Dr Balduci was a memeber of my team at Moffitt..and was my follow up doctor. His care, sensitivity, tact and warmth..i am sure helped me stay well. Would be nice if he could teach a course at the medical school on "How To Be A 'Good Doctor''.

Two Stars

Dr. Balducci, while a seemingly kind man with gentle and proper bedside manner, is completely oblivious to any cancer treatment except for poisonous chemotherapy and cancer-causing radiation – as most typical oncologists are. The way that he handles cancer patients also lacks a bit of sympathy. He gave the patient one percentage only to turn around AFTER testing had been done and lowered the percentage of survival, which is grossly inappropriate. When the chemo wasn’t having any effect, he called the patient’s caregiver (the patient’s child) out of the room and away from the patient to discuss – also inappropriate. Supposedly, if chemo is going to work, it’s going to have an effect quickly. But it didn’t with the patient. He suggested two or three rounds of the poison (which never had an effect) before finally saying he could do no more (when he could have suggested radiation earlier). The patient and family had to find another oncologist. Dr. Balducci is not recommended. The patient died just a few months later.

Invasive breast cancer survivor (times two)

This physician is world famous . Dr. Balducci practices cutting edge medicine at a top rated super cancer facility; Moffitt Cancer Center, an integral part of University of Southern Florida. He is head of the department in geriatric oncology and has the clout to get things done expeditiously. There is no stressful down time waiting for emergent tests. People skills are superb. I highly recommend him to save your life. He saved me.
