No patient ratings. Why not?
Why doesn't this doctor have a rating?

There is no publicly available rating for this medical professional for one of the following reasons:

  1. He or she is not employed by Penn Medicine.
  2. He or she does not see patients in a medical practice setting.
  3. He or she sees patients but has not yet received the minimum 30 patient satisfaction reviews in the past 12 months, ensuring that the rating is statistically reliable and a true reflection of patient satisfaction.

Meet Dr. Van Deerlin

My clinical expertise is in Molecular Pathology. The clinical laboratory I direct is a full service CLIA certified molecular pathology laboratory that encompasses testing in all areas including oncology (hematological and solid tumor), infectious diseases, genetics, hereditary and somatic pharmacogenetics, and identity testing. Currently we have a major emphasis on the development of oncology-based tests including somatic pharmacogenetics. Somatic pharmacogenetics represents somatic changes in tumors that make them more or less susceptible to therapeutic approaches. With the development of new targeted therapies, this type of molecular oncology testing is ever more critical for clinical management of patients. Other areas of growth include molecular infectious disease testing.

In addition, our Department and Lab sponsor a fellowship training program in Molecular Genetic Pathology to train the next generation of molecular laboratory directors and surgical pathologists with expertise in the integration of molecular technologies into the practice of pathology.
