Dr. Tibayan is a medical oncologist and hematologist at Comprehensive Cancer Centers of Nevada. Working with the multi-specialty practice, Dr. Tibayan will deliver the most current medical knowledge and treatment options to patients in Southern Nevada.
Prior to joining the practice, he held multiple positions with respected healthcare organizations in Garden City, Kansas. He served as principal investigator at the University of Kansas Cancer Center’s Midwest Cancer Alliance, enrolling patients for participation in major cancer clinical trials.

Dr. Tibayan likes to maintain a work-life balance. Whenever possible, he spends his time traveling locally and abroad with his family and friends. He enjoys exploring the beautiful national parks in the US and partaking in outdoor activities such as rafting, kayaking, hiking, cycling and horseback riding. A self-proclaimed foodie, he’s always on the lookout for the best cuisine and restaurants in town. When he is not traveling, he spends his time at home, reading and watching movies.
Through commitment, dedication and hard work, I would like to continue what I enjoy doing best, that is, providing comprehensive cancer care, improving patients’ quality of life, extending a helping hand and comfort to those who need it the most.
