I am so lucky that Dr. Fumo was my oncologist. He is thorough, intelligent, and has an extremely modern approach to medicine. He backs everything with research and science, which I always appreciate, and likes to get the full picture when coming up with a plan (You'd be surprised at how often other oncologists do not do this). I trust Dr. Fumo with my life and would recommend him to my closest family member or friend.

About me: DIagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer.I undergone a bowel resection with chemotherapy.Dr. Fumo had no problem recommending me for Connecticut Medical Marijuana Program (CTMMP)He simply felt that I my side effects were not worthy of me to self medicate myself. Simply not true and not the case for me and I am sure for others who are living in the same conditions.How is it a Medical Professional can pick and choose who does or doesn't endure more suffering with no relief.
