I feel exceptionally blessed that I get to be treated by Dr. Gamboa and his staff. He is knowledgeable, yet comforting. He explained my cancer and treatment plan and gave me confidence that I will eventually be cured. His entire staff work well together - they are a fantastic team.

When I developed blood clots and was diagnosed at the 395 Emergency Bldg, I needed someone to help me understand the reason behind my situation and Dr. Gamboa is giving me full blood tests and apmnts to determine what my future holds for treatments, etc. I'm super impressed with his knowledge and attention to my needs.

Most recent appointment had an extraordinary wait time. Seemed that my appointment was somehow dropped and therefore I was "squeezed in". Arrived for labs 1 hr prior to appointment and then checked in for the appointment 45 minutes prior to time. Had to inquire 30 minutes after appointment time when it was time for infusion. Infusion was canceled but i wonder if they canceled due to scheduling conflicts or was truly necessary. Dr. seemed somewhat rushed perhaps trying to get back on schedule.

dr Gamboa does not spend enough time - it's as if he is in a hurry to get out of the room but it takes time for him to get into the room - he has ordered other tests with other doctors but never let us know - never listens or talks to my wife/care giver which is not acceptable [...]
100

03/04/2019
Dr. Gamboa is understanding, very nice in a respectful proffessional way, makes time to break the ice with his positive attitude, shows support and answers my questions. Dr. Gamboa does listening and he does care! I am grateful!

Dr. Gamboa is a blessing to both me and my wife. We couldn't ask for anything better.
 

10/03/2018
He was extremely rude and seemed to not care about any of my concerns. He wouldn't answer all of my questions about my cancer. On top of that, he cut me off and said his next patient was there and got up and left. I'm trying to see a different provider
