Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I was treated by Dr. Petruska in 2010 at St. Louis U. Hospital. The main reason I went to him was because I knew of his reputation as one of the best oncologists in the U.S. and I had been on faculty at St. Louis University before I retired. He had a very good reputation among his peers. I was retired when I went to him for treatment of breast cancer in 2010. The reason I am posting this is that I would like Dr. Petruska to know that I greatly appreciate him for saving my life and giving me the best treatment possible. I was not always a "grateful" patient and was "whining" a lot but he continued on with what he knew best. He does not always see us patients at our best....complaining and frightened and not liking the Dr. who is giving us this medicine but he forged ahead, offering encouragement when possible. Dr. Petruska----I Hope you get this and realize there is at least one very grateful patient out here who thinks of you and thanks you. I'm sure there are many others, too.

Dr. Petruska saved my husband's life with his research project on Autologous Stem Cell Transplants . In 1998, Bob went through unsuccessful Chemothrapy. As a last resort his Oncologist, Dr. William Moriconi, suggested Dr. Petruska's Research program. Bob underwent the Transplant. Dr. Petruska guaranteed Bob 5 years, as of 2016 he is still alive. Dr. Petruska was always there for all of his treatments. All I can say is, Thank you and God Bless you, Dr.Petruska. Barb Grofe-wife of Bob Grofe.
