Trusted by HealthBanks (Also Known as Pacificord) Families
Dr. Afshin Eli Gabayan, MD
“Recent technological advances in medicine have opened up many potential therapeutic options available presently and many more will become available in the future. The field of cancer treatment has been revolutionized with immunotherapy and with cell therapeutics such as CAR-T. Some of these new technologies can be applied not only to fight cancer but also for many other diseases. Preserving healthy and young immune cells prepares us to take advantage of the rapid technological advancements in the cell and gene therapy field. HealthBanks is pioneering the adult immune cell banking industry that offers such services with its automated technology. I recommend individuals who are focused on their health and wellness to consider preserving their immune cells as a biological insurance to protect their future well-being. Given the rapidly progressing advances in this area and the different and expanding applications, it is very exciting for me to recommend immune cell banking.“

"The biggest factor for me is I am not biologically related to the child, if anything ever happened, I wouldn’t be a donor match. We banked our child’s cord blood to make sure we were covered."
Dr. Max Jen, MD
Though I'm the physician in the family, it was actually my wife who introduced me to Healthbanks and CAR T-cell banking. Suffering some regret that we weren't able to bank our newborn son's umbilical stem cells due to issues with our hospital, my wife stumbled upon CAR T-cells as a way to bank our cells in the present to treat potential future cancers and other maladies. We were excited to learn that while CAR-T cell therapy is already FDA-approved to successfully treat a variety of liquid cancers (e.g. lymphomas, leukemias) with incredibly low recurrence rates, there are also literally hundreds of CAR-T research trials currently underway designed to treat many other sorts of cancers including colorectal cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, and lung cancer. We signed up with Healthbanks immediately to have our CAR T-cells banked (we also got to enjoy a couple discount) and plan to do so with our son's as soon as his immune system is fully developed. CAR-T cell banking with Healthbanks was quick and easy. We headed over to one of their partner collection sites, had our blood collected, and were finished in about 30 minutes. As an included bonus, Healthbanks also returned to us our PRP (platelet-rich plasma), a by-product of the CAR-T banking process, which can be used for a variety of anti-aging treatments including arthritis therapy, hair restoration, and microneedling facials. Basically, you get a nice little prize today even as you assure your future. I'd recommend CAR-T cell banking for everyone and especially for those who are young and whose immune systems are still in their prime as this is when your CAR-T cells are most healthy and potent. Collection is easy, the prices are very reasonable, and the applications for CAR-T cell therapy only continues to expand. Thanks Healthbanks!
"I choose to preserve my immune cells because of family history of cancer, and the opportunity for addressing future chronic illnesses. Benefits would be like hedging / insurance against chronic illness which is the main cause of death for my age group. HealthBanks is very professional, have very experienced staff and their technology is proven and advanced. I would recommend their service first for my children, for my next set of grandchildren children, my friends and all my customers at my clinic." – Charles Sine, CEO Anti-Fragility Health
"HealthBanks is the way to go! We decided at last minute, and a representative actually met us at a Christmas tree lot with the collection kit just the night before our boy was born. Talk about convenience and customer service! I recommend HealthBanks blood to anyone thinking of banking their baby's cord blood stem cells. Thank you so much! You truly are a lifesaver!!!"
Charles C. Chan, MD, FACOG
"There are currently over 3,000 clinical trials using stem cells underway around the globe today. Only one treatment was available 22 years ago, but today there are nearly 80 different diseases that can be treated using cord blood stem cells. The research continues to grow as researchers, scientists and physicians are learning more and more about the capabilities of cord blood stem cells every day."
Mary Kauszler Schindel, CNM
"As a Certified Nurse Midwife and mother, I see the great value in cord blood banking, and I am grateful for the opportunity to bank my baby's blood with HealthBanks. The stem cells in cord blood have the potential to grow into any tissue type within the body and to treat a growing number of conditions and diseases. Should these cells be needed for transplant in the future, the method of processing, freezing, and storage of stem cells is critical to the success of the procedure. HealthBanks uses state of the art technology to achieve these ends with AXP™ processing and BioArchive® storage. I feel confident in their ability to maintain the health of my baby's stem cells."
Michael D. Andersen, MD, FACOG
"Stem cells not only have the potential to one day be turned into any tissue in the body, replacing diseased and damaged organs, and to treat conditions such as spinal cord injury, but they are now used to treat nearly 80 diseases today. I encourage every parent to bank their child's cord blood stem cells as "biological insurance" for their family, and to do so with a company that cares about the long-term storage of stem cells, like HealthBanks/Pacificord."
Neil, CJ & Baby Zac Engracia
"HealthBanks' process of storing our baby's cord blood stem cells is safer and more secure as compared to other cord blood banks, because, unlike other cord blood banks, there wouldn't be temperature fluctuations with the constant opening and closing of the cryogenic tanks. HealthBanks' free prenatal classes even helped prepare us for our first child. Our decision on going with HealthBanks was not only influenced by their technology, but it was the personal services and devotion of their staff that sealed the deal for us."
Scott Capobianco, MD
"Stem cell preservation is a large step forward in our genetic health. HealthBanks/PacifiCord is the leader in this technology."
"I was able to tour HealthBanks and was very satisfied with their overall service. My fiance and I were also delighted with the quality of HealthBanks' free prenatal classes. We choose to save our baby's cord blood, and to bank with HealthBanks."
James Neal, MD
"HealthBanks/PacifiCord uses the most advanced technology in the industry using the AXP™ processing and BioArchive® for storage. The combination of these two systems promises the healthiest stem cells if needed for future use. I highly recommend HealthBanks/PacifiCord to my patients."
"At the age of 21 years old, I went from being a carefree, independent young woman who was ready to conquer the world to one that was suddenly bound to a wheelchair due to a near-fatal car accident that left me a paraplegic. HealthBanks provides life, hope, and a future. The advantages of saving your baby's own cord blood is rich in life-saving possibilities. What better gift could you give than sustainable life for your child? May you always make the best choices as a parent as you guide your child to be the best he or she can be, and may saving your child's cord blood be one of the most important choices you ever make for your child. With one simple decision, you can provide the best gift to your child…"
Simona Istrate, CNM, RNFA, BSN
"My goal in life is to help improve the health of our community by bringing life into this world in the most natural way possible. Umbilical cord blood stem cells have the miraculous ability to renew themselves and give rise to multiple specialized cell types that can make up the heart, lung, skin and other tissues. HealthBanks is a shining star that is helping improve the long-term health and healing outlook for our community, and I am glad to be part of their effort to collect and preserve cord blood stem cells."
"Choosing to bank my child's cord blood with HealthBanks was a simple decision. HealthBanks uses the best technology in the industry today. They process the stem cells in the AXP™, which is the most sterile method and saves the most stem cells for storage. They also store the stem cells completely under liquid nitrogen within the BioArchive® system, which is the only system designed specifically for the storage of stem cells. With HealthBanks, I know that my family's stem cells are safely stored, should I ever need them."
"All of our storage questions were answered by HealthBanks' informed staff, and we are assured in the knowledge that our baby's blood is being stored in a state-of-the-art facility, taking the security of our blood seriously. Coupled with the immediate response time (our courier picked up the cord blood package before we left our labor and delivery suite) and the fantastic customer service, we feel we have made the right choice in selecting HealthBanks to bank our cord blood. I refer their service to all my expecting friends!"
Cyndi Gross, CPSS
"With other cord blood banks, the collection part has always been fairly uneventful. The actual pick up is usually very stressful for the couple, and sadly, the focus was more on that, than on the baby. At Catherine's birth, Steve called the HealthBanks' representative to let her know that his wife was in labor, and to give the representative the barcode from the collection kit. After the birth, Steve called again to let the HealthBanks' representative know that the collection kit was ready for pick up. That was it. No stress, no worry. It took 30 seconds to make that call. What I thought was great about HealthBanks was that the cord blood was not the main event...the birth of the baby was."
Angela Watson, CNM
"Thank you for the wonderful classes! My husband, Willie and I had welcomed our beautiful daughter, Everley Jane Watson, 6/5/10 @ 9:25pm, in the peaceful setting of our own home, in a birth tub, AND collected the cord blood! So grateful for HealthBanks' services!"
Kristi Henaghan, CNM, FNP, BSN
"After meeting my husband, who has cystic fibrosis, I found out that I was also a carrier of the disease. Discovering this information changed our entire thought process about having children. My husband and I believe in the importance of cord blood banking, especially due to the illness that has affected his life. There is research and progress being made daily to increase the number of diseases that can be treated using cord blood stem cells. Hopefully, one day, stem cells can treat all diseases that affect millions every day. HealthBanks is one of the leading companies in stem cell research, and I recommend this company to all of those that I encounter whom are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant."
Cristina Hernandez O'Day, MD
"We are so in love with our little PJ. I hate to think he could develop any grave illness in the future, but are reassured knowing that his cord blood is banked with HealthBanks should he need it. The representatives were knowledgeable and professional, and I wouldn't hesitate to use HealthBanks again in the future."
