“Dr. Jablons saved my life! Kaiser said I was unable to get an operation, stage 3b lung cancer. He operated 6 months later in 2010 and after 4.5 years I’m still doing well, clean scans the last two years. I feel great thanks to Dr. Jablons. ”

“I went to the doctor and found out that I had 3 Nodules in my lung. Dr. Jablons successfully removed the tumor. He spent a lot of time with me and was very nice. My family and I appreciate him very much for everything he has done for me.”

“Dr. Jablons is simply the best! I often teased him by saying he was the “2 minute doctor” for appointments. In his defense UCSF clinic is a very busy place where the time for patients is limited. I must say that his 2 minutes where more valuable than other doctor’s 20 minutes because of his knowledge and skill. He also has a good sense of humor and I would recommend him to anyone who needs a lung cancer surgeon.”

“He was great and he told us exactly how the surgery went, the outcome, the problems the patient had after surgery and what he needs to do when he gets back home. He dedicated most of his time to us without rushing because he always wanted to make sure we understood everything. All the other doctors that worked with him before and after the surgery were very caring. ”
