Specialties

Dr. Ruben D Fabrega has the following 3 specialties

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • Hematology & Oncology
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Fabrega saw my husband for his blood problems during his hospital stay and I cannot say enough good things about him. He is caring, thoughtful and carries through. He came in every morning sharp at 6:30 AM, made sure all labs were done, knew the history and was very, very caring.

Excellent Oncologist

when one is diagnosed with Stage IV cancer, I was very lucky to find Dr. Fabrega. I can't think of anyone else I would be more comfortable in having my life in his hands. He is honest, straightforward, caring, and understanding.
