I have had 2 colonoscopies as recommended by my G.P.... both contacts and appointments went as explained and performed. I am relatively healthy as is my wife and our interactions with the DR. and his staff have been positive and comfortable. The Dr. is personable and friendly with confident answers to our questions and reasonable support information to satisfy those concerns. We wish him and his staff continued success in their practice. We will see you again as planned and or needed. Thanks

I had 2 concurrent procedures yesterday. The appointment was at 7:45 AM but I arrived about 20 minutes early... Everything was done by 8:45 AM, I was out the door shortly thereafter. Dr. Abousaif is no stranger to my husband and me, having taken good care of us in the past, and I don't need to tell you about the level of trust we keep in him. Everyone else, from the front desk at the Surgical Center to my attending nurses were so nice I didn't even want to go home!

Dr. Abousaif is very personable and takes the time necessary to explain what you are experiencing, why and what can be done to help remedy the situation. It is often changes in your diet in addition to medications, if necessary. He doesn't just load you up on medications and say "Good Bye".

Dr Abousaif is great. His staff is less than impressive. They won't answer phones when you call. They are less than helpful when you are in the office. They give you conflicting instructions than the Dr. The Dr is only as good as his staff, and that is not good.

Dr. Abousaif is more than just a gastrointestinalIstanbul, he will help you through anything. He was amazing with my disabled son who is 29 with the mental capacity of a 1 year old. He has been my gastrinterologist for over 5 years now and yet also helped me cope with other issues like worries of DMT. Would recommend him to all.
