Alberto Argomaniz – Oct 10, 2019
Last week’s visit marked the end of a two year therapy regimen which successfully treated squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck. Previously, Dr. Pizzolato, MD diagnosed and successfully treated me with chemotherapy for splenomegaly and mantle cell lymphoma. He and his PA Nicole Tundidor have consistently treated me with respect and a positive attitude. Regular physical examinations have been thorough. Also, frequent PET scans have monitored my progress. I love these doctors and the entire support staff at the Mount Sinai cancer clinic!

Dr P is a warm, caring physician. He is very knowledgeable in his field and I am trusting him with my life. You can tell him anything. He also does not sugarcoat reality and helps you work through Any anxieties you may have. He texts, answers emails and calls to see how you are. Not too many like Dr P anymore! Wouldn’t trade him for the world!
