We’re making remarkable progress in the fight against cancer by offering the most advanced treatments, targeted therapies and a robust clinical trial program, one of the most active in Georgia.

Your life is at the center of our care.

Being diagnosed with cancer is life-altering and never easy. The promising news is that more patients are living a prolonged life with cancer or living years, even decades, cancer-free.

Although we are cancer experts, the answer to the question “Why me?” is not well understood. We don’t completely understand why some people develop cancer and others don’t, but we do know environmental and genetic factors play a role.

The questions we answer with confidence and expertise is “What now?”  At NGOC, we fight cancer with:

  • The most advanced treatments and cutting-edge clinical trials available close to home
  • A personalized treatment plan administered by physicians fiercely committed to you and the best clinical outcome possible
  • The support and encouragement of a medical team devoted to fighting for you with compassion and patient-centered care


Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by abnormal, uncontrolled cell growth in the body.   It develops into a malignant, or cancerous, lump, mass or tumor that can spread or metastasize throughout the body via the circulatory or lymphatic systems.   Some cancers involving the blood and blood-forming organs don’t form tumors but circulate through other tissues where they grow.
