Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Wade "I believe in the delivery of high-quality, patient and family focused, multidisciplinary clinical care spanning the period from diagnosis to end of life. Therapy must include a strong patient-physician partnership, the latest diagnostic techniques, access to innovative treatments, prevention and screening approaches, participation in IRB approved clinical trials, and a willingness by both the patient and the physician to discuss and consider alternative treatment options."

Patient Comments (1)
in Chicago, IL |
I am impressed with Dr Wade's knowledge of GVHD. He has been the only Doctor I have met which was able to treat it successfully. Since he has relocated from the mid west, I struggle to find another doctor who closely compares to him. I have visited hospitals such as University of Chicago only to meet doctors who believe more in theirselves than listening to their patients. Dr Wade is a fantastic Doctor who is greatly missed.
