On August 7th 2018, Dr Abbott performed a craniotomy on my daughter and I couldn't be happier with the outcome and the care before, during and after the procedure. He took time to explain to my wife and I what was going on, explained with detail, and answered every single question we had. It was a very tense and nerve wrecking time for us but everything turned out fine, thank God. Once again, thank you for saving my daughter, Dr. Abbott, you are the absolute best.
