Staff and/or doctor were not responsive to calls from me or from pharmacies. Staff made promises that were not kept. Even voice mails were not responded to. Their inaction caused a delay in an important surgery. I would not recommend him.

Not good! It is about our brother. He failed to tell my brother that he needs to see him after a week to follow-up after getting radiation, to see if there was a side effect on the radiation treatment. We told him that my brother was getting sick and feeling very weak. Dr. Nabong sometimes, let his assistant see us instead of him. He did not show concern on what was going on with my brother. Dr. Nabong failed to constantly check on my brother. The way we were treated, very discriminating with patient who was dying. Being my brother's POA, i regret that I agreed on this doctor's recommendation. My brother became so ill during the radiation, lost a lot of weight, and the cancer spread/mestasized. Before getting this radiation, my brother was okay, he had good appetite, he ate well, and according to the medical records, his surgeon who operated him, his cancer did not mestasized. The radiation was recommended by this oncologist. The family give him just zero star.

Dr Nabong was the oncologist of my brother who was diagnosed of stage 1 pancreatic cancer. After the surgery he failed to follow up on the status of his condition. He left his office assistant to communicate with us . He was too busy it seemed on more patient more money. So if you are making a decision to find the right Oncologist for you or your love one. You may want to look for someone who is compassionate, caring to his patients and most of all excellent to his profession. He has a phony to zero compassion. To him cancer is death . Why bother attitude!

We took my mother to see him about 15 yrs ago. It was thought she may have had Multiple Myeloma. Fortunately, she did not. Dr. Nabong is expert in his field & I was struck also with his kindness & caring. I would highly recommend this doctor. 5 stars? Absolutely!
