    Dr. Rossi has treated more patients with proton therapy than any physician and all but a couple of proton therapy centers. His quality and volume of work has resulted in the clinical and financial justification that lead to the building of multiple proton therapy centers. Proton therapy would not be as accessible to patients today if it wasn’t for his dedication to his patients. It has been a honor to learn from him and work with him over the last 2 -1/2 decades.
