Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Saw this doctor 3 times. Felt rushed, minimal discussion / verbal interaction. Went over labs from year ago, nothing current. Told me my numbers were scary & there was nothing he could do as a cardiologist.

I was recommended to Dr Abboud after having a hypertensive crisis requiring hospitalization. I had no idea how to select a cardiologist in a new town. Dr Abboud is extremely efficient; went over med history and tests thoroughly and listened to my concerns about my heart and hypertension. He was not in a hurry to run me out of the treatment room within 15 minutes. His concerns were for me and my health. I trust his expertise. Excellent bedside manner--the best by far.
