I've been calling their office but it's been busy the whole time. We had our colonoscopy way back 2015 but they haven't forwarded yet the result to our Primary Doctor. I am calling them so I can get the copy.

So dont know where to begin , my first intial appt i did not meet the doctor , the day of colonoscopy i had a very breif meeting , my husband said the doctor seemed rushed but told him what he found and his concern and that he would follow uo with a plan when he saw me next , so naturally i was concern and little worried about the pallops as well , my follow up appt no doctor ,PA was nice . waiting time 1 1/2 hours ,no plan PA did not have concerns about issue (unsolved). very dissappoited ,

He saved my life in 2016 while at Casa Colina Rehab following a right knee replacement. Day before I was to be discharged I developed a gastric bleed. I'm not sure when it became an emergency but When he arrived he completely took charge of a precarious (I think) situation. His presence & deameaner put me at ease at a time when i was wondering if that would be my last day. My family & I will forever be grateful to him.

I saw Dr. Abdelkarim a couple of weeks ago as I was complaining of an abdominal pain. he ordered some tests and one of them came out positive for H. Pylori. I found out about the result from hospital through a medical record account they created for me. no one from Dr. Abdelkarim's office bothered to call and let know about the positive result and to start the treatment. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone due to his unprofessional staff.

I actually saw his Physician Assistant, Ian Donahue, and he was great. Love the office decor and atmosphere (pictures of the doctor's families, rich mahogany wood furniture, elegant pictures in Waiting Area and in Exam Rooms). The Office Staff were very professional and helpful. Definitely a well run office, with not only Dr. Adbdelkarim, but other doctors and PAs to assist him and his patients.

I went in to this office due to chronic stomach pain. I saw Dr. Abdelkarim's PA Dr. Donahue and he was excellent! He made sure he expalined everything so I could understand it thoroughly and he gave me choices and options on to proceed with my care. I could not be happier that a doctor finally took my medical needs seriously after suffering for 12 years. I have full faith we will get this resolved. Thank you Dr. Donahue, you are EXCELLENT!

Very long wait in the waiting room (1-2 hours) and he spends very little time with the patient. He asks questions but doesn't listen to the answers. He didn't even ask onset, didn't bother to take the time to actually make me feel like he gives a crap. I hadn't seen him for many years and had forgotten just how insuggnicant he can make a patient feel. I am sure he's a talented doctor, but he lacks humanism!

First available appointment was 4 1/2 weeks out. I took it. Had test done and dr wanted follow up appt. I called to schedule, three weeks out. Scheduling is ridiculous, office staff rude, office wait time 45 min the first time, little over hour on second visit.
