Learn about this doctor

Dr. Zhang's Care Philosophy

Integrative Cancer Treatment Center(ICTC) accepts the premise that cancer is a disease that exhibits remarkable complexity at the molecular and systems levels, affecting the immune system and metabolism. Therefore, treating cancer requires equally complex procedures, and curing cancer will require the use of multiple drugs, administered in combination. A drug cocktail consisting of approximately four drugs, or more, is estimated for mounting a systematic assault on the whole range of cancer phenotypes to achieve meaningful cure. At ICTC, we provide service of exceptionally high quality in a warm setting. We are pleased to offer specialized services, including tailored and personalized cancer treatments with a whole-person approach, medical acupuncture, and hyperthermia therapy.
