melbourne, fl |
Dr. Badolado is the most kind, caring, and understanding doctor I’ve ever had. I’ve been doctoring since 1988 off and on with breast cancer and have had a slew of doctors. Dr. B is the only one who truly understands how emotionally challenging treatment can be. He lets me know right away the results of my tests via phone call to allay my anxiety. He is aware of all the latest treatments and cutting edge research. I am trusting him with my life...literally.

I have known Craig. Badolato for over 20 years. I had gone to him when he had first started practice in the area, and he treated me for severe anemia. In 2007, my late husband and I chose him to be my husband's oncologist when my husband was diagnosed with lung cancer. I greatly appreciated the fact that he presented to us all options that we could follow, and left it up to us as to what path my husband would take. His honesty and knowledge enabled us to put our trust and faith in his hands
