Dr. Bloomston is a native Floridian born in Tampa and raised in Ft. Myers. During his General Surgery training at the University of South Florida he spent 2 additional years doing basic science research focused on pancreatic cancer. He then moved to Columbus, Ohio where he completed additional training in Surgical Oncology at Ohio State University. He stayed at OSU for another 9 years where he became a tenured Associate Professor and served as the Surgical Oncology Fellowship Program Director and the Medical Director of the GI Cancer Service Line for The James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. Dr. Bloomston maintained a national presence during his academic career publishing over 170 peer-reviewed articles and serving on the NCI Neuroendocrine task force and the NCCN Hepatobiliary guidelines committee. He has been ranked in the top 10 percentile for patient satisfaction and has been considered one of the nation’s top doctors by US News and World Report and Castle-Connolly.

Dr. Bloomston returned home to Ft. Myers in August 2015 for the opportunity to care for patients with advanced GI cancers, particularly liver, pancreas, stomach, and esophagus. His experience in these complex cancers and the operations that they require provides the expertise for the Southwest Florida community which is usually only found in large academic centers.
