Care Philosophy

As a Uro-Oncologist/Radiation Oncologist, my over-riding concern is to cure patients having prostate cancer (and select other sites) while minimizing side effects. I pioneered brachytherapy for the prostate and have published 3 medical textbooks on this modality, 12 medical booklets and over 100 medical journal articles on this topic. I developed the most sophisticated form of external radiation called "DART". With this DART, a "microbeam" strikes an individual target called a "voxel" (a cubic millimeter) while it is moving. Using a proprietary software program, the target region and surrounding normal anatomy becomes "voxelized". Normal tissues are "off limits" unless the tumor directly invades that structure. I use nanoparticle diagnostic technologies to precisely target tumors with DART (especially patients who have advanced nodal/bone disease). I have published the highest cure rates for intermediate to high-risk prostate cancer while boasting the lowest side effects worldwide.Read more

Dr. Dattoli was thorough and pleasant. I subsequently had an awful experience with the billing office. They charged me $610 for the use of the room for an office visit. This was in addition to the few hundred I paid the physician. My insurance would not cover it and Moffitt is going after me for the entire amount with not even a consideration of a discount for self-pay. This is a despicable way to treat a cancer patient!

Living in Europe and having prostate cancer is not a good especially when you're in your early 50's. After exhaustive research I found Dr Michael Dattoli to be brilliant, compassionate and his Cancer Center to be light years ahead of other World Class Centers.Just returned from Sarasota and given my 5 year clean bill of health which is a far cry what others at other Centers world-wide had expected as I had a aggressive cancer. No bowel/bladdersymptoms or sexual dysfunction. Bravo Dattoli!

Extreme attention to detail, technologically advanced, friendly and highly experienced staff. The best in the prostate Cancer treatment arena. A leader in the industry. Treats prostate cancer patients others don't know how to treat. Wish I had found him earlier.

Dr. Dattoli and his staff are caring, compassionate and friendly. From the front desk to the nursing staff and therapist, they make you feel at home even when you are miles away from home. Talking to other patients in the waiting room who are going through the same situation you are helped ease the nervousness I had.

My case was challenging. I'm from Utah and it was heartening to meet so many others from around the globe who weren't given a chance, only to be telling their stories 10-20 yrs later. Dr Dattoli is a genius. When I met with him, he spent 120 minutes listening intensely and never even checked his watch! That's rare esp from a famous doctor. His technology is unrivaled, the facility beautiful and inviting. His staff is remarkably smart and so pleasant. Sarasota is a gem and for healing.

Best doctor experience ever. His bed side manner and professionalism and knowledge of my husbands condition was out standing
The treatment of the patient by the covering nurse was terrible during the process the whole time .. And we weren't permitted to talk to the Dr as soon as the treatment started. Also, we were never informed that during the time of two and a half months getting radiation treatment that one should not lay close in bed with animals or people. My two cats died shortly after of cancer and who knows what else.
