Biography

Scott Gettinger, MD, is a medical oncologist who specializes in lung cancer treatment and research. 

He says the best part of his job is the ability to provide the latest advances in treatment to his patients, many of whom have complicated cases and require care from multiple specialists. 

Dr. Gettinger leads several clinical trials evaluating novel therapies for patients with lung cancer. His primary interests include understanding mechanisms of sensitivity and resistance to molecularly targeted therapies and immunotherapies for non-small cell lung cancer.

“Treatment for lung cancer is constantly evolving and new treatments are available to target specific tumors,” he says. “There is always something we can offer that will help.”
