Dr. Blaya is one of the most caring and dedicated doctors i have been associated with. He has a great bedside manner and is extremely knowledgable. He makes you feel at ease for a rather difficult appointment! I am thankful to have him as my breast ongologist!!

Dr. Blaya is a kind and compassionate doctor.My mother was having several complications due to chemo and bleeding hemorrhoids. Her onc repeatedly sent her to the ER to have blood transfusions, but ignored the source of the bleeding.Dr. Blaya stepped in and in an aggressive but caring manner informed her she needed hemorrhoidectomy. I believe he's the only doctor in this group with a heart. During her last days of life, he stopped what he was doing in the hall to show emotional support. TY
