Review of Dr. Sheh

-

I was under Dr. Sheh's care in 2015- 2017, when I was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer, which had metastasized to my liver. I am now clear of cancer, and I feel I owe my good health and my life to Dr. Sheh and Dr. Pham. I am so grateful and want to thank you, Dr. Sheh, for all you did for me. A thank you is not at all enough!!

Review of Dr. Man

- in Santa Cruz mtns., CA |

My wife was diagnosed with stage 3.5 Metastatic Breast Cancer in Aug 2006. Dr. Man had just joined Southbay Oncology Hematology Partners in September 2006 and I believe it was Karma that we chose her to begin the fight for life. I cannot express in these few words the care my wife received throughout her treatments and surgery (Dr. Bertelsen got all the cancer! Bless his heart to this day!) My wife is doing great, as of 1-2019 now and continues with yearly visits to Dr Man. She is the best!!!

Review of Dr. Chen

- |

Dr. May Chen has very deep and vast knowledge in the cancer area. Asides from being an excellent physician, she is also a very caring and compassionate doctor. Dr. Chen is priceless and worthy of being a physician member of the great Stanford Cancer Medical Center. I am very blessed to be her patient and will be forever grateful to her wonderful and compassionate care.

Review of Dr. Chen

- in San Jose, CA |

Dr. Chen, is a wonderful doctor. He is very patient and always listens. He knows your history and is always up to date on what you need. I’ve had cancer for 17 years. My last doctor retired. I am so lucky to have found Dr. Chen. I totally trust him and know I’m in good hands.

Review of Dr. Cabebe

- in San Jose, CA |

Dr. Cabebe took me through Stage 3A Breast Cancer - 6 years later I am cancer free. 4 years ago I was diagnosed with Stage 3A NSCLC. While my prognosis was not good at the time, today, I am Cancer free. I can not recommend Dr Cabebe highly enough. I have heard it said, you don't care how much they know, until you see how much they care. My entire family feels a deep gratitude for Dr Cabebe and his entire Staff.

Review of Dr. Galatin

-San Jose, CA |

I was visiting from out of state and needed a transfusion to manage my Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS). I was referred to Dr Galatin at Stanford. Even with orders from my doctor, Galatin initially refused treatment and lectured me on why my treatment modality was incorrect. He hadn't reviewed my records, doesn't specialize in MDS (a rare disease) and hasn't published any research on it. His style was the antithesis of patient-centered care. I definitely won't use Stanford Hospital again.

Review of Dr. Cabebe

-Los Angeles, CA |

First and far most I am writing this review for Dr.Cabebe. Well to start off dr.cabebe was my mom's oncologist. . I definitely do not recommend anyone to have him as an oncologist. He is the worst doctor. He diagnosed my mom with stage 4 lung cancer.when he came in the room to give us the bad news he tells my mom ( you have stage 4 lung cancer ok I am not going to sugar coat it for you ) my mom was devastated.he gave her no hope.so we changed oncologistoncologist and are extremely satisfied

Review of Dr. Chen

- in Los Gatos, CA |

Dr. Chen is a consummate professional, kind, caring and patient. He's my Mom's oncologist and explains things so she and my Dad can understand. He listens to HER wishes, and my questions, (also medical professional), and is the best. Thank you, Dr. Chen.

Review of Dr. Cabebe

-Los Gatos, CA |

He doesn't think outside of the box, doesn't believe in alternative forms of cancer treatments. BTW: Many people and some doctors now admit Chemo and radiation may cause more deaths then cancer.
