Pathology/DiagnosticCOE Program

As nearly 30% of cancers are misdiagnosed, receiving the correct diagnosis and treatment plan from the start is critical.  You have access to the Pathology/DiagnosticCOE (Center of Excellence) for a second opinion, including affirmation of diagnosis, along with molecular and genetic testing, when appropriate.  These tests provide necessary information to determine the appropriate treatment plan, providing the best outcome possible.


How it Works: You can access the Pathology/DiagnosticCOE Program in two ways:

  1. Existing lab samples are sent to a COE for expert analysis and additional testing; this process takes approximately 5-14 days to complete a review
  2. Visit a COE to receive a complete evaluation and lab work for expert analysis and additional testing
