Dr. Graber is involved in the care of people with primary and secondary brain tumors (gliomas, meningiomas, brain metastates, etc.) and other neurologic issues due to cancer. He is especially interested in clinical trials, including the use of the immune system, rational molecular therapy and other advanced modalities to better treat cancer and reduce symptoms and side effects. He also treats immune-mediated neurologic diseases associated with cancer, such as paraneoplastic syndromes and infection. He believes in the value of multidisciplinary care of patients and their families, encompassing surgery, radiation, imaging, nursing, recovery therapy and psychological support to provide the best possible care for the total person and their family with members of the team at Swedish and the Ivy Center.Read More

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments. Responses are measured on a 10 - point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5 - point scale in order to display results in a 5 - star rating.

[...] Dr. Graber spends a lot of time with me and my family. He is a wonderful human being and we all love the person he is. However, as a doctor overseeing my supposedly "incurable disease,"according to him, getting him to hear what I am saying and to get answers to questions, referrals, my medical records, scans, tissue samples, etc., feels more impossible than beating brain cancer! I have wasted countless hours calling and emailing; mostly hearing from his wonderful staff who are as helpful as they can be with no license to write prescriptions, sign off on referrals, clinical trials, I am so disappointed and frustrated that I am trying to find a different doctor while I am still alive and able to do so. All the delays, foot dragging and my almost daily follow up work have left me feeling exhausted and overwhelmed. I am mostly advocating for myself because I am capable of doing so, but I am not getting the cooperation I need out of the Swedish medical group so I am choosing to move on to get all of this frustration and negativity out of my life! [...] I feel like I have already lost a lot of time, but I am trusting God's perfect timing in all of this, because ultimately I am trusting Him to lead me to the people who can help my body heal so I can be done with all this. I have too much living left to do to spend time being bogged down like this.Read More
Dr. Graber is extremely kind, informative and generous with his time.Read More
