My visits are always excellent with her! There is always a level of stress when I visit (just nature of having dealt with cancer) but her style brings a level of comfort.

My visit was a semi-annual follow-up for breast cancer. I met Dr. Valente about 2 and a half years ago after being diagnosed and after a mastectomy. She saw me through chemo and radiation. She is always very professional but at the same time compassionate. I trust her judgment completely. I am so thankful that she is my Oncologist.

Dr. Valente, First and foremost, she is an Angel that walks this earth, her knowledge, her skills, her attention to detail, are above and beyond anything that I have ever seen in the field of Cancer and treatments. My wife has been under the direct care of Dr. Valente and her great staff ,beginning in Oct 2017, like a Military General, she deployed a battle plan and gave specific instructions to her staff ref# Mrs. Barnes treatment plans, Now it's April 2020, and Mrs. Barnes just passed another Pet Scan! GOD bless Dr. Valente!
