Patient Comments (6)
in Rockwall, TX |
I am a current patient of Dr. Amato since October 2010. I have prostate cancer with mets to L3 and lymph nodes, rising PSA above 15. Unlike other Oncologists I consulted who suggested cookbook method of treatment, he immediately put me on a cocktail of chemo-hormonal therapy. I am still alive and well because of him. I just received a letter from UT Health about his un-expected and undetermined length medical leave. My sincere prayers are with him for quick and full recovery.

I've been a patient of Dr. Amato since 1999. At that time I was told at the Spring Branch hospital I had six months to live with kidney cancer. Thanks to Dr. Amato I'm still here. I received his letter today about his medical leave and will keep him in my prayers. Theodore L. Dorenkamp

I would recommend Dr. Amato to anyone who is facing advanced prostate cancer. He and his staff are very professional and considerate. His success rate is very high and he tests and communicates extremely well throughout the procedure. The wait time can vary but you must realize he is extremely busy and takes his time with patients.

Really he is an Angel Of The Medicine
Houston, TX |
Knowledgeable about your cancer. Excellent communicator to break down the most complicated answer in a lay persons terms. Motivated to find an answer and well thought out options. Listener to the smallest of your worries. Empathetic to where you are medically. Driven. Approachable, just to name a few. WORTH WAITING ON IN SOMETIMES A VERY BUSY CLINIC!!!
in Sulphur, LA |
Dr. Amato diagnosed my husband in 1993 with testicular cancer. He treated my husband in 1993-94 for stage 4 cancer, entered him into a clinical trial and my husband was successfully cured and has been 100% cancer free, with minimal side effects of treatment since 1994. My husband owes his life to this remarkable doctor.
