We found Dr Bustinza when my dad was getting worse during his chemo treatments. The moment we started seeing Dr Bustinza he did everything to get my dad on the right track. Now my dad is doing sooo much better. We still have a ways to go but he's gone from 110lbs to 155lbs in just 2 months, he's fighting again, his tumors shrunk & I'm happy we made the decision to see Dr Bustinza. He saved my dads life. He's Amazing and he knows his stuff! Not to mention his hospitality and fabulous personality!

No one wants to hear the word cancer, much less twice within 5 months. Dr. Bustinza walked with us through the whole process, explaining in depth the treatment plans. He was more caring and thorough than we could have ever imagined. Because of his knowledge and treatment plans, I am CANCER FREE! There are not enough words to explain how much we trust and believe in Dr. Bustinza as the best oncologist ever!

Dr. Bustinza is an amazing doctor. Not only was his knowledge in eradicating my cancer unparalleled, he cared about my total well being. When my PCP took too long for me to see a specialist, Dr. Bustinza made sure I was on the right protocol, saving me from complications. If any of my loved ones was diagnosed with cancer, I wouldn't let them see anyone else.

Outstanding Doctor. Outstanding human being. From day one when your life changes Dr. Bustinza was caring,considerate, and compassionate as he explained the diagnosis and the course that we were going to journey together on. Throughout the treatment with all our visits, Dr. Bustinza never one time rushed through our appointment and always answered all of our questions. When my first round of chemo did not work, Dr. Bustinza was more upset than me. How can anyone ask for more from a doc.

This summer I was admitted to the Hospital.My family and myself were terrified.I was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder.From the first moment that I met the doctor, he has been nothing but caring.He was very kind and knowledgeable. He explain to my family and myself all the treatments avail and gave us a realistic outcome.I was so afraid that I would not live to see another day but Dr Bustinza never gave up hope.After 37 days in the hospital and under his care, I'm finally better.Thank you Doc

The most horrible experience of my entire life, 3 years later and i still think of the day i met this horrible Dr. My mother had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. After a painful 1.5 month recovery from a whipple surgery, we were discharged and told to seek an oncologist at Jackson Hospital. After an extremely long 4.5 hour wait, we walked into an exam room where we met Dr. Bustinza. He was very rude, dismissive, and uninterested in our questions. We left crying and never went back.
