“It gave me an absolute piece of mind because we have certain cancers in our family that several people have. Cervical, breast, and especially colon [cancers] are my top concerns for me and my daughter. So, when this test was able to test for all of those things and knock all out as negative it helps me mentally big time for both myself and my daughter as well.”
- Valerie W.
“This is an important tool to fight cancer! I wish this test was available when my parents were alive because I have had two different types of cancer and to be able to obtain some genetic information has stabilized what I was aware of genetically. This information will be invaluable for my daughter and grandchildren!”
"No doubt about it this is an important preventative care tool, my wife was supposed to have her routine colonoscopy but we postponed it for 6 months and by that time her colon cancer had metastasized. If she would’ve taken this test sooner, she would have known she needed to be tested more frequently and more often, it would have saved her life. My own test is helping me to realize how important testing is. Another bonus is that now my kids know that they have a genetic risk [for cancer] from both of their bloodlines and that for them preventative care is a necessity .”
Our Genetics Lab
Apollo owns and operates a CAP and CLIA certified laboratory located on the Louisiana State University campus in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The lab specializes in next generation DNA genetic testing such as hereditary Cancer Genetic Screenings (CGX) and Pharmacogenetics Genetic Screening (PGX). These tests can help determine whether a person is at risk for life-threatening side effects or disease. This lab is one of only a few CAP and CLIA certified labs with next generation sequencing technology capabilities in the country and is licensed in 48 states.
Primary Care Physician
One of Apollo's core values is to ensure the candidates' primary care physician is always involved in the request for our genetic lab services. There are two ways that we can develop that relationship with the physician, both of which are inter-related.
Apollo currently has a Medicare number and in addition, is actively contracting with various state Medicaid programs and Medicare Advantage plans. Some commercial out of network plans are also accepted.
