Dr. Abbas did my lung surgery almost 4 years ago in Riverview Hospital Red Bank . I couldn't have asked for better care. I miss him since he left for West Virginia.

I'm completing this review for my 80 year old father that does not have internet. In addition to the high marks provided by my father, I can say that me and my family were very impressed with Dr. Abbas following my father's surgery. He answered all questions, provided his cell number in the event we had more questions, and returned several times to check on my father, explaining everything to expect during his recovery. Very accommodating..

I have been around for a long time and have seen doctors in Europe and here in the USA. Dr. Abbas is probably the most compassionate doctor I have encountered. I can say that I feel blessed that he has treated me and the manner in which he treated my family. Thank you Doctor Abbas.
