Andreas Saltos, MD
Locations: Moffitt Cancer Center
Cancer Focus: Lung Cancer , Mesothelioma , Pancoast Tumor
Dr. Andreas Saltos earned his MD from the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore. He completed his Internal Medicine Residency at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore before moving to Tampa, where he completed a Hematology and Medical Oncology Fellowship at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine and Moffitt Cancer Center. Dr. Saltos specializes in the treatment of thoracic malignancies, including all forms and stages of lung cancer. In his clinical practice he strives to match patients with the optimal treatments that are tailored to their specific cancer and individual needs. The ability to work with an incredible cancer team and apply the latest advances to treat patients in the clinic is what makes him excited to work at Moffitt. He also dedicates a significant portion of his effort to research. His focus is in clinical research aiming to find better treatments for lung cancers, including using new strategies for targeted therapy and immunotherapy. He is currently leading and developing clinical trials investigating novel drugs or treatment combinations which either target the specific genetic features of lung cancers or recruit the immune system to combat cancer. One of Dr. Saltos’ favorite speeches is by Jim Valvano at the 1993 ESPY awards, which he delivered during his battle with cancer. He provides an insightful perspective on life and brings attention to the mission of cancer research; he closes with “Cancer can take away all my physical abilities. It cannot touch my mind, it cannot touch my heart and it cannot touch my soul. And those three things are going to carry on forever.”

The Provider Rating is an average of all responses to specific care provider-related questions from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive
different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Comments are gathered from specific care provider-related questions from our Patient Satisfaction Survey . The comments are submitted by patients and reflect their views and opinions. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and patient privacy.
We post both positive and negative comments from the surveys. We do not post comments that are libelous, slanderous, profane, irrelevant or otherwise inappropriate or may risk the privacy of our patients. A “[…]” in the comments below indicates de-identified patient information or comments that are unrelated to the patient’s experience with the visit to the provider, such as comments related to another provider, about the survey itself, or otherwise completely off-topic.
Not all providers will have a star rating or comments. In order to ensure accuracy of our ratings, we only display ratings for providers who have a minimum of 30 completed from the previous 12 months.Learn more about our patient comments
Provider Ratings and comments are gathered from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. If a provider does not have ratings or comments listed it can be for several reasons, including:
- The provider has not yet received the minimum number of patient satisfaction surveys to be eligible for display. We require a minimum of 30 surveys before we post results to ensure that the rating is statistically reliable and a true reflection of patient satisfaction.
- He or she may be a researcher or other type of provider that does not see patients.
- The provider practices in a specialty or office that does not use the specified surveys currently used for these ratings.
