My philosophy is to take care of patients with advanced gastrointestinal cancers throughout their whole lives. Given my rigorous training in both medical oncology and palliative medicine, I tailor recommendations from the day of diagnosis based on the patient's personal hopes and values. In my GI oncology clinic, patient discussions will focus primarily on quality of life and expectations to help guide our shared decisions.
In the role of palliative care consultant, we are called for some kind of distress or suffering. I believe that our purpose is to flesh out the cause of the distress with an empathic ear and facilitate resolution as able. Sometimes this results in a hospice admission, while other times supports better communication.

*Dr. Wiebe is an excellent doctor, who showed so much concern and compassion for me. She took a lot of time, allowing me to express my feelings.
Dr. Wiebe was GREAT!!! She spent a lot of time with me answering ALL of my questions. I only wish she had been my doctor for the whole time I was receiving chemotherapy. The other doctor I had did not show much concern for me and he often told me to do tings and then changed his mind. I wish I had gotten one of these surveys fro his office. I would have given him a bad review. Dr. Wiebe did all of the right things and I really like her.
Very pleased with all phases of my initial meeting.
We have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Wiebe and her team
Highly recommend *Dr. Wiebe.
*Dr. Wiebe is an excellent doctor, & I appreciate her efforts to ensure that I get the best possible care.
