Dr. Alemar cured me of my late stage, triple negative breast cancer 11 years ago. Recently a friend was diagnosed with leukemia and I went with her to see her doctor. After we left, I told her we needed to go to Dr. Alemar. The difference between the two doctors is amazing. Dr. Alemar is so much better in every single way. She is so happy that I made the suggestion, and has so much more hope now. I pray he will cure her as well. Can't recommend him highly enough.

Dr. Alamar himself seemed nice and competent, but Florida Cancer specialists is like a huge impersonal factory. Initial scheduling process was completely confusing and handled incompetently by their staff. On my second visit I was stuck in a waiting room left there for over an hour with nobody coming to explain anything to me about the delay or when I would be seen. After an hour and a half I had to leave to go to another appointment and reschedule. Terrible impersonal clinic management!

Dr. Alemar and his staff have been an absolute godsend for my father and our family during his battle with cancer. He and his entire clinic have gone over and above anything we expected when it comes to accommodating us and treating my father. Dr. Alemar is extremely knowledgeable about the latest advancements and treats his patients with the best and most up-to-date treatments available! I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Alemar to anyone I know that is fighting cancer.

He is always considerate and spends time explaining everything. Never rushes. I see him once a month and I never have to wait. Of all the specialists I see, Dr Alemar is the best

Dr. Alemar was recommended to me by two of my physicians and I am 100% satisfied with him. He was extremely thorough and has a wonderful, concerned bedside manner. I would without question recommend Dr. Alemar to my family and friends and to anyone needing medical care for oncology and/or hematology conditions. The office staff was also very kind and efficient. I am thankful that I was referred to Dr. Alemar.

Stage 3B 8.5 x4.4cm Mass upper lung against the aorta, one breakaway lower mass, and in one lymph node. Very Serious condition, I heard of Dr Alemar through a friend of whom life was saved. Desperate for a caring Doctor and found him. 6/25/16 Cancer is gone, 7 months ago I thought I had little chance. God has his hand on Dr. Alemar. Most important is that when you are with him his attention is undivided he focuses on only you. He is never hurried and gets to your specific need. Thank You Doctor.
