We are thankful for the wonderful care and the competence demonstrated by Dr. Abdu when treating our sister/daughter/mom who was diagnosed with a brain tumor. In what felt like a frightening and uncertain time, she brought calm and confidence. We knew from the moment we met with her that our girl was in the best of hands! Dr. Abdu and her team performed a successful surgery and her sincere and attentive care didn't stop there. She has stayed with us every step of the way through recovery.

We are extremely satisfied with the level of experience, profesionalism, and kindness my Mom received under Dr. Abdu's care and her team. During these difficult times, she helped us kept calm and even confident everything was going to be OK, took the time to explain all the options and risks, gave us time to discuss it, before performing a stent procedure. Also, she made us feel that she truly cares for her patients, almost like a part of her family. We highly recommend her.

Dr. Abdu performed a brain aneurysm clipping for me earlier this year, this was a craniotomy for a ruptured cerebral anuerysm with SAH. I have nothing but good things to say about her and her staff! She is very knowledgeable and has great bedside manner. I had a great experience and am well on my way to recovery.

I met Dr. Abdu when I had a ruptured brain aneurysm. She performed a angioplasty procedure to coil the aneurysm. She was wonderful at explaining everything to me and my family before and after the procedure. We discovered that I had 2 more aneurysms and an AVM in my brain. I elected to have brain surgery to remove them. Dr. Abdu and her team have been with me every step of the way on this journey, and I could not be more grateful. I highly recommend her to anyone needing neurosurgical care

Dr Emun Abdu is the very best. I had a Angioplasty and stent placement - carotid artery don on 2-26-2019. I am very happy! All went well and I must have added about 70 more years of life expectancy. Dr Abdu is very personal, truly cares about her patients, explains all the details verbally, in writing and through pictures. I felt totally safe with her. She is simply the best!

I can highly recommend Dr. Abdu. My needs were urgent and were met with professional and responsive health care solutions. Very thorough and deliberate assessment and resolution and follow up. I can't thank you enough for your care when it was needed most. I am fully recovered and back to my routines. Kind regards, Dave.

I had the good fortune to meet with Dr. Abdhu when came to Evergreen hospitalthru the emergency room as a referral from another hospital. I had had several strokes and had a blood clot on my right carotid artery that had been damaged by the radiation I received when I had been treated for cancer. Previously. I had been seen at one of the big Seattlehospitals and they didn't think they could deal with it surgically. Dr Abdu hexplained all my options and performed an angioplasty. The best Dr Ever!

My husband was diagnosed with AVFistula recently and Dr Abdu did a procedure on my husband namely arteriovenous fistula that was embolized. Dr Abdu has the best bedside manner and she does treat each patient as she would treat her family. We are so thankful to God for getting Dr Abdu as our surgeon. We can't thank Dr Abdu enough. Thank you .

My experience with Dr. Ebdu was wonderful. I came to her with 1 anuerysm detected at the hospital in Monroe. After she did my angiogram, a total of 4 were found. I was scared to death, and other health issues also complicated my case. Dr. Ebdu was calming influence for me. She was direct, and answered all questions. I am so happy she is my doctor. I would recommend her to any person who needs brain surgery.

Dr, Abdu, did a miraculous brain surgery on me. I am overwhelmed at her expertise and the way she makes you feel when you are there. She is a very positive person. She makes sure you are confident in her, (in which I was totally), She sees you as a person not an object. I'm missing you already Dr. Abdu! Guess, I'm going to have to travel to Washington to have my surgery! You're an ANGEL sent from Heaven Dr. Abdu!

Dr. Abdu saved my wife. She performed an emergency SAH surgery on 30 Apr 2017 and, an additional aneurysm clip on 7 Aug 2017. Due to the location and configuration of these aneurysms, the surgeries were both very complex, with high risk for paralysis in both cases. They were eight and seven hours in length, respectively. She performed the second surgery, even though she had stopped doing surgery in preparation for her move to Washington. Why? Because my wife asked her to. She's the best.

My dad had a stroke in 2014 he was flown to St Joseph's hospital were we came to meet Dr Abdu. She did surgery on his right side of the neck to clean out the artery. One year later Dr Abdu put a stint in the left side. My dad wouldn't be were he is today without Dr Abdu. We will go to wherever she is to have anything done in her expertise. St Joseph's and Tucson is losing a great surgeon and person. We love Dr Abdu!

Dr. Abdu gave my husband and I a second chance at life! My husband had a sah and had to be coiled. He had a18 mm anuerysm rupture. If it weren't for the expertise, caring and good eye for every detail my husband and I would not be enjoying our everyday life as we do. When our anuerysm compacted she was able to recoil without adding a stent. Her time and energy and care for my husband during that surgery was amazing.ThankDr. Abdu

Not sure if you it's appropriate to call spinal surgery a great experience, however all my fears have been taken care of and I'm grateful and healing. I had not been in a hospital for more than forty years because I had been healthy most of my life. Needing surgery at 71 was overwhelming and frightening. To state that I was mortified is an understatement. Here I am less than two months later and I am doing amazingly well. Thank you Dr. Abdu, Amy, and Rena. Also Dr. Dimitri and Jeff.
