Robert Zieve, MD, MDH

I have been a physician for over 40 years, ​beginning with a career as a Board-certified physician and director in emergency medicine, with an integrative medicine practice on the side, then a focus on integrative family practice; and for the past 20 years, my focus has been integrative cancer medicine.

Since 2008, I have been a participating physician at several integrative cancer clinics in the Phoenix area. I was an instructor at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ in the 1990’s, and was President of the Arizona Homeopathic and Integrative Medical Association for two terms in the late 1990’s. I continue to be a licensed homeopathic physician in Arizona. From 1999-2001 I was Medical Director of Paracelsus Fox Hollow Clinic near Louisville, KY, which was the US affiliate of Paracelsus Klinik, an internationally known cancer clinic in Lustmuhle, Switzerland. Since then, I have run private practices in Arizona and in Boulder, Colorado.  I am one of a small number of physicians in the United States with training and experience to prescribe mistletoe as a cancer treatment.

Finally, I have arrived at the kind of place where I have always wanted to work: An Oasis of Healing, where everyone with whom I work is single-mindedly focused on doing their very best to meet people’s needs. I have the honor of working with two very bright and devoted naturopathic physicians, under the guidance and collaborative spirit of the Center’s founder and director Dr. Thomas Lodi, M.D, who just like an orchestra conductor, has assembled under one roof a wide array of professionals, administrators, supportive staff, and effective therapies in cancer.  It is truly magical to be working in this environment at our Center.
