Peter Hinderberger, MD was born and raised in Switzerland, where he also attended medical school. In 1978, he completed part of his internship at the Lukas Klinik in Arlesheim, Switzerland (now the oncology department of the Klinik Arlesheim), an integrative oncology clinic. In 1982, he spent another six months at that clinic to deepen his knowledge and practical experience in the use of subcutaneous and intravenous mistletoe. In the spring of 1984, Dr. Hinderberger opened his general practice at the Ruscombe Mansion Community Health Center in Baltimore. He now practices at the Raphael Clinic of Maryland (RaphaelClinicMD.com) in Towson, Maryland. Integrative oncology has always been a focus of his research and practice.
