Andrew Dickens


Dr. Andrew Dickens is a highly respected and esteemed practitioner in the field of integrative cancer care. With a strong educational background, he obtained his bachelor's degree from Washington and Lee University in 1976, followed by a B.Th. from The Way College of Biblical Research. For nearly two decades, Dr. Dickens and his wife compassionately led a non-denominational Bible fellowship in San Francisco, where he witnessed the pressing need for advanced treatment options among cancer patients.

Motivated by his genuine concern for patients, Dr. Dickens made a profound decision to further his expertise by attending the esteemed Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona. In 2008, he successfully graduated from the college, equipped with a comprehensive understanding of various disciplines crucial to cancer care. His extensive training encompasses anatomy, microbiology, botanical medicine, homeopathy, nutrition, acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), environmental medicine, physical medicine, and pharmacotherapy.

Driven by an unwavering commitment to excellence, Dr. Dickens has consistently pursued advanced knowledge and cutting-edge therapies to offer his patients the best possible care. At Dayspring Cancer Clinic, he tirelessly explores alternative treatment approaches, carefully evaluates their efficacy, and incorporates the most effective practices into his treatment protocols.

One distinguishing feature of Dayspring Cancer Clinic is our steadfast dedication to individualized care. Unlike clinics that employ standardized programs where patients receive similar treatments based on a predetermined schedule, we firmly believe in tailoring therapies to the unique needs of each individual. Dr. Dickens and his team recognize that every patient is distinct, both in their medical requirements and personal circumstances. As such, we provide tailored therapies designed specifically for each patient, taking into account their unique condition and circumstances.

Whether it involves prescribing off-label drugs, as elucidated by renowned author Jeffrey Dach MD in his groundbreaking book "Cracking Cancer Toolkit," for targeted cancer stem cell treatment or implementing innovative approaches such as pancreatic enzymes recommended by esteemed experts like Donald Kelly and Nicholas Gonzales MD, all our interventions are meticulously tailored to the individual needs of each patient.

At Dayspring Cancer Clinic, we firmly believe in the power of individuality. If you consider yourself a unique individual seeking exceptional care, rest assured that our clinic will provide you with personalized, comprehensive treatment to address your specific needs effectively.
