Dr. T has treated my cancer for the past 3 1/2 years. Did a stem cell transplant in May of 2017. He is very thorough and explains what is going on. I feel that his expertise and professionalism is the reason I am here today and able to write this. Thanks Dr. T!!!!

Dr. Tarantolo has been amazing! When I first received my diagnosis, my world was completely shaken - he has been upfront with me every step of this journey and I trust him implicitly! Fantastic oncologist! Wish I didn't need to use his services (who wants cancer?) - but I do and he has been awesome!

Dr. Tarantolo is a excellent Doctor, he has been our doctor for more than 8 years. Our last appointment he came into the room and looked at my wife and asked her if she was feeling run down and constantly tired. My wife replied yes I am getting more tired more easily, Dr. Tarantolo stated that she needed a blood infusion due to her condition. After the infusion you could see the difference just like Dr. Tarantolo predicted, he is a outstanding Doctor Who cares and he is awesome with his patients

Dr. T is Amazing! He is a genius and is meticulous at making sure you have the proper treatment. He has a great bedside manner and is very easy to speak with. He works extremely hard and it wasn't uncommon to see him at 8:00 p.m. while I was in the hospital. I highly recommend Dr. T as well as several family friends he has cured from cancer. I was very fortunate to get him as I went to the ER thinking I had the flu but instead was admitted that day with Luekemia.

Dr Tarantolo is not only passionate about what e does, he is passionate about the care he gives his patients. Many nurses who see them perform behind the scenes highly recommend him. We have had first hand experience with his caring, compassionate, passionate ways. Extremely knowledgeable and helpful in many ways. Highly recommend him and his group.

My father was diagnosed with leukemia and his bone marrow transplant and 17 years of surgeries and cancer treatment were administered by Dr. Tarantolo and the University of Nebraska Medical Center staff. Beyond being a specialist and excellent doctor that I highly recommend, Stefano Tarantolo is a compassionate and understanding human being. The bond he formed with my father will never be forgotten as it's people like Dr. Tarantolo that make this world a better place.

Dr Tarantolo is a wonderful doctor. He treated me for Hodgkins Disease from which I made a full recovery. Five years later I was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma. Where I would consider him an expert in blood cancers (Hodgkins) he is not in Cholangio. However I turned to him for assistance with this diagnosis and he has taken the challenge on. Cholangio has no cure yet but this man has done his due diligence in researching this rare cancer and is helping prolong my life.

Dr. Tarantolo has extensive knowledge and experience in Hematology and cancer treatment. He was straight forward and thorough in explaining my diagnosis and treatment. He was proactive in warding off some of the side effects of chemo. Dr. Tarantolo genuinely cared about me as a patient. He is personable, approachable and always ready to answer any questions. I feel fortunate to have Dr Tarantolo as my physician.
