A Fellow of the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology (FABNO), Dr. Kerievsky earned a doctor of naturopathic medicine degree as well as a certificate in acupuncture from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona. He is also a Diplomate of the American Academy of Pain Management.
Prior to joining Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA), Dr. Kerievsky spent 10 years as a naturopathic physician and licensed acupuncturist at Naturopathic Family Care in Phoenix. Before that, he spent several years at HealthSouth Valley of the Sun Rehabilitation Hospital in Peoria, Arizona and First Medical Plus Family Practice in Phoenix.
In March 2009, Dr. Kerievsky joined the naturopathic team at CTCA® Phoenix. “I felt this was the best opportunity for a naturopathic physician," says Dr, Kerievsky on why he joined CTCA. "I also have friends that work here who encouraged me to join. After meeting the staff, seeing the hospital, and learning more about CTCA and its Mother Standard® of care, I knew this was the place I wanted to be.”
Dr. Kerievsky notes that he appreciates the integration of a formal Naturopathic Medicine Program into the cancer care model. “CTCA integrates naturopathic medicine into its treatment model for all patients. At other hospitals or facilities, naturopathic medicine is usually only an option, or is not available at all.”
In addition, Dr. Kerievsky says he appreciates being able to work with clinicians from multiple disciplines to best serve the needs of patients. “I really enjoy the team approach to patient care. Working alongside all these talented healthcare providers makes coming to work at CTCA a very enjoyable experience.”
According to Dr. Kerievsky, what makes CTCA different from other hospitals is its patient-centered philosophy. “CTCA is the only hospital that I know of that has an integrative, compassionate model of care. CTCA really puts patients first delivering the Mother Standard® of care every day,” he says.
Patient ratings and comments
Star ratings and comments are only available for medical, radiation and gynecologic oncologists. Gynecologic surgical offerings are not included at this time due to a different survey tool required to evaluate these services. CTCA uses a validated Press Ganey® survey, which captures patient experience feedback for the primary oncology services of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
