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.
Thank you for kind words. It is our pleasure to care for each of your family members. We thank you for taking the time to leave us such a wonderful review. It is so beneficial to others looking for the right GI doctor. We hope your experience with out doctors were all that you expected. Have a great day.

Never. The Dr himself was great, but his office staff and office hours are horrible. I can not get thru to the office as they never answer their phones! I've been on hold over 20 minutes, 3 different times and refuse to waste any more of my time on them. Their patients time is valuable also. I believe they forgot that. I also did not appreciate the mixed information from the Dr and the staff. And the fact that their credit card machine did not work, so all they would accept is cash.
Julie,We appreciate your feedback. Wait times are a recurring issue for us and we are working tire sly to reduce them. Please reach out the office to discuss any issues you may have had so we can better care for you in the future.

Dr Abousaif is the best, very caring and takes time with you. He answered all my questions and was super patient. He's had to perform multiple tests on me and always explained everything in layman's terms so I could understand it. I would & have recommended Dr. Abousaif to friends.

He is an awesome Dr.!!
Dr. Abousaif seems to genuinely care and spends the appropriate amount of time. However, the office lacks complete accountability and never returns a call. Left 3 messages yet never received a returned call. It is impossible to get beyond the appointment. The physician is good and caring. But you never get beyond an appointment. They are so busy that it's just a like an assembly line. And patient's are left to feel like we are bothering them. Office staff needs to improve.

I am so glad I found Dr. Abousaif as my Gastro Dr. He is always pleasant and listens to my concerns. He is a very knowledgeable and caring doctor. His manner is excellent! I would have highly recommended Dr. Abousaif to my family and friends.
