by Raye L. Alford, PhD July 9, 2018 DEFEATING CANCER Knowledge Alone Is Not Enough by Philip A. Salem, MD Hardcover, 176 pages. Quartet Books. £15. I first met Dr. Philip Salem in October 2015. A mutual friend, Dr. Lois DeBakey, introduced us. She knew Dr. Salem wanted to publish a book for cancer patients that would relate, in a practical and accessible manner, what he has learned during his 50 years of experience in cancer medicine and research. Lois knew how difficult this mission had become for Dr. Salem because of the many demands on his time. She thought…

Doctor's Motto - ABC 13 - Feb 2013

When a doctor tells a cancer patient there is no cure, some of them may decide to not even start cancer treatment. But a respected Houston oncologist says that's wrong. Dr. Phillip Salem believes that no matter how advanced cancer is, everyone should try cancer treatment because sometimes dire predictions are proven wrong. And his belief has paid off at least two of his patients. "We were scared to death," Patsy Thomson said. Thomson was told she had chronic myelogenous leukemia, or CML, and the longest she could hope to live was five to seven years. "That was 19 and…

Dr. Salem’s InterviewMondanité Magazine Beirut, LebanonNovember 2009 "It would be impossible to know the true Philip Salem without appreciating the strength of his attachment to the land and the people of his birth. Indeed, throughout his life, the little village of Bterram where his life story began has remained his spiritual and emotional anchor. I can still remember when I traveled from Australia to meet with him one summer while he was visiting his family home in Bterram, he told me quite candidly that it was here, among the limestone houses and the olive and fig trees, that he was…
GUADALAJARA, JALISCO (10/JUN/2013).- En una hoja amarilla que extrae de su saco, como quien va a escribir una receta, el doctor Philip A. Salem dibuja una línea recta. Después, agrega medios círculos por debajo de esa línea, como si estuvieran colgando de ella. Ésa, afirma, es la vida del paciente con cáncer durante su tratamiento: un montón de situaciones que van a la baja, entre el funcionamiento del cuerpo y el aspecto anímico del afectado. Se olvida de la hoja amarilla y dice, mirando fijamente hacia el frente: ningún médico tiene el derecho de quitarle las esperanzas a un paciente…
