General Comments

Dr. Diaz was recommended by Dr. Miercourt (see other reviews on him before choosing). Initially, Dr. Diaz seemed nice, and he listened when the family spoke. He didnt seem to rush the family through the appointments. Slowly, the attentiveness began to fade. He had a female assistant who was kind and nice but the family started to see less and less of the doctor and more of her. The patients condition worsened with each visit, yet they still didnt see much of the doctor. Even though it was not stated plainly to the family, Dr. Diaz supposedly knew the cancer was incurable, yet he pushed a chemo pill when chemo had not worked previously at Moffitt AND when radiation HAD worked successfully. In fact, the family had returned to their radiation oncologist (Dr. Miercourt) for more radiation, but Dr. Diaz had argued with the other doctor about doing it, and instead of listening to the familys wishes, Dr. Miercourt gave in to Dr. Diaz, leading the family to believe there was an inducement of some sort between them. On what ended up being the last appointment with Dr. Diaz, the assistant had to go get him, and he admitted the patient to the hospital right away. The patient was in the hospital for a few days, and Dr. Diaz only stopped in ONCE, and he made sure to do it when the family was not there. He also lied to the patient about contacting the family. Another oncologist from the same group came in because the family had been complaining about the doctor (and the hospital staff didnt understand his absence, either), and he was more honest than the other had been. The family made quick work of getting the patient out of the hospital and back home where the patient could pass away in peace. Dr. Diaz didnt call after the patient was released to check on the condition. Instead, some two weeks later after the patient had died and the family was pulling in to the funeral home, the receptionist called, wanting to schedule a follow up. Dr. Diaz has little concern for his patients, and he proved it with not seeing the patient on scheduled appointment times, not bothering to visit his own patient while in the hospital, not checking on them when they left and, consequently, having no idea that the patient had died and having the receptionist try to make another appointment. He is not recommended. The patient died a couple weeks after leaving the hospital.
