Care Philosophy

Trained at the National Institutes of Health National Cancer Institute, Dr. Rudolph Willis brings extensive experience in oncology research to his patients. But he certainly doesn t expect things to stay the same.

I am convinced that the way we treat cancer today is not going to be the way we treat cancer in the next 10 or 15 years. I think we re going to be in a position where we re going to be forced to pay attention to other factors that affect outcomes for patients.

Having observed numerous patients during his training and career, Dr. Willis is a firm believer that treating cancer is about more than a chemotherapy regimen.

It was clear to me that there is more to this. It has to do with other factors. It has to do with this mind/body connect. It has to do with the immune system. It has to do with a host of other things.

The commitment to exploring other factors, such as the mind-body connection or spirituality, and applying their power to impact treatment is one of the things that drew Dr. Willis to Cancer Treatment Centers of America. At CTCA, Dr. Willis feels he is able to choose novel approaches that are at the forefront of managing cancer.

For Dr. Willis, what it boils down to is a commitment to delivering the best treatment possible and fulfilling the promise to provide the Mother Standard of care.

I think that s what the Mother Standard is really implying, to make sure that we take care of that person like we would want to be taken care of.
