10 STAR REVIEW FOR DR DATTOLI AND HIS TEAM
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael J Dattoli - Posted on January 31st, 2020
If 5 stars are great, I give Dr. Dattoli and his team 10 Stars You will love being a member of the "Dattoli Ensemble". I have been since age 57 and that was five years ago. I really don't know how they do it but Dr. Dattoli and his team are so inviting, warm, professional and simply astounding from beginning to the end of treatment. I forgot about my cancer and actually enjoyed meeting patients who had come from around the country and world and who had been successfully treated many years ago (some having really complicated cases). I met no one who was unhappy. I also met Dr. Dattoli's partner, Dr. Kaminsky, and he too is a very pleasant and knowledgable person. The technology within the Dattoli facility is second to none (DART) and this team really has their act together. I own a business and employ over a hundred and I honestly don't know how Dr. Dattoli manages to pay so much attention to every detail of the operation in the cancer center. I don't know how he finds the time to constantly write medical articles and even books while being the guest lecturer at the world's most famous universities. He is the foremost expert on prostate brachytherapy (seed implants) and the hospital that he uses also works seamlessly. I'm cancer-free at age 64 having been treated 5 years ago. I can't recommend the Dattoli Cancer Center enough!
DR. DATTOLI AND HIS TEAM ARE MIRACLE WORKERS

I am 62 years old and upon being diagnosed with prostate cancer I found many conflicting opinions regarding treatment options. My cancer was high risk (Gleason 7,8 and 9) and my urologist told me that if I had radiation, I could never have surgery again! Then, I went to a community support group where I learned that most cancers return after being surgically removed following which radiation and hormones are recommended compounding the side effects of the surgery! It was suggested that I contact Dr. Dattoli who is an expert in all facets of the disease and who successfully treated a few acquaintances. He called me one night and gave a very balanced opinion highlighting the pros and cons of all treatments including his own. He was never pushy. I decided to leave Philly and I was treated by Dr. Dattoli and his wonderful team and completed my treatment 2 years ago. I was on hormones for 6 months and did have side-effects from that but none from the radiation and seeding. I am now cancer-free and extremely happy to be back to my norm with no side effects at all.

In 2003 I had the radiation/implant done by Dr. Dattoli ,he and his staff made the procedure as easy and pleasant as it could be. Since that time I go back yearly for an annual check up.The results have been 100 percent cued,no sign of any cancer what so ever. I thank god and Dr.Dattoli for these results. Donald T.Gilbert
GLAD THAT I DID MY RESEARCH!!
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael J Dattoli - Posted on March 22nd, 2019
Following a diagnosis of prostate cancer, treatment options can become very confusing. The initial thinking is to "take it out" and virtually every Urologist will tell you that removal is the best option. I did a lot of research and found that this simply wasn't true and that the cancer returns between 65% to 95% after the surgery. Moreover, most patients suffer impotence and even worse is incontinence. At first, patients like myself are told that if I have radiation first, you can never have surgery and that's simply NOT TRUE. After radiation, surgery is certainly an option, although many other "salvage treatments" are better and associated with less side effects than surgery anyway. It's interesting how radiation suddenly becomes the best thing since sliced bread to the urologist to clean up the mess. Living in Wisconsin, I didn't like any good treatment options nearby when I decided to be treated with radiation. I wanted the number 1 Radiation Oncologist with the best technologies in the world. That led me to Dr Dattoli in Sarasota, Florida. He's brilliant, has an incredible pedigree and developed a very precise form of radiation called "DART". He also pioneered seed implants and my research confirmed that combining radiation with seeding has the best cure rates with the least side effects of any therapy. He is very well published and his clinical treatment team are unbelievable. His partner, Dr Kaminsky seems to be very pleasant and also has an impressive pedigree. I just returned home to frigid Wisconsin having gotten really good news from Dr Dattoli. I can't recommend him enough!

I was to rush into surgery for Prostate Cancer, so said the urologist. things were bad! Yet not wanting to make rapid decisions without reason, my wife and I went about checking the alternatives. There came Dattoli's name up several times. After we completed due diligence we decided to come to DCC. Now 14 years later and living a full life I am grateful to Dr. D for his innovative work to find a better way. I have guided several men to DCC over the past years.
Too Good to be True?
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael J Dattoli - Posted on September 26th, 2018
Four years ago, after being diagnosed with Prostate Cancer, I found myself scared, scrambling around doing research about surgery vs radiation, reading reviews and stressing over the most important decision of my life - what to do about it? How could anyone receive the positive reviews that Dr. Dattoli does? I knew the answer because 20 years earlier, Dr. Dattoli had treated and cured my father. I checked out the latest treatments, including surgery, then had an hour-long telephone call with Dr. Dattoli and began treatment with him the next week. Fast-forward four years. I am happy, healthy and cancer-free. Everyone must make their own decision about which treatment Path is the best for them. However, there is a reason why people come from all over the country and around the world for treatment here. It is the same reason why so many men come here who have had treatments that failed somewhere else. Dr. Dattoli is the best there is treating Prostate Cancer.
AS GOOD AS IT GETS!!

I feel so fortunate to have found Dr Dattoli having done extensive research after being diagnosed with a somewhat complicated prostate cancer (from DaVinci Robot to Protons to Cyberknife etc). I had visited several of the nations top cancer centers and received varying opinions on how to proceed, further complicating my treatment decision. I then found the Dattoli Cancer Center Research Center in beautiful Sarasota, Florida. I was amazed to receive a telephone call from Dr Dattoli himself and this lasted over 90 minutes! During our discussion, he basically covered what others had offered at the nation's top centers and knew the pros and cons associated with each. My confidence grew as I realized that Dr Dattoli pretty much lives and breathes prostate cancer, and he made a very sound recommendation combining a little of each of what others recommended. I very quickly made arrangements to be treated at his cancer center. Dr Dattoli spent another 1.5 hours when he met me in consultation and he always made himself available to me during the treatment process. His staff is also truly remarkable. Meanwhile, I was treated with a proprietary form of high technology radiation called "DART" which is the most precise form of radiation anywhere. I breezed through the treatment process and today I am free from prostate cancer with no side effects. This was a painless process and is so different from other patients I met elsewhere who had other therapies, especially the robotic surgery. While at Dattoli's, I met other patients with similar stories and similar outcomes as mine and some were treated as long as 20 years ago when Dr Dattoli was in New York City. His background is so impressive and he is renowned internationally. I liked Sarasota so much that I recently purchased a condo in Sarasota, a nice reprieve from the Northeast. I can't say enough positive things about Dr Dattoli, his research center and team!
NOTHING BETTER IN EUROPE
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael J Dattoli - Posted on July 2nd, 2018
I am relatively young, age 50 and with prostate cancer aggressive and did not know what to do. Thank you for my friend recommended Dr Dattoli over all European Cancer Centers and he was very correct! Now I'm back to work and did not even need recovery. This Cancer Center has highest technology anywhere in world so I move on and watch my children grow. Dr Dattoli is Italian and makes everything warm and easy, no stress. I praise Dr Dattoli over one- thousand times for what he did for me!

I normally do not write reviews. But, in this case it is a must. I went to Dr. Dattoli with a serious condition ( I don't like to use the C word) Dr. Dattoli not only cured my serious condition but I never been to a doctor who took so much interest in a patient (me). He not only cured me but also had a long talk with me in His office. He talked in length about having a positive attitude that He said was extremely important. He talk about my life style, & the changes I should make. He gave me a certain diet that was easy to follow. He also insisted on a few key vitamins supplements that a bought at my local health food store. I had sent two of my friends from out of state to see Him, they also had very serious C condition. They were extremely happy & thankful that I sent them to Dr. Dottoil.They praised Him & His wonder staff. To me Dr. Dottoil is a healer & one of a kind. I stand by my word He is God sent, I might not be writing this today if it wasn't for Dr. Dattoli
DR DATTOLI IS AMAZING
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael J Dattoli - Posted on April 23rd, 2018
Dr Dattoli is amazing My case was extremely complicated as I had previously been treated for a rectal cancer with surgery, chemo therapy and radiation. I live in the greater Chicago area and so had plenty of input about my case from top Medical Centers. Most told me that I wasn't a candidate for any additional radiation to the region of my lower pelvis and that surgery would be very difficult and that my prostate, bladder, rectum would likely need to be removed. Per a recommendation from a close friend, I contacted Dr Dattoli's office. Several days later, Dr Dattoli telephoned me and spent over an hour discussing my case. He had treated many patients similar to myself. My initial sense was that he was very caring and passionate about how he treats his patients. and comes up with a "plan". I finally saw Dr Dattoli at his Cancer Center about 6-7 weeks later. He immediately stated "I've been thinking about your case and I also reached out to colleagues who I have great respect ". I was thinking to myself "wow, this doctor didn't even know that I would end up seeing him, but had divested significant time thinking about my case". He ultimately came up with a plan utilizing DART (the most precise form of radiation developed by Dr Dattoli and his team) and that I needed to be treated in the AM and PM daily to maximize the effect while avoiding complications. I also had seeding. Well 5 years later, not only am I free of cancer, but I lack any of the side effects that other esteemed Oncologists told me that I would experience. Dr Dattoli is truly amazing!!
NOT EVEN A FLAW...
Self-verified patient of Dr. Michael J Dattoli - Posted on March 28th, 2018
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Dr Dattoli and his well assembled team in beautiful Sarasota, Florida. While in the patient lounge, I was comforted when I encountered so many other other men who were treated while in in their 40's (like myself) and who were free of their cancers recurring for a very long time (5-20 years!). Many had far more aggressive cancers than myself. Quality of life is fortunately another aspect of treatment that Dr Dattoli holds in high regard and true to form, I went unscathed through the entire treatment process (and beyond) without incontinence and having excellent sexual function. Prior to treatment, I had done considerable research including at the world's leading medical centers. This was also a common theme I heard from others who ultimately chose Dattoli. I am glad I did!
