Dr. Abdelfattah has done 4 surgeries on my right hand and wrist. Each time, he was extremely professional, but also warm and caring. He explained the procedures fully, making sure both my husband and I understood everything that was going to happen. He made sure I was an active partner in the decision-making processes, and offered me several alternatives to surgery. I would not hesitate to recommend him-as I already have!

Working out at the gym with weights caused a pain in my left wrist, so I made a visit to see Dr. Abdelfattah. Not only was the office staff kind and professional, Dr. Abdelfattah diagnosed my issue right away and the pain subsided tremendously after his treatment. I followed up with him online and he attentively replied to each of my messages. I can honestly say I do not remember the last time I appreciated a doctors office visit/follow up as I did with Dr. Abdelfattah and his office staff.

Dr. Abdelfattah helped me through two extensive hand surgeries. During both the procedures and recovery periods, he provided my parents, my trainer, and myself with extensive knowledge and support concerning my next steps. Dr. Abdelfattah made me feel very comfortable to ask questions and trustworthy of his practice.

After years of suffering pain and sleepless nights, my primary Dr. referred me to Dr. Abdelfattah. I was impressed with him and his staff and he operated on my carpal tunnel problem on 5/4. Immediately after, my arm no longer "goes to sleep" and (to my surprise) my severe arthritic shoulder pain is no longer a problem. In addition to the fact that he is a highly competent surgeon, he is also a very nice young man …. no arrogance here, thank God!

Doctor Abdelfattah was extremely gentle in his care. He was very honest about the severity of my injury. I kept coming back for periodic check-ups. A second surgery was needed and that really did the trick along with months of therapy. I would not hesitate to return to him if ever needed again.
