in San Diego, CA |
Dr Piccioni is as intelligent as it gets, but is also very focused and has a balance of realistic optimism. If you ask direct, without hesitation he gives it to you. I have had his care for a year on a level 4 glioblastoma and thru courses of radiation and chemotherapy simultaneously & one of his recommended clinical drugs, I am thus far tumor free. his Ucsd's team use of cross functional treatment, & behavioral help (Ucsd cancer specific therapists and free art class) are incredible!
