What People Say About Dr. Christina Kabbash, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dr. Kabbash is by far one of the most extraordinary orthopedic surgeons I have met. Prior to finding her, I had seen over 5 doctors for the same condition, all of which dismissed the extreme pain and instability I was experiencing in my right ankle. I have been a patient of Dr. Kabbash’s for 3 years now and performed 2 surgeries on my right ankle, and she not once dismissed any of the pain or sensations I was experiencing. I am truly grateful to have had the opportunity to be a patient of hers.

I am forever grateful to Dr Kabbash. I had an extensive foot surgery and would not be walking today without the expertise of Dr Kabbash. She is very professional and without doubt an excellent doctor and surgeon. Thank you Dr Kabbash!!

Upon breaking my ankle in February 2017, I was referred to Dr. Kabbash's office and am so grateful I was! Everyone at the Hartford office was professional, encouraging, helpful and caring. Any questions I had were answered and any procedures received were thoroughly explained. Marci Cookson was wonderful, kind and understanding. There was never a doubt that I was in good hands. I would not hesitate calling her office again if ever needed and would refer her without reservation.

Dr. Kabbash is a fantastic doctor, and I highly recommend her. After going to 2 other doctors, one tried to rush me into surgery, the other doctor said he would be more comfortable have Dr. Kabbash look at my MRI because he wasn't sure if he should do surgery. Dr. Kabbash explained very precisely what she would do IF she operated, but told me she would rather see me try to go without surgery instead, and to pay very close attention to her instructions, and I should heel fine. I did and it did.

Kabbash Feedback I had foot surgery with Dr. Kabbash in October 2016. Scheduling and preparation for the surgery was clear and easy. Dr. Kabbash and Marcy, her PA, clearly explained the procedures I was having and the reason for the surgery. In had the surgery at a day surgery center and the care there was excellent. Although foot surgery and recovery was painful, I am now 6 months out and my foot is fully healed. I am feeling much better and have started exercising daily again. I ha

My husband and I are very grateful to Dr. Kabbash and her staff. I wish they would put before and after pictures on here because I never thought my husband would walk again. Dr. Kabbash meticulous skillful surgery on his ankle enabled him to be walking today. I would recommend this office for your surgery. She is one of the very best.

Dr. Kabbash went over and above to make sure my surgery was perfect. I had a long rehab and followed her orders. She did not take any short cuts and the results were amazing. It toke 7 month but I can walk again with no pain and I got my return to work full duty today. Dr. Kabbash and her great office staff are the best. Thank you for every thing. Robert Andrews.

Be prepared to wait, she double books time slots. I waited 90 minutes for my first visit, 37 mins for second visit and 45 mins for third visit. She is personable & has a good bedside manner, but it is disrespectful to be kept waiting so long. In addition, I wanted to go to Open MRI she said, don't bother having it unless I go to Jefferson Radiology. I don't know if there is a difference in accuracy between a closed and open MRI. I want competent medical care, feeling Fed up.

From the first visit a year ago, through the whole surgery/recovery process and followup, and to the recent final release, I could not have asked for a more better experience. Dr. Kabbash was informative explaining every step with detail and she is a very caring person/doctor. The results of her precise surgery has enabled me to walk normal, giving me a great quality of life!
