Envita Medical Center is a Center of Excellence practicing precision medicine for late-stage cancer and chronic disease.
Envita is the result of two decades of research, development, and innovation in the field of precision medicine allowing us to provide the most effective conventional care in combination with the latest in research-based alternative intravenous medicine.
Over the last 20 years, Envita Medical Center has experienced explosive technological growth becoming a multidimensional medical company with over 150 employees. Each patient is treated as “N of 1”, meaning treatment is designed with precision integrative oncology, non-invasive interventional oncology surgical techniques, and treatment design that involves extensive testing and custom drug design and delivery specific to the patient’s needs.
Genetics, immunoreactivity, metabolism, mutational rate, genomics, and epigenetic alterations contribute greatly to the growth and development of cancers. These important factors are generally disregarded in individualized detail when pursuing standard oncology or "alternative medicine", if they are addressed, they are not at the level of precision that Envita deplores.
Deep clinical testing and phenotyping, combined with advanced molecular profiling, metabolic analysis, and immuno-profiling enable the construction of a custom precision treatment designed for each patient using advanced testing and Envita’s algorithms. Algorithms that have been developed over the last 20 years of clinical practice of advanced integrative personalized oncology.
How to Establish as a Patient
Before treatment can begin, detailed testing, analysis, imaging, and an in-person doctor consultation is required to establish potential treatment options and to see if a patient is a candidate for our care. After the consultation, further lab tests are conducted and imaging. While the Envita algorithm is completed using lab results, imaging, tumor molecular profiles (about 2-3 weeks), patients receive supportive treatments to build-up the body and prepare it for advanced targeted treatment.
The individualized protocol integrates the most modern and effective conventional care with the latest in advanced research-based integrative options to help patients. Much of our care is delivered via infusion care.
Envita does not provide housing for patients receiving care at the facility. Envita works with local realtors and hotels in the area to provide reduced rates for patients needing extended-stay options.
Evita's price for the Cancer Program starts at about $120,000. The price can vary greatly depending on the stage of cancer and additional complications related to the disease.
The price includes:
12-14 weeks (about 3 months) of treatment 5 days a week (2-5 hours a day)
The price does not include:
Envita Cost range for the Lyme program is ~$50-,000-$85,000
The price includes:
8-12 weeks of treatment
5 days a week (2-5 hours a day)
The price does not include:
Initial physician consultation 2-3 hours, $450
Labs, imaging, and testing including epigenetics and the immune system. Samples are collected through blood and urine samples - $5,000-$8,000.
The expense information listed above is a ball-park figure and is not an actual quote. You will not receive a quote for your protocol until Envita’s physicians have a chance to review all medical records and laboratory findings to establish your patient-specific protocol. Because cancer is a constantly evolving diagnosis the length of stay and price can and will change throughout treatment as the condition is addressed.

I'm very thankful for everyone at Envita who helped me successfully beat neuroendocrine carcinoma.When I arrived at Envita, I had a very large, aggressive, fast-growing tumor in my lower abdomen. I was so weak I needed a wheelchair, and could hardly talk. When a surgeon was unable to remove the "live" tumor, Danielle (one of my patient care coordinators) prayed with me. I liked that. And my Envita doctors (Dr. Coffin and Dr. Quart) did not give up on me, but worked hard to create an individualized treatment plan to help me. And, it worked!After about 3 months in their care, the pain subsided, the tumor began to shrink, I could eat again, and my lungs didn't fill with fluid. I felt like the tumor had started to die. Three months later scan results confirmed the tumor was completely necrotized. Shortly thereafter I was able to have the tumor surgically removed, and the subsequent pathology report said there was no cancer found. None.During my treatment time at Envita, they made me feel like family. They would greet me by name when I walked through the front door. Nellie and Elijah didn't just take my vitals each day, they took a personal interest in me and my journey. My nurse, Vanessa, was so compassionate and seemed to know before I did what I might need to be comfortable during treatments. The GTF nurses were very attentive and knowledgeable. Anna (my other patient care coordinator) was not only a huge support, but worked hard to find just the right cardiologist outside of Envita when I needed one. Amazing care by all the staff!I really enjoyed the comradarie that developed with other patients in the IV room. Supporting each other, praying with and for each other, and sharing experiences was so valuable.The atmosphere at Envita is so much like a family. Even the lobby where caregivers wait, is usually buzzing as people share, talk, and support each other.I highly recommend Envita for anyone who is looking to receive individualized treatment using the best of holistic and conventional approaches. The doctors behind the scenes obviously do a lot of research to ensure the patients get the best treatments available. Thank you, Envita!
We just met with Dr. Warren and we feel so much hope for treating my husband's lyme disease. After countless other doctors, Patrick was nearing the end of his rope. But Dr. Warren was so comforting and knowledgeable. He gave us ample time, answered all of our questions and explained the whole process to make sure we were comfortable. Their staff was friendly and helpful, especially Madisyn, who has been helping us every step of the way! Now we are in the waiting period for test results, itching to get in! Can't wait to update this review with a story of our success in a few months.
My dear friend, a mother of 5 young children, was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer at age 41. She and her husband were dismayed by the prognosis and treatment options of conventional medicine, so they turned to Envita. Envita assured her on multiple occasions that remission for her was likely. She was full of hope even as her cancer spread. She transplanted her entire family of 7 to Phoenix to spend months at a time receiving treatments at Envita and even flew to Mexico at their recommendation. Hundreds of thousands of dollars were spent in these treatments. Despite the fact that she never once had a cancer-free scan, Envita filmed a video of her and her husband for their website and labeled her a "cancer-survivor." Her cancer continued to worsen, and they continued to offer more expensive treatments. Never once did they mention hospice or recommend going home with her family to spend her final days surrounded by loved ones. Instead they continued encouraging expensive treatments not covered by insurance. When she was struggling to breathe, she finally entered the hospital in Phoenix only to find that her Envita doctors did not have rounding privileges at local hospitals and could not care for her outside of the clinic. She was surprised and dismayed. The hospital doctors were left in the position to relay information on her advanced cancer and prognosis...the truth that should have been communicated to her long before she was dying. By that point, she was too ill to travel back to her community, and she passed away in Phoenix last week...1000 miles from home. There is still a video of her listed as a "super survivor" on the front page of Envita's website. I spoke with the case manager and physicians at the hospital who relayed numerous similar stories of Envita patients dying far from home while they awaited Envita's promised cures. Instilling hope is wonderful, but withholding truth from dying patients while benefitting from them financially is unethical and shameful.
I was reading about nutritional IVs on their website. It says: “But every person has unique metabolic needs, meaning that telling a patient to open wide and then throwing some vitamins down their throat won't do the trick.” Interesting… But, then placing a steel needle in their vein and pumping them into the bloodstream is peachy? I was curious until I noticed that they list the symptoms of nutritional deficiencies, but make no mention of potential the risks of getting too much. Seems too sketchy to me.

The minute you walk into Envita you can feel the love and kindness from the very first person you meet. The staff nurses and doctors are phenomenal ❤ love Terry and Mark 😊
This is a great company! It really is, I wanted to like working here so badly. The patients were amazing! They loved coming to envita! But it was the management and some staff members that did it for me. Poor training, management has favorites, lack of diversity, and too much gossiping about other employees. Not a good company for a mature person, just trying to learn and work. The Human Resources department is awful, I expressed my concerns why I had to resign and no care in the world. Although, I only worked there for 3 weeks, that was ENOUGH time for me to understand how the environment made me feel. Discrimination is welcome at Envita from what I learned. Think twice about applying here.
My mother went to Envita Medical from Oklahoma City we weren’t sure at first how things would go for we are first timers with cancer treatments. My mom was afraid at the beginning but , the Physicians and PCC and Nurses and all the staff that came into contact with mom directly or indirectly were just one of a kind heaven sent. Thank You so much she rang the 🔔!!! I would recommend Envita Medical Center any day
First and foremost I want to thank My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ For taking a very scary time In our lives And then turning It around To bring us great joy By Leading us to Envita Medical Center . I only share this information Praying that it will help someone else. My wife is totally Blind And almost Deaf You will understand why I shared this If you keep reading My post . She was diagnosed with Breast cancer In July of 2020 We was told that it was Caught early Because She has yearly check-ups . The doctor Told us that If she Do a single mastectomy That would be the end of it . So with Much prayer In October of 2020 That's what we decided to do . And unfortunately It has already spread Into her lymph nodes . So the doctor Gave us his recommendation And we didn't like what he had to say . So we chose to go to another Hospital To get a second opinion And like the first It wasn't what we wanted to hear . They recommended Three different types of chemo Also radiation And 10 years of hormone therapy We was devastated! So With much prayer I made a call to Envita Medical Center Sometime around the first of November And thank God I did . The first Person I spoke with Was Haley She's such a breath of fresh air I really cannot say enough about her . So after a long discussion And sharing everything about My wife It was settled We are going to Envita. I was definitely at peace With the decision My wife was still A little bit reluctant But you have to understand With no Eyesight And very little hearing You would be reluctant to . But I cannot put in words How wonderful This place is . When you walk through the doors You are greeted By the most wonderful staff I have ever been associated with They are all angels . And then when you walk Into the treatment rooms You are greeted By the Most awesome nurses Anyone could ever ask for . The doctors are wonderful They truly take time with you They care about your individual needs And they treat you like you're the only patient they have . And all the staff And the nurses Has been so Caring towards my wife And it has allowed her to be At such peace During this trying time . And the most wonderful news Is that it's nothing Like what they shared with us Back home . She has not had to do Not one single round Of chemo Radiation Or hormones Because the blood work that they do here Is so precise It tells the doctor everything about your body . So you see why I thank God That he led me to Envita They are all absolutely Angels
I only went to Envita to get blood work. They were able to confirm for me that I did indeed have Lyme’s disease as I had expected, but because it is SO hard to get a diagnosis, I went undiagnosed for 19 years.Hayley was my patient care coordinator and you want her in your corner when you are fighting for your life. Jackie actually prayed with me before she drew my blood. I unfortunately had to choose somewhere closer to home for treatment due to the inability to travel far. But I highly recommend Envita and am praying for all of you on your journey to healing! God bless Envita and all of their staff and patients!
I had the privilege of working at Envita Medical Center for almost 4 years. During that time I was continuously impressed by their growth, innovation, and patient care. The employees of Envita genuinely care about their patients and strive to provide them the best care each and every day.As a former employee of Envita I can wholeheartedly say that Envita provided me an opportunity of a lifetime and I am forever grateful.
Envita has the most advance cancer treatment protocol in the world . . no exaggeration. Envita is innovative and does what other cancer centers should be doing. I highly recommend coming to Envita as the first response to any cancer diagnosis.
World class, top of the line care! My husband is undergoing treatment for advanced tongue and lymph node cancer. We are receiving excellent care and getting great results.
Incredible healing facility... treats the root and not just the symptoms. Highly recommend for those willing to put in the time and make the lifestyle choices... this is not a big pharma peddling place.
I don't have enough words to say how grateful I am for Envita and their staff! They not only saved my husband's life with their additional state of the art treatments, they saved his quality of life! What the traditional industry would have taken away from my husband, his health, his ability to speak and thrive, they gave back to him. He is now healthier than he was prior to being diagnosed with advanced stage tongue cancer. They targeted his specific needs for attacking and killing his specific cancer and left no stone unturned.There isn't a price tag that I can place on the worth of not only saving my husband's life but also allowing him to continue living life to the highest quality possible. Their procedures are state of the art and they are on top of the most up to date processes for attacking cancer. I can't thank Envita enough. There is NO OTHER PLACE I would ever go for cancer treatments! You are more than just a number at Envita, you become part of the Envita family.
I went to Envita last year for treatment for Lyme Disease. They truly were INCREDIBLE!! They saved my life. After visiting several doctors in my home state of PA and getting nowhere, with NO diagnosis and almost passing away several times.... ENVITA DID IT. They were able to diagnose me and get me the RIGHT treatment that I needed. I am now 18 months post-Envita treatment and I am doing incredible. I got my life back thanks to Envita. Their staff was thoughtful, caring, compassionate and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend everyone going there. Thank you Envita Medical Center for saving my life so I can enjoy my life with my family and 2 young daughters. Forever grateful.
Our experience at Evita has been life saving. In September 2001 my wife Sandy was diagnosed with Stage 4 colorectal cancer. She was rushed into surgery 4 days later at the Mayo Hospital in Phoenix, AZ to remove a tumor the size of her fist that was doubling every 48 hours and remove 14" of her intestines and most of her rectum. The cancer had spread to her lymph nodes and many of those had to be removed along with her ovaries as well. After surgery, she was given a 30% chance to live at the Mayo, I was told to go home and get our affairs in order as this was a very aggressive cancer that had a 90% chance of coming back in the first year. We got a second opinion a week later when we flew to NYC and visited the Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and they gave us a 20% survival rate. Both clinics prescribed the same treatment protocol - a chemo/radiation "sandwich" as they called it (chemo, then radiation, then chemo and repeat) These were bleak times, the were no other options and the chance for survival was low even with the treatment. It was there in NYC were told that diet would have zero effect in helping her get better and that vitamin C should be avoided, even eating an orange would counter-act the effects of the chemo. By the grace of God we found Envita. We were never promised anything, we were made clear that insurance at that time would not cover any of these treatments, but we were given hope that if we followed exactly what they said, Sandy would have a chance. We jumped at that chance. We knew there was no guarantee that spending the money would cure her, but we also knew there was a 70% to 80% chance she would die if we just went the traditional route of chemo and radiation. At Envita, we were told that strengthening her immune system with high dose vitamin C, lowering her acidic levels & raising alkalinity through diet, and oxygenating her blood that there was a shot she could beat this cancer since cancer can't live in an oxygenated and alkaline environment. This made sense. Chemo and radiation didn't. Sometimes it works, most times it doesn't and you feel terrible during treatment. At Envita, Sandy was feeling alive again during treatment and even though there were hard days she always had hope and could see/feel progress. We weren't just given medicine and treatments at Envita, we were given an education which lead to hope. We changed our diet immediately to what Envita suggested, and my wife faithfully went for her treatments every day, 6 days a week for 18 months. Today marks my wife's 19 year anniversary from being given a death sentence for cancer at age 39. She has never had a relapse and was never told she was in "remission". She was cured, and at age 58 today she has more energy than most people her age. Envita's staff and Doctors are incredible. They know how the body works. They treat the cause of the disease, not just the symptom, and this process takes time which is something most people aren't willing to commit to. We all want the quick fix. We watched people come to Envita during my wife's treatment period that didn't change their lifestyle or diet, and/or didn't finish their treatments to completion, and sadly they aren't here today. Most people that come to Envita come on a "last resort" option, where they are very late stage in their disease and it's sad to see how some people blame Envita for their loved ones passing when the traditional medical system gave up on them altogether and Envita was their only hope. I don't know the stories or the details of the experiences of the people who are posting here that lost loved ones and are warning people to stay away from Envita. All I can do is share how incredible our experience was, and how not only has my wife beat late stage cancer but many others we have referred there - 100's of people including 3 family members - that have been cured of cancer, and chronic infectious diseases like Lyme. Envita offers a full personalize & customized plan to a healthier life that if followed, succeeds more than it fails. Amazing place. Go with confidence.
It has been a year now since my husband's diagnosis with stage 3 Non- Hodgkin's Lymphoma. We were in shock to hear this and knew we wanted to take a much more targeted treatment route for him. We had friends that highly recommended Envita as they had had treatment there.From the minute we walked through the doors there, we knew we were in the right place! Their approach to treating cancer is so personal and targeted, unlike the bread and butter case we were told we were back home.All of the staff were AMAZING and I mean all of them! It really felt like a a family because you spent M-F with them for several hours a day.The treatment program at Envita is not just pump chemo in, no its the whole health regimen. Diet, exercise, detox, spiritual, building up your immunity, plus more. Nothing bread and butter about this place. We have made life longfriends there and keep in touch with them.If you're looking for treatment, then call and talk with one of their coordinators!May God continue to Bless of of the staff at Envita Medical Center!
My daughter was between having treatments at Envita or a clinic in TX. UNFORTUNATELY she chose Envita. They knew when they took her on as a patient that she had soft tissue sarcoma, it's fatal. My daughter did not understand this and I didn't either. Her treatments there made her worse much faster, plummeting her red blood cell counts. She ended up at Mayo Hospital in ER for a month. Mayo stabilized her so she could fly back to Seattle. She died less than a month later.I've seen other horrible reviews vanish or like mine, buried under 'other' reviews.I realized when the owner of the clinic wouldn't look at me in the eyes as he passed me in the hall, he knew my daughter was dying, but still they took our money.Don't trust them with your life.btw They also treated me for Lyme. It was also a waste of 30k.Also, it's just a clinic, not a "medical center ".
Have not been there yet but have been getting much information from a very dedicated staff. Will keep you posted.
I completely agree with the post below regarding a mother with colon cancer. We took my mom here too because she was so tired of getting chemo treatment for many years. She heard about Envita and wanted to give them a try hoping this place would help her. She got worse. They clearly saw she wasn’t getting better and they kept giving her expensive treatments. This is the part that really bothered me. I understand there are no guarantees, but be honest! She had to enter hospice care and passed away a few months later. If you’re not happy with your current doctor/treatment and you want to find another solution, get a second, third, or fourth opinion from real doctors who actually know what they’re talking about and stay away from this place. If they really found the magical treatment for cancer, I think the whole world would be at their doorstep. Think about it.
I am wondering if anyone out there has been treated at Envita with esophagus cancer. Been trying to speak to someone who has had a good experience there with this disease. It has been to no avail. So if you know someone, or are someone who has been there, please let me know. I haven't too many options left. Thank you
I loved the service I received. Dr. Alann Englis was so intergrated.
Envita gave false hope to my mom and said they could treat her cancer. My Mom went there with stage 4 colon cancer. They said they could help her. But she was there a month and her labs got worse so they discharged her and told her to get medicine from Mexico that’s not available in the US. They should not try to treat cancer with Milk Thistle and other herbs that are no match for aggressive cancer cells. My mom prepaid $14,000 for treatment I could buy at Whole Foods. My mom is home now in the final stage of her cancer. She spent a precious month in Arizona away from her home and family.
Love the staff and the personal programs they do specific for each individual
Excellent care, doctors are well informed on new therapies for cancer. Nursing staff is highly qualified and very caring. The clinic environment is one of high respect for the patient's personal journey and decision making about their own care. Be ready to be instructed if you so desire it. The Envita doctors are mentors and teachers, I was at the clinic getting treatment for two months and now I continue being monitored at home.
I have so many good things to say about Envita. In short I literally carried my 17 year old daughter Amelia in for her first appointment. Her body had begun to fail her over the six months leading up to our coming to Envita and she was wracked by such unbearable pain that she was no longer able to walk. She walked out three months later in excellent health full of smiles, happy tears and laughter. Her diagnosis was Lyme which we did not know when we came, and treatment was rough but extrodinarilly effective. She still has some healing left, but her Lyme disease is considered cured and she is pain free. It may seem that Envita is too good to be true, but what is real is that they are an office of such highly intelligent cutting edge specialists that they know how to get people well.The staff is amazing and endlessly patient and kind. We walked in each day to smiles and warmth and received genuine caring and compassion throughout our time there. Thanks to the care and specialized treatment she received Amelia now has a bright future full of health. We feel so fortunate that we found Envita and chose to pursue Amelia’s treatment there.
This has been a life changing experience and not only changed my health and educated our whole family on our health as well..they are the best staff and completely have helped above and beyond any of our expectations! We have seen amazing results in the other patients we have gotten to know as well!! Thank you Envita from the bottom of our hearts❤️❤️
