He couldn't review my chart or take the time to understand what I did for work before assessing me. He pushed off everything o have said and left me feeling like I was unheard the whole time. Lots of questions answered withore questions. I felt like o had no choice but to deal. I have since researched and I had safer surgery options and could have prevented the nerve damage that I will live with for the rest of my life now. He was very slow to graduate to the next step and I always left in pain

Only concerned about the technical and immediate result of the surgery. Not concerned about the actual outcome or patient well being. I had an extremely poor outcome and needed to have a second surgery by another surgeon to repair the mess that Dr. Abdo made. Office staff was friendly and it was easy to schedule an appointment.

He defiantly seems to know his stuff.seems confident that's always a plus.I am having disc surgery soon and will leave a reply but from some one who is terrified of going under the knife I think he is a good choice.
