23andme were/are ahead on this. Like your doctor they us a survey to ask question about your health and family health history. This consisted of 100s of questions you could fill out. Using your DNA and survey results they put together your health history. They constantly update your history with new surveys. Many using 23andme never do the survey since it has so many questions. My results from 10 years ago did not surprise me and fit my health profile.
What all of these cannot do is analyze your environment both where you live and the type of work you do. These will also affect your health.
