My mother had severe back pain so we went to see Dr. Abumeri. He ordered a MRI of her back and found that she has a tumor in her spine attached to the nerve. Dr. Abumeri explained to us in very simple term all the details and risks and benefits of the surgery. He removed the tumor and fused part of her spine. My mother is pain free and no longer at risk to become paralyzed. Dr. Abumeri did a wonderful job. My mother and I highly recommend him to be your neurosurgeon.

My daughter had a brain tumor in a deep seated area of the brain. One surgeon said that it is not operable. We went to see Dr. Abumeri and he did operate and removed all of the tumor. He saved my daughter's life. God bless his hands.
