Provider Reviews

The overall staff was extremely pleasant and helpful and Dr. Abboud was not only pleasant but she also did an excellent job in putting me at ease for the procedure she had to perform on me. She also took time to speak with my wife and I. I truly hope I can have her assigned as my ENT Specialist.
