It’s going a long way in helping to manage my chronic pain condition. It’s a vital step in ensuring I’m as pain-free as possible while remaining as healthy as possible. I am impressed with the thorough feedback received.
Very thankful that this service exists. Often providers dismiss side effects leaving patients to suffer it out or search for answers on their own.
