      I would highly recommend Dr. Abikhaled. I saw him for a hernia repair and from his initial consultation to the follow-ups months later, he was nothing short of patient, knowledgable, and very attentive. He even advised me to wait until the appropriate time (rather than do exploratory surgery) to have the hernia repaired. When it was time to have surgery, he explained the procedure and took the time to answer all of my questions and address my concerns. In fact, he even personally called me twice

      Dr. Abikhaled greets you with a friendly, professional, interested demeanor. He is not rushed, harried or distracted. He explained everything thoroughly, went over possible concerns and likely outcomes. My consultation app had to be pushed back and I had a call hours before hand to reschedule...and I saw him within a couple of minutes of my arrival. My surgery was right on time and everything went smoothly and he came and spoke to me before and after (and went out to speak to my husband).
