Dr. Ricardo E Estape has the following 2 specialties
- Gynecologic Oncology
Gynecologic oncologists specialize in cancers that occur in the female reproductive system. This includes ovarian cancer, cervical cancer and endometrial cancer, as well as the less commonly talked about female reproductive cancers like vulvar cancer, vaginal cancer and fallopian tube cancer.
In addition to diagnosing the stage of your cancer and recommending treatment options, they’ll provide care throughout your treatment and help you manage your symptoms. They’ll often work closely with a pathologist and a radiologist to properly diagnose you and determine if your cancer is shrinking or spreading throughout treatment. They’re even trained to administer chemotherapy and to perform surgery to remove cancer when necessary.

Dr. Estape and his satff are wonderful, I'm just recovering from my partial laparoscopic hysterectomy and I feel excellent. Nothing compared to an open surgery. The incisions are very small, just a little bit of pain, but that's normal. Best doctor ever. The staff at Larkin Hospital is great too. Thank you !!!!!!!!!
Dr Estape has been a blessing in my life.He did a laparoscopic surgery and I only have a very tiny scars.He and Dr Diaz are very caring and proffesionals doctors.Also in the appoitments he explain everything to me and answered all my questions. The staff is awsome,all of them are nice and caring too.I can't asked for more,they are blessing my life in this hard time where cancer is a day day to day reality.Thanks to Dr Estape I can face my future with hope.God bless him, Dr Diaz and the staff.
Dr Estape and dr partner john diaz are awesomeness!!!! They are very knowledgeable, courteous , and empathetic. They take the time to answer any questions you have and they are very patient!!!!! Most of the office staff is very nice except for one of the nurse technicians, her name is MIRTHA. She is rude, cocky, unempathetic and unprofessional. She needs to be taught a lot of patient care lessons, including bed side manners. I can't believe how such an unprofessional and uncompassionate employee can work amongst such a nice and professional group of people. She should be fired!!!! Dr Estape and Dr Diaz , thank you for caring and being awesomeness!!!! God bless you : )
I just would like to think this doctor for correcting my issue caused by another doctor. He took the time to get to know me as a person, and valued my opinion about my health issue. He made it possible for me to still have the privilege of conceiving again. Thanks for being understanding and welcoming. God bless you and your family. :)
