Excellent Surgeon
Dr. Abboud repaired my rotator cuff in mid Nov 2021. I came to him under duress and was seen first by Bryan Berlin PA C, and sent to mri for confirmation. Dr. Abboud discussed the options, and there were several and when we decided on surgery I had complete confidence. This was a seamless operation in a short period of time, thanks to Michelle Viola, the surgical coodinator. Over the months of my recovery I've seen him and each time find his candor, experience, and humor healing things unto themselves. He gave us his cell phone, which I never called, but did certainly call Bryan and he was ever so helpful. Everyone in the front office has been perfect. No waiting, friendly.

Very Good Physician
I first saw Dr. About 12-15 years ago. He performed a rotator cuff repair, he was the second physician to do it because the first one failed (it was with a different practice). It's lasted a long time, and now at 69, I trust him to help me make the best decision for what needs to be done next. I will be getting an MRI soon and have an appointment with Dr. Abboud next month.

I have had two very successful shoulder replacement surgeries performed by Dr. Abboud (2018 and 2021.) Both times, the experience throughout has been exceptional. Dr. Abboud was my second opinion. Having seen two other surgeons off and on for shoulder pain in the past, after that first 2017 appt. with Dr. Abboud, I knew I was dealing with a superior surgeon, one that is update-to-date, very patient centric, very patient, easy to understand, highly skilled and extremely dedicated. While Dr. Abboud has a very busy practice, any interaction with Dr. Abboud is always focused, encourages two way communication and simply not rushed. His bio states that one of his goals is to provide personalized care and he does just that while delivering great surgical results.

Reverse Shoulder Replacement Surgery
Am 3 weeks post op from my second shoulder replacement surgery with Dr Abboud. My experience with him and all the members of his team was truly outstanding. They are very patient oriented, taking time to fully explain my condition, the process and the entire procedure. Followups after surgery were equally outstanding. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Very professional and attentive
Went to see Dr. Abboud after a failed rotator cuff surgery done by another doctor. He did a fantastic job with the revision surgery. Saw other doctor locally who said I had a great outcome considering the severity of my injury. I would highly, highly recommend seeing Dr. Abboud. He’s a fantastic surgeon with a great manner.

Excellent experience!
Dr. Abboud is friendly and attentive. He listened to my concerns, answered my questions, and formulated a solid plan for my care. His staff is top-notch, from reception to the nurses. I was seen on time, had xrays done right in the office, and was attended to by a very nice and efficient nurse practioner leading up to my visit with Dr. Abboud. I certainly felt assured that my health and recovery are the primary concern of everyone in Dr. Abboud's practice.

Dr. Joseph Abboud is an outstanding practitioner. I felt at ease the moment he walked into the room with a big smile and outstretched hand. He is patient, thorough, kind, supportive and surrounds himself with a stellar team. I felt/feel so cared for, like an extension of my family. His expertise and reputation aside, he is a wonderful doctor!

I had a great experience with Dr Abboud and team. His team was able to get me in very quickly for most of my appointments and remembered me by name and who I was. It was very welcoming. Knock on wood, surgery (3 weeks post) went well and recovery has been without issues. After my surgery, the team sent me flowers which was very unexpected and sweet. I hope I don't get hurt again (!!) but would definitely go to Dr Abboud in the future.
