The primary objective of the Immunotherapy Institute is to heal patients by treating the whole person – mind, body and spirit. We do this by adopting a patient-centered approach. Our patients are invited to take an active role in their treatment. While Dr. Ariel Perez is the head of our medical team, we like to say that the patient is the team leader.
Our patients have an active voice throughout the entire treatment process. One of the most valuable tools we have at our disposal is our listening and detective skills. We learn everything the patient has been through, what they know about their cancer, their lifestyle, what they eat and how they are living with cancer. We’re experts at getting to the bottom of each case, so we implore our patients to share as much of their experience with us as they can.
This approach is what sets us apart from conventional treatment. We don’t group our patients into categories. Conventional treatments often follow a protocol defined by the type and location of cancer. We do that, but we go much deeper in order to deliver a treatment program that is completely unique for each patient.
