A great doctor and is very passionate with his patients.

The best he's been my Oncologist for 3 years and thanks to him, I am doing great. He LISTENS and tries to make the treatment plan work with my goals.

This guy is AWESOME. He treated my cancer in 2008, and I can honestly say he has a bedside manner that is second to none. His passion for what he does is obvious, and his knowledge base is phenomenal... NOT your average doc by any stretch... I have sung his praises and have recommended him to many others since my intervention, and will continue to do so... Nortons is lucky to have such a top notch doc. He partner's with his patients to provide care............ EXCELLENT

This doctor wasted my 14 year old son's time, who has GBM.He clearly stated that he would write a prescription for Optune, which has no side effects and can be used concurrently with other treatment, if the FDA and Optune would allow it. I spoke to Optune, who assured me this was completely possible. However, when I shared this with LaRocca, he went back on his word and mentioned that he and his wife! had decided it was too expensive and not morally acceptable. Really?! Don't trust him!
