Saw his PA. He went against everything we requested so surgery appointment was cancelled by me. I didn’t feel like I could trust him at all doing a procedure

After my follow up visit with Dr.Abbassi after my colonoscopy, I was left with no information and was rushed out of his office. He came across cocky and interrupted many of my questions. I was experiencing extreme symptoms of weight loss, pain, and much more. He did not listen to anything I had to say and said he would see me in 6 weeks. The next day I was in the ER, admitted to the hospital and ended up staying their for 5 weeks. Dr. Abbassi visited new in the hospital and told me that the excruciating pain was in my head, he saw no reason for me being in the hospital and I should be discharged immediately. After disagreeing and firing Dr. Abbassi a couple days later he barged into my room (knowing he was let go) asking medical questions and was disrespectful to me and my mother. Less than 2 weeks from seeing Dr. Abbassi at our original follow up appointment I had to have emergency surgery.My colon had become distended and was days away from rupturing. I would be dead with Dr.Abbassi.

The first visit went well. I felt like he heard me when other GI doctors wanted to label me with IBS. He ordered tests that no one else ordered and really appeared to care and want to get to the bottom of what was going on. After my endoscopy and colonoscopy came back relatively normal but my blood work showed abnormalities, he wanted to do a capsule endoscopy but my insurance will not approve it unless I have GI bleeding. I have not heard from him since March and my condition is not improving. He has basically abandoned me and I have hit a wall with him. Also, after only my 2nd office visit, I felt like he was giving up on me because he said that I wasn't severe enough and it was probably "just IBS" like all the other doctors have called it. He reneged on everything he said in our first visit. I went out to the car and broke down. I am very unhappy that he hasn't suggested any alternative tests. I cannot afford the capsule endoscopy out-of-pocket because I'm not working.

Dr. Abbassi was so helpful when my mother was in the hospital. During a very stressful time he helped to ease the stress by having a handle on the medical issues. He was so knowledgeable and his bedside manner is excellent! His staff is wonderful as well! I called to schedule a follow up appointment and Katie helped me even though I called the wrong office! I would absolutely recommend him!
