I was referred to Dr Abuissa by a friend of mine who is also a patient of his. He is very professional and personable. He took his time listening to my questions and addressed all my concerns. I was really impressed how knowledgeable, humble, and patient he is. He put me at ease and now I travel 100 miles to see him. I am glad my friend referred me to him.

Misdiagnosis, procedure error, did not send needed info to other staff or insurance. Then would not work with me. Very unprofessional. Would recommend you find another doctor and a different facility.
