All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Without a doubt, one of the best doctors in Boston. My wife was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer and Dr. Erban could not have been more professional, understanding and empathetic. I would and will recommend him to anyone that is in need of help regarding breast cancer or anyone looking for a second opinion. I simply can not say enough about this man and his expertise. There is a reason he is voted one of the best cancer doctors in Boston year after year!
