We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. Abbi is a brilliant surgeon and a caring, patient, fair and kind man. I was blessed to have him as my surgeon for my only surgeries ever, 3 MAJOR surgeries. He saved my body after a nasty injury that was getting progressively worse rapidly with huge pain and disability associated. The injury would have left me permanently bent over + unable to walk. Now I am able to stand straight & walk (almost) normally. VMC is extremely lucky to have this wonderful Doctor on their staff. Although my recovery has been slow I am improving steadily. He corrected every part of me destroyed by the attack. I look forward to a complete recovery. He went above and beyond with intelligent decision making, truth & compassion. He is, always will be, a Hero to me. He is pure gifted Magic! (Also, his scheduler, Faustina, is a dear, capable, effective and efficient young lady.)

Dr. Abbi has a terrible bedside manner. I went into the hospital with a broken arm . He never looked at my arm. All he said was there is nothing I can do for you. I have cancer and I felt that he was saying you are going to die anyway so I don't have to do anything. I would never recommend him to anyone.

Do NOT go to Dr. Abbi, besides not having a bedside manner, he is ill-equipped to do basic surgeries. This is NOT someone you want to operate on you, he is incompetent as a surgeon. I am fighting breast cancer and broke my arm, he walked into the room and said "what is your plan?" I was confused, he's the doctor are you going to set it or do surgery? He said "it's out of my scope", he did NOT refer me to another specialists, he did not offer to cast my arm so I could get help, he left me in my hospital room for 3 days unattended with chance of possible staph infection. He would not call my Oncologist back...JUST BASIC CARE. For someone who "TOOK AN OATH" to help people, he is not your guy. Just sort of a bad human being in general. If you want a GREAT ORTHOPEDIC doctor who knows his stuff, call Dr. Velyvis, he's ON IT!

When my own daughter was injured, he provided instant information and consulted with her pediatrician on what to do to heal her leg. A real down to Earth guy too. Thanks Dr. Abbi for all your help!

I would NEVER recommend Dr. Abbi for surgery. He performed a 3 level spinal fusion which ( I understand that it is not always successful procedure) but his bedside manor was nonexistent as he visited once. I fell out of bed after this 14hour surgery and they sent me home the next day and reading my medical records he is a jerk. Don't go to him!

He didn't explain anything other than saying I had Osteoarthritis (which I already knew) he refused to look at note with my symptoms (I'm elderly with memory problems so I have to jot things down) which he basically flung aside, saying he wasn't going to discuss them. He didn't spend the appropriate amount of time because in the middle of exam, he rushed out and some other Dr had to finish. He didn't engender any level of trust because of his arrogant and insensitive attitude!
