Dr. Kolibaba is and extremely competent physician, and a very compassionate person. I have a follicular Non Hodgkins Lymphoma, and have found her care to be of the highest standard. I am recommending her to my family and friends.

She is the best and most thorough oncologist that I've had in 9 years that I've had multiple myeloma. Wouldn't change for anything.

Compass Oncology is not only the best cancer facility but is full of compassionate thorough on the ball people. I love all of them I can not say enough good things about Dr Kate . Kolababa. She is on task and current on research and provides an environment for personnel peace and allows spiritual reflection. When I got cancer the second time my first reaction is Kate and group will kill it . I never felt that I would die. That is confidence in your doctor the support system and the best facility

Only cared while my mom was alive... when mom passed, she never reached out.. seems her " care" was only a facade

Dr. Kolibaba is one of the best doctors I have ever encountered. She is empathic, validating, encouraging, and brilliant. When my insurance changed and I needed a second opinion, she was right there. I couldn't praise her enough for all she did for me and my family while I was battling cancer. She was my hemotologist at a young age, and I never knew I would need her as my oncologist too until it hit. I would trust her again and again.

Dr. Kolibaba is kind, compassionate and keeps up to date with the latest treatments. (Not an easy task as new advances happen all the time, fortunately!) I appreciated that she always placed an importance on quality of life issues, and treated me with respect. She is in high demand and never rushes through appointments, so you may wait a bit. She's worth it - Highly recommended. I'm 8 years cancer-free now (YAY!) from Stage 3 breast cancer, and she was an essential part of my team.
