Obviously dealing with serious medical issues is never fun and can be very stressful. Dr. B was very good at explaining everything in a manner that helped with the stress and in the end cured my cancer. The staff was very comforting and professional. I would recommend Dr. Bustinza and his staff to anyone in need of oncology assistance.

If you ever find yourself in the unfortunate circumstance where you or a loved one is diagnosed with cancer you’ll want the help of a doctor like Dr. Bustinza. He’s aggressive, works tirelessly and treats your case uniquely. Always realistic and transparent. Never hard to reach and his team incredibly easy to work with. I never doubted Dr. B was fighting this battle along with us. If you are reading this because you are on the hunt for the best, let this be your sign. I owe this man my life.

Dr. Bustinza is very knowledgeable and so compassionate about his work and with helping his patients. From the very moment I met with him, he made me feel comfortable and he took all the time necessary to explain my diagnosis, my treatment options, and what I could expect to experience through the whole process. Dr. Bustinza often confers with colleagues to discuss new treatment possibilities and to brainstorm for alternate procedures. He truly cares about his patients and their families.

Dr Bustinza literally saved my life. He was originally my oncologist but I went for a second opinion and family had me to go with other oncologist at mid Florida . My experience there almost costed me my life. My family called Dr. Bustinza and he came to the hospital and brought me back from the brink of death. He is very thorough and personal. I thank god for him every day for allowing me to come back to him because without his expertise I WOULD NOT BE HERE TODAY. I trust him 100%.

I have faced and am facing a life and death situation I met DR. Bustinza in the ICU amongst many of the doctors I now have DR. Bustinza stood out, the reason being he genuinely cares for his patients. I will recommend him to both family and friends I love him like a brother and I feel if it were not for his aggressive treatment I would be worst off than I am today thank you Dr.Bustinza its nice to know that in todays medicine there are still a few Doctors who care thank you.

Dr. B. is simply a blessing. Dr. B. and his staff (specifically, Joelle & Becky) are rare assets in a declining world of patient care. I had the pleasure of witnessing his character, compassion, knowledge and overall ability to give his patients an understanding of their diagnosis and treatment plan. Dr. B. was always available to assist and encourage the patient (Beverly) and family members in any way imaginable. He even made home visits (rare for most dr.’s) and was always positive/encouraging

I feel he is a very good doctor . He doesn't treat you as a number. He treats you as a person. He talks to as a person , as the more he knows about you. The more he can help you..
