Dr. Douglas S Reintgen has the following 2 specialties
- Surgical Oncology
Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

I was referred to this Dr. as a follow-up for an abnormal mammogram. I waited 2.5 weeks for the appointment, the day finally comes and I waited another 45 minutes to be seen as the Dr. I was told is "Busy". Finally he comes in, I express the pain I have been having for the last few weeks in the same location as the complicated cyst to which his respond was "stop drinking coffee, tea and chocolate". I explained to him "I don't drink or eat any of that". He then advises that I take a Tylenol for pain. Without even looking at my images, he advises me to come back in 6 months. To say he was rude is an understatement. He didn't mind taking my $65 co-pay but was not willing to take the time to even explain what my diagnosis was. I have never felt so dismissed in my life. I would not recommend this Doctor even if he was the last Oncologist in town. I wish you all the luck and hope you have a better experience than I did should you in fact have to see him.
Ive heard he is a good surgeon (we chose not to go with him) but when we had an appt with him, he was really rude. He asked if we had insurance and we said no because we were quoted at &600/month plus outrageous deductibles and thats all he talked about the whole appt, except the 3 minutes he too actually discussing the surgery..all he could say was we were not smart for not having insurance, blah blah blah. its not our fault, we cant afford it! we were planning to pay out of pocked for my husbands surgery but we decided to get into Moffitt instead. You need to feel comfortable with your doctor when you or a loved one has cancer, and we felt way less than comfortable with him. again, im not doubting his surgeon skills, Im sure hes great. but as for being personable, Id give him -10 stars.
