Dr. DiCarlo is a stellar oncologist. He is professional, kind, compassionate, has empathy and is an extraordinary human being. Oncologists and surgeons are not just physicians, but true lifesavers. During my cancer diagnosis, Dr. DiCarlo uses molecular/genomic sequencing which assists him in his treatment regimen for the cancer you are fighting to overcome. Over the past 8 years, my cancer treatment has included, surgeries and various anti-cancer treatments. I have been very fortunate to be a participant in 2 clinical trials, which kept me here in San Luis Obispo. I highly recommend the staff we have here in San Luis Obispo, oncologists, RN’s and staff. Isn’t it amazing, the Central Coast now has a world class cancer facility with renowned reputation and physicians? UCLA physicians, RN’s and Staff are all excellent at what they do; they go beyond the call of duty. I am blessed to have Dr. DiCarlo be part of this relentless journey. Debra G Arroyo Grande, CA

Dr Dicarlo is one of the few oncologists who has listened patiently with care and concern and has extensive knowledge in many options for care based on each symptom and diagnosis. He is a doctor that you can trust in providing the best possible care and with genuine compassion for his patients. I am grateful for his level of care, compassion, and practicing the best possible protocol for his patients.
