Dr Abando is the BEST!! I had surgery to remove part of my colon due to diverticulitis. Dr. Abando very personable and caring, explained procedure and what to expect. I would definitely recommend him to family and friends. Porcia, his assistant was awesome too. Great experience.

I am 9 days post surgery. Dr. Abando and his staff made the entire process of the surgery very smooth. They are a very professional and friendly team and truly care about your health. Dr Abando came highly recommended to me and I can see why. He is the go to in Central Texas. Thank you Dr Abando and Cedar Park Surgeons staff!

Dr Abando is a caring physician that is great at explaining care and procedures. His bedside manner is comforting and is an excellent communicator. He followed up with my other physicians post surgery promptly. I was comforted by his bright personality as well as his friendly staff.

Excellent bedside manner, great communications, wonderful experience all the way through surgery. Dr. Abandoned will remain our go to surgeon in our future!

Our experience with Dr Abando has been terrific -- we found him to be knowledgable, personable, interested and upbeat, but serious when appropriate. He performed hernia repair surgery, on my 80 year old husband, which went smoothly and according to plan. His recovery was without any problems. The office staff is very professional and efficient; with particular mention of Portia, who was very friendly and helpful -- explained the pre and post operative situation very clearly. Thanks to all!

Long wait times for scheduled appointments, rude office staff, laissez faire approach to patient concerns
in Austin, TX |
Dr. Abando may be a great Doctor / Surgeon but his practice is horribly mis-managed by a staff that consistently fails to engender a good doctor/patient relationship. The office staff are not friendly, considerate or efficient at anything other than collecting fees and co-pays. EVERY time I have been to see Dr. Abando, I have been kept waiting at least a half an hour. Dr. Abando is a warm, genuine person but the people running his practice probably do not do him justice.
