Very through!
Initial visit was through. Talks fast, but does respond to questions, offers clarification as needed & summarized conversation with a list of follow up steps. I look forward to future visits as I felt Dr Abed made an effort to review my chart, listened to my input & provided helpful suggestions.

Very Impressed
I saw Dr. Abed for the first time today and was pleasantly surprised. He was very timely, I only waited about 5 minutes which NEVER happens. He was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and easy to communicate with. He answered all my questions and concerns, and I left the appointment feeling very confident about our visit. His nurse was also very pleasant and classy. I will happily see Dr. Abed again in the future.

Diagnosis
During a routine visit with Dr. Abed - he asked about any other symptoms that were of concern. I mentioned excessive daytime sleepiness and asked if my thyroid should be checked. He suggested a sleep lab test first since sleep disorders are the most common cause. I was set-up to see a sleep specialist, was tested and diagnosed with severe sleep apnea. The sleep therapy and c-pap machine has made such a significant difference in my overall health that I believe it was the single most serious health challenge I've had to date. Dr. Abed was responsible for this break-through and I'm extremely grateful and would recommend him highly.

Dr, Abed has a calm, capable demeanor. So easy to talk to and he listens intently. He has a sense of humor but he's very smart and knowledgeable. We have a gret shortage of endocronologists in Tulsa. We're very fortunate to have Dr. Abed!

Fantastic Team
I absolutely love Dr. Abed and his team. From the moment I sat down I was impressed. I heard a couple of patients complain about issues that have nothing to do with the doctors office and yet the staff stay calm and helped out the best they could. Dr. Abed heard my complaints during my first visit and was spot on with his recommendations for treatment. I just got home from my follow up and again he heard my complaints and followed through with a recommendation. I have no doubts by my 6 month follow up, I'll be in good shape. Dr. Abed is the best!

Great care team!
As a patient of OK Heart Institute, I appreciate that I was able to stay with the practice and work with Dr. Abed when my former care provided retired. Dr. Abed is extremely attentive and engaged in my care plan. He and his nurse Tracy always make me feel comfortable in addressing concerns and asking questions. Dr. Abed listens intently to understand my needs as his patient and always wants me to understand the direction we are going to make sure I am taken care of. I have recommended Dr. Abed to others and will continue to do so!

You are definitely in good hands whenever you come here for a visit.

So kind!
They were understanding about me being late. They explained that they couldn't take time from the people who arrived on time, and I understood that I would have to wait a bit longer. I was expecting to have to wait a long time, but I don't think I waited even as long as I normally do at other offices. Even still, they didn't rush through my time. Dr. Abed took the time to ask me the questions and not just make assumptions. The entire office was also incredible about me having to bring my daughter with me. They were so nice to her and I! The doctor showed the the steps needed for my treatment plan, and even explained how we can correct if the plan goes astray. It was informative and an all around good experience.

After being diagnosed with Diabetes Type I at age 67, I was astounded and scared. My PCP recommended Dr Abed and the staff quickly got me into the office to consult him during this difficult time. Dr Abed is a beacon of hope, provides excellent advice and treatment, listens intently and answers all my questions, and is very encouraging. I leave his office uplifted, knowing I can manage this disease with his help. His staff is wonderful as well. Adrian Donnelly, his PA, is excellent and shares Dr Abed's traits of quality care, knowledge and compassion. Dr Abed's nurse, Tracey, is so friendly and helpful. In fact, the entire staff is lovely. I absolutely recommend Dr Abed for anyone dealing with diabetes and feel very fortunate to be under his care.

Rushed Diagnosis
I felt that Dr. ABED seemed to make a lifetime diagnosis after one 45min consultation and two lab tests. As a professional who teaches Clinical Medicine to medical students, I was shocked that he failed to 1) Consider Test-Retest Validity (ie Repeat Labs at least one time) and failed to order other diagnostic tests appropriate with making his diagnosis. I also felt his patient doctor rapport could have been much better.

Awesome Doctor
Dr. Abed is a credit to his field. His knowledge and skills as a specialist was worth me traveling from Tahlequah OK to Tulsa OK, over a 140 mile round trip. The rapport he built in his session with me was remarkable. Oklahoma Heart Institute is fortunate to have him.

Very friendly and knowledgeable , doctor took the time to explain and answer all my questions. It was very obvious he had reviewed my chart completely, as he mentioned testing that had been done by another Dr. to make sure it had been followed up on and he was able to provide me the right diagnoses and management. The front staff is always friendly and smiling at everyone that comes in. I would highly recommend Dr. Elie Abed.
