Dr Abad is a caring physician prone to being cautious in his diagnosis and treatment protocols. He is responsive on the portal and arranges quick appointments when needed unexpectedly. Unfortunately, he is seemingly supported in the neuro-oncology unit by two of the most disgruntled and lazy employees encountered at Roswell in years of tx there. This poor staffing impacts the visit experience. Luckily, the unit has multiple staff that are more in line with usual Roswell standards.

Dr. Abad took great care of my sister. She was always very comfortable talking to him and asking him questions. He would take time out of his busy day just to check in with her and to sit and talk to her. He was with us through the hardest time of our lives, and he guided my sister and our parents through difficult medical decisions with patience. He is very knowledgeable and friendly, I would strongly recommend him to family and friends.
