The staff is nice but it is a very disorganized operation. Warning that you need to be prepared for a 1.5-2 hour wait. The doctor is knowledgeable and is willing to explain issues with you without seeming rushed but the waiting room appears to be a factory line of patients.

Very poor patient service in the office. This is not a review of the doctor himself, but of the office in general. I traveled an hour and a half, only to find that the main piece of equipment I was scheduled to use was broken. The office assistant quite confidently affirmed and even argued that she called and spoke with me, on my own private number - Which did not happen at all. They did not accommodate me to get my results and still bill for incomplete services, and don't take e-payment.

Dr. Abid was wonderful!! Not to mention easy on the eyes!! :) He put me at ease regarding my upcoming operation and cleared me for surgery. One always hopes they will never need a cardiologist in their lifetime, but I know who to go to if I did! The staff was great! Thank you so much!!

Dr. Abid is an amazing cardiologist. He addressed all my concerns with patience and did not rush me. I felt so comfortable that I have found a doctor who understood every aspect of my condition. Dr. Abid and his staff are exceptional. I walked through the door and from that moment on, I was treated with respect and given full attention. I truly appreciate that most of the time I can get an appointment the same day or next day. He took his time to explain to me my heart condition on a chart.

?I was beyond impressed with my experience at this doctor?s office. My first contact was with the receptionist and I was completely blown away by how helpful and kind she was and how fast she was at getting back to me! The first point of contact is crucial! Now on to the appointment..my appointment ran on time, Dr.Abid was really knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable throughout the appointment! I would highly recommend this office!!!

Doctor is not personable, he's rude and only thinks of money ! Doesent spend adequate time with you and always behind never on time and wait is rediculous to see him after I get my ekg done... Changing doctors for sure! And front desk girl was mean and rude to my wife too when she went to ask regarding my wait time to see doctor!! Office manager isn't even there if you want to complain! Poorly ran office

The girl at the front desk was beyond rude and have heard plenty of complaints against her! I've had wonderful experiences with the girl in the back and she's always so tentative and running back and forth, they need more of her. I decided to change to another cardiologist too because this doctor is just rude and doesent explain things, no wonder he has that girl in the front desk. She is just like him!
