Good care means far more than giving good treatment. It means that you attend to the patient as a person; you attend to fears, concerns, and images of death, dying and pain. Good care also demands continuity of care. Therefore, patients need to be seen on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Cancer patients cannot afford to have different doctors every few weeks because this will certainly cause a lot of turbulence in the continuity and quality of care.
Dr. Philip Salem and Salem Oncology Center provide a real option for patients who previously had no options. In fact, three of four patients who were considered terminal at leading cancer centers achieved a complete response on our treatment. Therefore, medical oncologists who feel that their patients have no known options, may wish to try the ICTriplexSM program.
Insurance companies and third-party payers routinely interfere with the delivery of medical care frequently due to financial parameters. While the objective of our Center is to cure the patient, the main objective of insurance companies, historically, is to minimize costs all too often to the detriment of the patient. In diseases other than cancer, the difference between care which is insurance reimbursable and care which is independent of third-party payers could be the difference between excellent care and poor-quality care. But in cancer, the difference could be between life and death. What differentiates our Center is that we provide both medicine and care far beyond standard norms to achieve a cure. Therefore, we do not accept any restrictions or impediments to the delivery of the very best medical care. Accordingly, we do not accept insurance or third-party payers.Read Article
In cancer therapy, there is never only one expert; therefore, before we treat any patient, we consult with a group of experts. This ensures that the patient will receive the most up-to-date and the most effective treatment. We do not only consult with the best specialists in the Texas Medical Center; we also consult with national and international experts.Colleagues
