He is the first to give me a successful colonoscopy. Three other gastro doctors, could not. He has a real interest in listening to his patients, and explains procedures until patient completely understands.

Dr.Abboud is an excellent doctor he takes time and explains your problems and then lays out a plan to correct them. I have complete confidence in his ability. His office staff is very professional but a the same time very friendly and make you feel at ease. The nursing staff at Conemaugh hospital say that he is one of the nicest and easiest doctors to work with that is on staff that says a lot about a persons character. I WOULD HIGHLY RECCOMEND DR.
