Diligent and thorough

Dr. Boccia was very creative in finding a way to convince my insurance company to cover preventive treatment for breast cancer, which runs in my family (2 sisters have had breast cancer). I haven't had treatment from him other than twice yearly checkups while on a 5-year drug regimen, but he is efficient and personable in those exams and I will always appreciate what he did to help me get this treatment!

Mom died under his care

This office is basically a factory. You will not see the doctor just the aides who administer the drugs. There is no one following up with your care. Chemo is the only option you are given. You will be completely on your own. Not sure why this place and Dr. Boccia is recommended. There are so many better, more involved doctors to go to! My Mom died while under his care and he didn't even bat an eye! They also misdiagnosed her, messed up labs which delayed care, made her go through multiple, painful biopsies for the sake of their "research", never told the family what was going on. He's also often "out of town".

My Miracle Doctor

I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2002. I lived in Baltimore at the time, and the doctors there gave me little hope. They knew I was going to move to Montgomery County to be with my family and recommended Dr. Boccia. I will always be grateful to them for that. Doctor Boccia told me he would try everything he could and would never give up on me. He gave me back the hope I had lost. I wouldn't be here today without his expert and compassionate care. He is a true blessing to his patients!

No one better

One couldn't expect any better level of service or care. A truly highly qualified and caring service provider. The Suburban Cancer Clinic also has some of the best staff we've worked with.

Clearly one of the best oncologists and staff

Dr. Boccia handled my wife's care for a particularly aggressive form of recurrent, metastatic cancer. He did so very professionally, and provided her with a level of professional care that made her remaining months very comfortable. She had a high level of confidence in his manner and approach. Our family highly recommends Dr. Boccia and his staff.

This doctor was put on earth to do battle against cancer!

Very few people become and excel what they were meant to be, but Dr. Boccia is not one of these... He never gives up, has a brilliant mind, knows of all the latest treatments (might be doing trials himself on latest) and is the best. I was diagnosed Stage IV 7 years ago and doing great! If it's hard to get an appt with him, it's because he's keeping his patients alive!!!
