I just returned to New York from Sarasota, Florida and was given a clean bill of health! Dr. Dattoli is the best. His credentials are unrivaled in Oncology. I am so happy I chose him after extensive research. Other treatment options for prostate cancer are scary! I have zero PSA and zero side effects!

While in my 50’s , Urologists recommended surgery. Cutting in the region of my genitals wasn’t appealing and 2 friends who did robot surgery had long recoveries and one is still leaking urine while the other had cancer return within 2 years. So I searched for non surgical options and Dr. Dattoli came highly recommended. He is even held in highest esteem at places like Harvard and Sloan Kettering. 7 years later I have no regrets. Aside from less semen, everything works like before. PSA is zero!

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Dr Dattoli and his well assembled team. I was comforted when I encountered other men in their 40's at Dattoli who had been treated and were free of the cancers for a very long time (5-20 years!). Many had far more aggressive cancers than myself. Quality of life is fortunately another aspect of treatment that Dr Dattoli holds in high regard and true to form I went unscathed through the entire treatment process and beyond.

So glad we found Dr. Dattoli!!! At age 48 my husband was devastated being diagnosed as having prostate cancer, and an agressive one at that! We would have traveled any where in the world to be treated. Fortunately we found Dr. Dattoli in Florida. What a Godsend! Well, that was 7 years ago and my husband is completely free with a zero PSA. He has no side effects as if he never had prostate cancer. We just returned from Sarasota with a clean bill of health.

I was treated by Dr. Dattoli back in 2001 when I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. My urologist was ready to perform surgery and truthfully I was scared after hearing the pitfalls with surgery. After meeting with Dr. Dattoli I was convinced that seeding was the way to go. I am now thankfully 16 years later and my PSA is 0.008 and all of my bodily functions are working perfectly at age 74. I can not begin to praise both the Doctor and his amazing staff that treats me like a king!

I searched the globe to find him. He pioneered brachytherapy and now DART external radiation, so precise that it can hit a dot (mm3) while moving! There is no rival anywhere in the World. I looked into Protons which are less precise than Dattoli's and unable to "hyperdose" select cancerous lesions with both DART and then Palladium seeding. I had an aggressive cancer and surgery would leave cells behind and I'd need radiation anyway=more complications! 3.5 years and my PSA is <0.01, no hormones.

Unparalleled level of expertise. His credentials are beyond impressive. He literally wrote the book on Dart and Brachy therapy. Very impressed with his compassion in light of his pedigree. His office had the most advanced technology bar none. He saved my husbands life without side effects. Thanks Dr. Dattoli !

Dr. Dattoli and his entire staff are exceptional when it comes to patient experience! I felt right at home, well informed, and truly heard throughout every step of my prostate cancer treatment and cure. Sure, there may be a lot of steps and time to dedicate, but these people are here day in and day out helping 30+ other people in the exact same situation. Dr. Dattoli is an amazing man that is dedicated to his work. I cannot thank him enough!
