Dr. Fabrega is so kind and patient, he takes the time to hear your consider and explain things to you in a way that is not so devastating. When I first was diagnosed, he consoled me and told me everything was going to be okay and that science has come a long way in the treatment of cancer. I couldn't have asked for a better doctor. May God continue to bless him in all he do.
