Genomic testing is a critical component of determining how to treat a patient that has been diagnosed with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). Since certain treatments are more effective in treating tumors with specific mutations, molecular profiling of tumors (genomic testing) is beneficial in determining the best options for therapy.

Genomic testing involves identifying biomarkers called “driver mutations.” With NSCLC, identifying the driver mutation and then matching the drug accordingly is shown to result in increased treatment efficacy. Therefore, genomic testing has become the standard initial procedure for a patient with NSCLC.

We are committed to pursuing and implementing new technologies which lead to better results for our patients. Our goal is to not only provide patients with cutting-edge oncology therapies but also compassionate and personalized care. If you have received a diagnosis of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer and are interested in learning more about genomic testing, please call us to set up an appointment.

Request An AppointmentNew patient appointments require a physician to send a referral request on your behalf. The referring physician can be a specialist you saw who identified an oncology-related condition or your primary care physician
  • New patient: you have a medical condition that is or could be cancerous or a blood disorder
  • Transfer care: you are moving into the area and need an oncologist/hematologist, or you are currently under the care of a local oncologist/hematologist and would like to transfer care to one of our physicians
  • 2nd Opinion: you have been diagnosed with cancer or a blood disorder and would like to get a second opinion on the prognosis and treatment course
  • Former patient: if you have not been to the office in 3 years or more, you will need to get a referral sent in by a physician to re-establish care

Send the referral form to your physician to refer and ask them to send with the following items:
