I’ve been treated by Dr. Alberico for 4 years. Every visit is characterized by team professionalism, caring and excellent communication. I can’t say enough superlatives about VOA in general and Dr. Alberico in particular. I love that guy.

I would recommend Dr. Alberico to my family and friends. He is through and explains what happens next during treatment (i.e. chemotherapy, surgery or radiation etc.). He is good about asking questions regarding side effects of the chemotherapy drugs and makes adjustments to meet my needs at that particular time. I have another health condition that requires Dr. Alberico to communicate with other doctors outside of the regular VOA team. He communicates well with them advising them about what medications I can and cannot take during my treatments. If there is a question about what may be causing a side effect he is good at doing further tests to rule certain things out. The one area I would say needed improvement is the wait time to see him for each visit. He does take time with me as a patient answering any questions I have. He works well with his PA. Together I think they make a great team.

Dr. Alberico genuinely cares about his patients. His concern is evident by the meticulous care he takes reviewing their history, their present concerns, and careful consideration of future treatments. You leave feeling like your health and your well being matter. After a few years of quality care you feel like you have a friend. I can not recommend Dr. Alberico highly enough. He’s the one you want walking with you through life’s struggles. The nurses are friendly and efficient; always available to answer questions and help with the treatment process.

I have ongoing visits with Dr. Alberico since Dec. 2019. He and his staff have always treated me with respect and made sure I understood effects that would most likely result from treatment. Most importantly Dr. Alberico coordinates directly with my cancer team at John’s Hopkins Hospital. This collaboration between the two organizations has allowed my longevity to be extended well past my prognosis date. I strongly recommend Dr. Alberico and his caring staff.

During the past 4 1/2 years of having cancer and being in remission I have had the expert knowledge of a very caring oncologist, Dr. Thomas Alberico. His treatment of my chemotherapy and knowing just what kind of chemo to give me has made all the difference of my being in remission and beating my stomach cancer. I would recommend him to anyone just like he was recommended to me by my close friend who also had his care for cancer. He and his caring team are A number 1!
