I do not know Dr. Civantos, but I do know that he will not accept what medical will pay for a complete radical neck surgery. His case manager rejected my friend, with throat cancer, because: "Dr. Civantos is a specialist." As a nurse, it is very disappointing to learn that this doctor is too "Special," to help those who do not have private insurance, but really need a specialist to perform a very serious, specialized surgery. Shame on you, Dr. Civantos.

dr. civantos is a wonderful doctor and i am grateful for him. he saved my life. I had stage 4 tongue cancer and neck cancer. he did a 13 hour surgery on me. had to do reconstruction of my tongue, and remove lemphnodes from my neck. he was very supportive with my family. after 13 hours of surgery, he still found my family and told them about the surgery and how my recovery would be. I will be 6 years cancer free as of the end of august. the nurses and nurses aides were wonderful as will. n newman

Went to him to have a parotid tumor removed. Very professional and informative. Listened to and addressed my concerns. Was very knowledgeable and experienced. Post op was exactly as he had described. No complications.
He has a terrible bedside manner and very unprofessional to the collaborative care involving other physicians by verbally degrading them to the patient's. He is very arrogant and i will never recommend him to ANY person.
