Horrible! When my Father the patient asked him about what to expect about his health deteriating further his response well it took a while for it to get to this point. Further more when dad told him that he has been feeling weaker and informed him of chest pains the he completely dismissed it and continued to go on about getting a port put in for chemo even though there was no diagnosis of how far the cancer had progressed. He doesn't care for his patients with a completely incompetent staff..

Dr Lautersztain added a chemical to what was the existing standard protocol for colon cancers and, I believe, saved my life. This 3 chemical cocktail became the new protocol for colon cancer a few years later.

The doctor is brief but complete in his diagnosis. Very busy so when he is with a patient he listens but when the session is complete he quickly moves to the next patient. Although not overly jovial, he has a good bedside manner. I have not been able to reach him by phone or get a reply from him but his staff and PA have responded when necessary. He referred my case to specialist which were able to identify more in depth the extent of the metastatis.
