Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Schlieve ""A journey of a thousand miles begins with but a single step."- Chinese proverb


Our Philosophy:

We believe in patient centered care and are committed to a holistic approach to patient treatment. We do not simply treat the disease, we treat the person affected by the disease. It involves treating the fear, confusion, anguish, and anger that may accompany a diagnosis. We believe that treatments must be delivered with understanding, kindness, compassion, and care.  In addition, we believe that patient education is a big part of your treatment plan.  It is our job to educate you on the specifics of your diagnosis, all treatment options, timeline, and expected outcomes.  In many cases, we may need to move forward with treatment quickly and tough decisions need to be made.  With your newly acquired knowledge, we will discuss your care plan and listen to your concerns while answering all of your questions. We are here to support you, educate you, guide you, and heal you.


We are committed to providing safe, quality, cutting-edge care to each of our patients.  It is impossible to deliver this high-level of care without spending a significant amount of time with our patients and their families.  Therefore, we are committed to giving every patient the time needed to answer questions, address concerns, and facilitate care. We will consult with international experts in pathology, dentistry, radiology, oncology, and plastic surgery to determine the optimum treatment approach.  "
