I don't know whether he doesn't care or whether he just does not have the time to care.
He does not like being challenged with questions and gives you his cell phone and says to call anytime yet won't sit in front of you to talk about your cancer.
Very odd.
I felt uncomfortale and decided not to have him be my docor.
I need face to face communication when it comes to my health, especially when it is life threatening like cancer.

I was shocked by the abrupt treatment I received from this doctor. He did not exam me and spent about 5 minutes with me and then ordered a bunch of tests i did not need.
I checked into his reputation and found out he bribes doctors to send him patients by sending them a case of wine when they send a patient to him.
I fired him and the doctor who sent me to Dr. Cecchi.
I want a doctor who only sends me to the best.

"Just recently completed six months of treatment with Dr. Ceechi and his staff. Everyone was exceptional in taking care of me. Dr. Ceechi made sure in a no nonsense approach that I received the best care for my diagnosis. Even when I first started out and while sitting in the waiting room, I met other patients who had been with him for years (based on their personal diagnosis) and they felt confident he was taking good care of them. This reassured me to move forward and glad I did! I am now cancer free through Chemotherapy and could not be more grateful. Many thanks. Dr. Ceechi did not diagnos me but came highly recommended by the physician who did. From my point of view, Dr. Ceechi and his staff have a great reputation and live up to it. "

This doctor did not have any time for me and did not answer my questions. I was very disappointed with his office and him.
i checked with my family doctor as well as my other doctors and found out he is not highly regarded by his peers.
He tried to convince me to get chemo for my breast cancer and I asked for the Oncotype test that showed i didn't need chemo.
I left for a doctor with integrity.

Read consumer reports about doctors like this guy:

Your doctor as salesman-dubious practice if he is charging for the vitamins.

Dr. Cecchi spent very little time with me and refused to address my concerns. He appreared more interested in his E-mails and personal life than in his medical practice. He is not detail oriented which made me very worried since he did not know my history despite my records being right in front of him. I did not feel confident he even cared about me or my cancer and sought a second opinion and changed doctors. I would not recommend Dr. Cecchi-he just doesn't care.

i had a similar experience to jil C. Dr. cecchi did not use his iphone to look up medical information. My husband came with me and said he was reading his e-mails during our brief consult. I felt very ignored. he did not want to answer my questions about why i needed chemotherapy for an early stage breast cancer. I sought a second opinion and had an Oncotype DX done on my cancer and was low risk. Dr. cecchi was wrong, chemotherapy would not be of benefit to me. I did not go back to him. i would not recommend him to my family and friends.

I have appreciated the care I have received from Dr. Cecchi and staff. I normally don't write these reviews, however, that other lady is NOT correct. Dr. Cecchi is direct, but he is informed, and constantly doing research for both therapies. I feel confident in his decision, even if he uses his iphone to look something up. That is what technology is for.
I also ELECTED to test the current vitamins I had been taking and was surprised to find, it wasn't working. I was spending almost $130/month before, now I have saved $30.00 a month since taking the prescription kind he recommended. I have more energy after my chemo treatments and take less naps. Plus I can even do my laundry.

Stay away from this doctor! He plays on his iphone right in front of you and barely spends 5 minutes with you and then hands you off to a nurse who tries to get you to buy Dr. cecchi's vitamins. i couldn;'t believe this was happening to me at my first visit for my cancer. It turns out he is running a NuSkin pyramid scam and personally profits off the vitamins his staff tries to sell you for over $100/month. i ran from that office and found a medical oncologist who cares about me and has the time to explain the chemotherapy to me.
