My father (and I) have been working with Dr. Hummel since March, 2023, when my father relocated from New York to Oregon. It has been an absolute pleasure being followed and guided by Dr. Hummel. He demonstrates a deep understanding of integrative modalities. This combined with a caring and attentive approach has led to improved health for my father, which is the number one metric. Whenever we have made requests of Dr. Hummel, he and his staff have been very responsive and they have helped us every step along the way. I especially appreciate Dr. Hummel's collaborative approach. He has collaborated with other health care providers, as well as ourselves, in tailoring a custom protocol, which gets updated regularly as new data presents itself. I feel truly supported and held by Dr. Hummel and the Mederi Clinic, as I help my father navigate his health and wellbeing at this advanced stage in his life. This relieves stress, knowing that we are not alone on this journey, and that there is a caring and attentive staff available at a moment's notice to help along the way. ~ Stefan Schachter

"I was given a diagnosis of multiple myeloma in November 2022. The protocol for treatment was radiation. Thanks to Dr. Hummel, I was able to go through radiation without loss of appetite and nausea. He created a protocol that helped me gain my strength because initially I was losing weight and very fatigued. Due to his extensive knowledge of the disease and experience with other patients who had a similar diagnosis, I found him to be very comforting during this time. I highly recommend the Mederi Center to anyone who gets a cancer diagnosis and wants to combine a holistic approach along with traditional medicine." ~ Vicki

“You are not a typical doctor, you are so much better! You are not a good doctor, you are a great doctor! You care, you listen, and you give us time. You know your stuff AND you are so down to earth and so much fun! We can’t thank you enough for all that you have done for us and all that you continue to do for us! We have come to think of you not just as our doctor, but also our friend."
~ D.H.

“Thank you for the care and compassion you have extended to my wife and I. I so appreciate your generosity in sharing your knowledge to benefit us, and the countless people you have cared for. It has been a pleasure to get to know you, and your passion to help people get well”. ~ S.
