Dr. Romero started treating my mother in May of 2010. This doctor saved my mother life. My mother was 69 at the time. Since being in Dr.Romero care she had surgery and wonderful treatment. She is kind, helpful and willing to go above and beyond. We could not have asked for a better Doctor. My mother now 75 still is in her care.

I haven't had the chance to write a review on my Dr. Silvia Romero and all the wonderful things I have had the chance to experience with this Dr. I want to say first and far most I have never met a more caring and wonderful Dr. I was scared to death of going thru cancer. I had just been told that I had Hodgkin's Lymphoma stage 2. WOW!!!!!! Dr. Romero was amazing and soon had my fears addressed and I knew at that moment I had chose the best Dr. to walk me thru my journey . Thank you God !!!!!

Dr. Romero is kind, compassionate, and patient. She always takes the time to answer my questions, as well as my family's questions. She encourages me to call the office in between appointments with any questions or concerns. I feel very comfortable having Dr. Romero as my oncologist and would highly recommend her.

My experience wasn't so glowing as other reviewers. I thought I was alone in this until I met three others who also quit this physician. If one refuses radiation/chemo right away choosing to alter lifestyle changes, integrative therapies or anything else she won't support you , give you blood work or treat you the same way as others who just go along with radiating themselves. Since my surgery over a year ago she refused to give me any blood work at all or monitor me.

I have had the privilege of having Dr. Romero as my oncologist for the past 5 years. From the very first day I met her she has never changed, she is warm, caring, sincere, highly professional and knowledgeable, always going the extra mile for her patients. I trust her with my life! I thank God everyday for doctors like Dr. Romero - they are very special - can you imagine having to treat cancer patients daily and their loved ones? I can't! But she does and does so with GREAT RESPECT and LOVE!

Dr.Romero and her staff have helped me so much during my battle with breast cancer. I would highly recommend her if you should ever be in my situation. I have worked in the medical for many years and there is not a better physician that I can think of to help a patient when they are facing such devastating news. Thank you Dr. Romero for saving my life.

Dr. Romero is a very caring doctor. Her concern for her patient's well being is very apparent. She went above and beyond to help me. Besides her compassion she very knowledgeable and I feel comfortable entrusting my health in her care. Also, her PAs are fantastic and they make a great oncology team!

When I was diagnosed with cancer ,there was no other oncologist that I would entrust my care to except Dr. Romero. I had heard from others, that she was the Doctor to see. She and her PA'S, Nicole and Jenna, have always been very knowledgeable, answered questions, they explained my course of treatment in detail, listened to my concerns, made adjustments when I was having severe side effects from Chemo, made an infusion center available to me on weekends, assisted me in getting a 2nd opinion.

First of all I am 2 yrs in remission from rectal cancer, as far as I am concerned I have THE BEST DR. I was treated with the utmost respect, I was included in decision making, & when I was really sick from the chemo, Dr Romero adjusted my doses & kept me onIV fluids, until I felt better. Well 1 yr into my remission my husband was diagnosed with leukemia, we were not pleased with his Dr & switched to Dr Romero, she said to get referral to moffitt cancer center, which we did & thank God ,

If I could, I would give her zero stars. Do not let your family or friends see her. She does not care about her patients longevity in life or the availability of different treatments that could/would be more successful. Dr. Romero should not be a cancer treating physician, I wouldn't let her treat my pets. Find someone who is more aggressive in your treatment and doesn't let your love one die 6 months after being given a clean bill of health.
