    Dr.Emad Abuhamda,was so rude & unprofessional its sickening. I had a colonoscopy done by him at Holy Cross hospital,& was discharged by a nurse without him seeing me first.i had to wait until Monday to call his office to speak with him & was told to make an appointment for Wednesday. Now I'm at the appointment & because I'm asking a lot of questions pertaining to the procedure,he gets upset & says I'm complaining & he's gonna ask me to leave. I would NEVER recommend anyone to see him,NEVER!!

    I found Dr Abuhamda to be uncaring, arrogant and not at all empathetic. He seemed to discount everything that I said, which to me seemed like he was not believing me. He seemed irritated that I had seen other doctors in another state. He showed no concern about my complaints of pain and offered very little suggestion or hope. The whole appointment had the feeling that I was interrupting his day and that he had better things to do. The whole experience was quite exasperating!

    I just had my routine visit and had the routine procedure of a colonoscopy. Dr. Abuhamda was very thorough and took the time to explain everything to me. Dr. Abuhamda is a true expert in his field.

    I was seen by the dr a week ago and was told they would be authorizing a CT scan through my insurance company (24-48 hrs). A week passes without any phone call. I call requesting a phone call back. In the meantime I call my insurance company to discover they never even sent the pre-auth for my CT scan. I receive a phone call back and am told by the lady that she is extremely busy and will get to it tmrw-ya know because my pain for the past week is no big deal. Never again will I go there.
