The staff of the Philadelphia Cancer Treatment Centers of America is pleased to welcome the doctor to his new staff. Bonilla believe in the center’s patient-centered holistic approach to cancer treatment. Instead of treating patients with a one-sized fits all approach. Each patient who comes into the facility can expect physical, emotional, spritual and nutritional support. Staff work with each patient to make sure he or she has the best treatment options.
“We are excited to welcome Dr. Bonilla to our team of skilled physicians and clinical care experts,” said Nancy Hesse when asked about the new research director’s appointment to the facility. The registered nurse’s opinion matches the opinion of many other staff in the facility.
The Cancer Treatment Centers of America works to develop new approaches to cancer. Its most recent efforts attempt to target the proteins created by the mutations that allow tumors to form. Researchers hope by targeting the mutations that cause specific cancers to form that they can develop new treatments.
