Dr Abuzzahab is certainly my favorite doctor. Dr Abuzahab was very easy with me, he took the time to understand and diagnose me. (I have never seen before a doc that didn't rush through, so this was a pleasant change for me). He prescribed me a combination medicine for my speech impairment, and that has since CHANGED my life. I am very grateful to Dr Abuzzahab. He seems to have an impeccable mastery over his profession, I am so lucky to have seen him.
Dr. Abuzzahab is extremely knowledgeable in his areas of practice. His treatment has most definitely changed my life for the better.

He saved my life by finding a medication combination that for the first time relieved my depression. Very pleasant to work with. Not a great record keeper. He seems to work from a chemical model of the brain rather than a behavioral model. Since he is a psycho-pharmacologist, he has a good grounding for this approach. I feel that the censures he has occurred come from pushing the medication boundaries to try and help patients and not from carelessness or malpractice.
