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.
