Robert J. Zieve, MD, is one of the most experienced and well-trained physicians in integrative medicine in the United States. He practices integrative cancer medicine in Prescott, AZ, at Innate Wellness and Medical Center. Soon he will be joining the staff at An Oasis of Healing in Mesa, AZ.
Dr. Zieve graduated from the Ohio State University College of Medicine. He has practiced holistic and integrative medicine for over thirty-five years, and worked for over twenty years as a Board-Certified specialist in emergency medicine and as the director of an emergency department at a small hospital. He has lectured to groups in both orthodox clinical and holistic medicine, both locally and nationally, for over twenty years. He has taught classes at the university level as well as at physician education forums. One of his teaching assignments was at the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, AZ.

Dr. Zieve is trained in many different medical disciplines, including homeopathy, nutrition, herbal, anthroposophical, and European biological medicine, as well as conventional allopathic and energy medicine. He is able to practice medicine in these diverse areas due to the extensive training he has received over the past twenty years. Examples of his extensive training include: a graduate course in homeopathy, a two-year physician course in anthroposophical medicine, training in nutritional medicine, ten years of ongoing study with Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, MD, of the American Academy of Neural Therapy; a two-year course with The Biological Medicine Foundation that included training with Dr. Rau at Paracelsus Klinik in Switzerland; two-year courses with Lee Cowden, MD, in Bioenergetic Medicine; extensive training with Gerard Geunoit, MD, the well-known French homeopathic physician; a two-year course called Clinical Herbal Medicine Training in Cancer Therapy with Donald J.

As an integrative medicine doctor who focuses on cancer, Dr. Zieve takes on different roles with his patients. Sometimes, he’s their primary care physician who treats their cancers, and at other times, he’s their primary care physician who works in collaboration with their oncologists. At other times, he is the consulting physician to their primary care doctors.
