      Dr. Labban has been treating me for 5 years through two bouts of peritoneal cancer, two rounds of chemo, and I wouldn’t trade him! He is kind, compassionate, honest, and funny. He stays current on the latest treatment options and truly cares about his patients’ well-being. In fact my husband was originally referred to another hematologist for his blood cancer and switched to Dr. Labban specifically because he knew him to be more caring and invested in his patients.

      In 2007 I was diagnosed with Gr. 1 invasive ductal carcinoma and treated with lumpectomy followed by radiation. Dr Labban had to work to gain my confidence after my initial oncologist, Dr. Jim Cohen, relocated to Arizona. Today I am happy to be in Dr. Labban’s care. He has made adjustments in my follow up care over the years as secondary breast issues have arisen requiring MRIs, ultrasounds, and biopsies. Dr. Labban’s office manner is direct, yet he is willing to listen, which is appreciated.

      Radiologists identified blood clots on my lungs. My referring physician recommended me to Dr. Labban. I met him initially at the hospital in urgent care. Over the past approximate year he has assumed primary control over my circulatory health and potential oncological issues. After numerous tests, scanning indicators, office visits, laboratory visits and interviews I have come to know him as a caring, competent physician within his selected specialities. He is highly recommended!
