in Boston, MA |
Four years ago, I was diagnosed with Melanoma and was referred to Dr. Tanabe. I was very comfortable with him the minute I met him. He was very personable and caring. He put me at ease and today I am totally healthy. I would refer him to anyone without hesitation.
in Mass |
I have had two surgeries in which dr Tanabe removed tumors from my liver. At both times he was very professional and informative to me and my family I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon as well as all the staff at MGH so thankful I was referred to him and would definitely refer him to anyone else
