Several years ago I found out I had cancer and we were devastated not knowing who to turn to. A close friend recommended Dr. Talamonti and called him for me. He called me back shortly and reassured me he would take care of me. My entire family will always be grateful to Dr. Talamonti for saving my life. He is one of the most skilled, dedicated, compassionate surgeons who truly cares about his patients.

In September of this year (2016) Dr. Talamonti successfully removed an 8cm tumor that was pressing against my pancreas. He came HIGHLY recommended by 3 independent and trusted sources. Throughout, Dr. Talamonti has spent as much time as needed to patiently explain things and answer questions. I really cannot say enough good things about him, and what I have written here is just a fraction of that. I will be forever thankful to God for leading me to this exceptional surgeon and godly man!

Despite his excellent reputation, Dr. Talamonti turned out to be a nightmare. He told me I had a pancreatic mass and needed a Whipple procedure. When he performed surgery, there was nothing wrong and as a result of the damage he did during surgery, I've been on IV and J-tube feeds for a year. After surgery when I told him something was wrong, he ignored me until I was so sick I ended up at the Mayo Clinic to fix the damage. Not to mention the $500,000+ spent on medical care. He ruined my life.
