Gynecological Cancer Care team
Each patient at Sarasota Memorial Cancer Institute is matched with a team of specialists to leverage the full extent of the care providers’ experience and expertise in diagnosing and treating even the most challenging cancers. Patient care teams and care plans are specifically tailored to fit the needs, goals and case details of each patient.

Nationally recognized for advanced diagnostic and treatment techniques as well as his expansive research of gynecological cancers, Dr. Fiorica serves as medical director of the Women’s Cancer Research program at Sarasota Memorial.
Our gynecological cancer care teams include surgeons, diagnostic radiologists, interventional radiologists, medical and radiation oncologists, pathologists, oncology nurses, an oncology patient navigator, an oncology-certified social worker, palliative medicine specialists and a board-certified genetic counselor, as well as nurses, dietitians and clinicians who provide patient support.
