Care Philosophy

While pain may be the "5th vital sign," I learned from my patients that suffering is the 6th vital sign. And that the primary cause of suffering is not physical pain, but is solitude. So I walk with you on your path from victim to survivor You want an accurate diagnosis and maximum tumor cell kill, but you also want to preserve your individuality. So my team and I offer you "stereoscopic oncology," keeping one eye focused sharply on evidenced-based medicine, but the other eye sensitive to your upside-down, topsy-turvy world due to your recent diagnosis of cancer. We do this by listening and explaining. By careful listening, we take into consideration your family and faith perspective, and your desire for individualization of your cancer treatment plan. By explaining options thoroughly, we confidently navigate you toward an integrated plan that is yours, through a maze of choices including targeting driving mutations, CDK 4/6 inhibitors, check point inhibitors, and clinical trials.Read more

Dr. Michael J. Magee, MD says

I am truly, truly, humbled, both by flattering compliments, and by your constructive words. My team and I try really hard to be there for you every minute of every day, and really appreciate your kindness in giving us a second chance when we have an off moment or an off day. I love all my patients, so sometimes an off moment or day occurs because of the weight of grieving the loss of health of one of you.

Hopefully my light for you is more often, if not always, bright than dim, for I believe our souls are nothing less than the kindness you and I share with others and each other, undimmed by anxiety, fear, dread, bitterness, rage, or grief. Love you, sister and brother! Love you!

Dr. Magee says...

Oncologists are both blessed and tasked.

I am blessed with the opportunity to stand beside my patients in their adversity, both learning from them, and being God's presence to them.

And I am tasked to see my patients with stereoscopic vision: One eye focused on an opportunity to bring all that medical science can bring to bear, the other eye focused on a vulnerable, suffering, fellow human being, worthy of all the compassion we can muster for our own mothers.

For oncologists, what we do and say each day may be, for some of us, just part of our calling and vocation. But for me, I realize that for you and each individual I behold in my office or hospital, what I do or say is part of the most important day of your life. While pain may be the "5th vital sign," I have learned from you my patients that suffering is the 6th vital sign. And that the primary cause of suffering is not physical pain, but is solitude. So I walk with you on your path from victim to survivor

You want an accurate diagnosis and maximum tumor cell kill, but you also want to preserve your individuality. So my team and I offer you "stereoscopic oncology," keeping one eye focused sharply on evidenced-based medicine, but the other eye sensitive to your upside-down, topsy-turvy world due to your recent diagnosis of cancer.

I "take care of business" by listening and explaining.

By careful listening, I take into consideration your family and faith perspective, and your desire for individualization of your cancer treatment plan.

By explaining options thoroughly, I confidently navigate you toward an integrated plan that is yours, through a maze of choices including targeting driving mutations, CDK 4/6 inhibitors, check point inhibitors, and clinical trials.

The obituary of one of my aquaintances a year ago, written by his daughter, said he would be remembered by the love his family had for him, his speaking career, and by his multiple medical specialty board certifications. My hope is instead I will be remembered for the love I have for my family, that I listen to my patients, and that I do my personal best for them.

Mike Magee, MD

He is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church USA, and preached every Sunday for four years while pastoring Brentwood First Presbyterian Church.
