Program: Radiation Oncology

Overview

Cancer Focus: Anal Cancer, Esophageal Cancer, Gastrointestinal Carcinoid Tumor, Pancreatic Cancer, Rectal Cancer

Dr. Russell Palm is an Assistant Member in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Moffitt Cancer Center. Dr. Palm received his MD from University of Toledo College of Medicine and most recently completed a Radiation Oncology Residency at Moffitt Cancer Center/University of South Florida. Dr. Palm’s clinical expertise involves use of radiation therapy to treat patients with esophageal, gastric, hepatobiliary, pancreatic, rectal, and anal cancers. Dr. Palm’s research aims include: improving patient selection to safely allow for organ preservation through imaging or biological markers predictive of tumor response, integrating immunotherapy and radiosensitizers in the definitive treatment of gastrointestinal cancers, and optimizing care for patients with oligometastatic disease.

Patient Comments
Overall Satisfaction
5

21 patients rated this provider

The Provider Rating is an average of all responses to specific care provider-related questions from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. These surveys assess the experience of our patients when visiting us for an Outpatient Clinic, Urgent Care or Virtual Health (Telemedicine) visit. 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 ()

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.

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.
