My fiance was treated by Dr. Bibawi. He was not compassionate or caring. He was just seeing my fiance as a number and was following the treatment template without any creativity. It was just a job for him. He was not current on clinical trials and was not open to patient's comments or requests. He was always telling my fiance he have 3 mths to live without treatment and 6-9 mths to leave with treatment. He is the worst oncologist. He refused to order a pet scan for my fiance. He made him wait for 5mths. By then the cancer spread everywhere. He is not proactive with the disease. Based on his attitude, my fiance fired him and went to another doctor who was open, compassionate, caring and up to date on the various clinical trials.

My mother has been a patient of Bibawi's for two years. In the last six months she has developed major dementia and we can't figure out why. She is still receiving chemo and getting scans every six weeks. He recently sent her to the emergency room and I wanted to discuss the tests that were run with him as well as request a liver specialist. I have put in two messages and have waited two weeks without a response. Suddenly he is too busy to care to return a simple call. We're being completely ignored and we don't understand what is going on.

Dr. Bibawi first diagnosed my blood cancer back in 2015. I began chemotherapy in August 2020 when my blood count got to a dangerous level. When I asked Dr. B about any side effects from the oral chemo medicine I was prescribed, he said there wasn't any... however, when I later reviewed the medication, I found 50% of patients experience an enlarged spleen. I was disappointed that I was not told about that and other potential side effects that can be alarming. Also, perhaps just because he has too many patients?, the Patient Portal questions do not get answered. I tried calling and asking his nurse, and she did return my call -- but when I asked 2 additional questions, I never received any answers. I'm sure he is very knowledgeable and quite good, being D Magazine's SUPER Doctor, just disappointed I cannot get responses to questions.

I began chemo treatments with Dr Bibawibi March, 2020. I regularly met with Dr B weekly for about 5 weeks. During those meetings he always answered all my questions and was always concerned about how I was feeling, my weight , etc. I did surprisingly well with the treatment (and the radiation). I was not sick and felt reasonably good until the last ten days when I lost most of my hair and tiredness set in , which Dr B said to expect. His staff was always courteous and caring. I would highly recommend Dr Bibawibi and appreciate what he did for me.

Dr Bibawi has been the reason I was able to handle my cancer diagnosis. He was in my hospital room every day around 4:30 to check on me. He has explained everything to me in terms that I can understand and does not rush me if I have questions for him. This is such a scary time in your life when you hear these words CANCER so it definetly helps when you have someone as compassionate in your corner to see you through these difficult times as Dr. Bibawi. I do recommend him as you go thru this..

Dr. Bibawi is an amazing Doctor! I was so scared that day, but he put me at ease and explained so much to me. He saw me 3 months later, then 6 months, then went to a year. This last visit he has now released me for 2 years. Thank YOU Dr. Bibawi as you put all the fears to rest and I was able to put 100% trust in you. YOUR staff and you are #1 to me!! HE Is so good I made sure my sister is a patient of his too.

I have a blood disorder known as Factor V Leiden. Dr. Bibawi has been helping me deal with this for almost ten years. Then, in 2013 my husband developed esophageal cancer. Dr. Bibawi treated him along with radiation therapy, and he recovered. He has been cancer free for five years. We trust Dr. Bibawi with our lives. Not only is he a wonderful and effective doctor, he is a kind and gentle man who truly cares for his patients. Love him!!

Dr. Bibawi, Dr. Derose, and their staff diagnosed and treated my very rare cancer in 2013. At 5 years, I am cancer free. They treated me with excellent medical and emotional support. Everything from friendly greetings, hugs, art therapy, and massage were available each time I went in for treatment or follow up care. They offer the latest protocols, and can answer all questions you may have. I highly recommend Richardson Cancer Center and Dr. Bibawi.

I have been going to Dr. Bibawi for about 3 years now. I first go for a lab test which literally takes 15 minutes. I am always taken within 15 minutes. Never had to wait. After a couple of days I meet with Dr. Bibawi who is always compassionate of my condition and always with a smile on his face. He is very knowledgeable and I trust his diagnosis and recommendations. I would highly recommend Dr. Bibawi to any of my family or friends.
