What our patients say

“I found Issels as a last resort. When I came here, I was a mess…and all of a sudden I started making leaps and bounds. In my last ultrasound my 12-cm tumor completely disappeared. And all the other tumors–my abdomen was basically full of them–were more than half reduced. ”
Nicole Tupper,
Adenocarcinoma of appendix

“Doctors and nurses go out of their way to address their patients’ every need and to provide help.”
Elaine Blumenkranz, Leiomyosarcoma

“My AFP Tumor marker was 4,500 and I was given 3 months to live. Within 3 weeks of Issels natural treatment it decreased to 124 and then to 65. Now one year later my doctors cannot believe how I am doing.”
Carl Swanberg, Hepatocellular Cancer, Liver Cirrhosis, Hepatitis C

“Dr. Issels is assisted by Dr. Walter Kim, MD and Dr. Walter Lewis MD. They aggressively treat the cancer and address the underlying causes. My PSA dropped from 12 to1.6 in 4 weeks. We learned a lot, it was a life-changing experience for me and my wife.”
Roderick Stephen, Prostate Cancer with bone metastases

Barbara Humphrey, Leukemia

“I was very very sick when I arrived at the Issels Medical Center, after 2 weeks I could walk again and within the 4 weeks my tumor marker dropped in half. It is an absolutely amazing wonderful place.”
