Dr. Abdo is a kind soul. I would trust him with my family. He has many years of exceptional service and cares deeply for his patients. Tonight he help ease my suffering on a holiday weekend. I am beyond grateful to work with him at Banner Baywood surgery department. Tonight he saved a life. Then went the extra mile to help me. If your looking for a top notch surgeon consider him he provides services in Mesa and globe.

My experience with this physician was horrible. He has caused me a great deal of pain and now I need additional medical attention. Stay clear of this one folks.
Mesa, AZ |
Dr Abdo is so nice. He's very knowledgeable and his P. A. Brett, sits and listens and helps with all your concerns as well. I was in the hospital for a week and one of them came to check on me everyday to answer any questions or concerns. I also had several follow up visits with him or his assistant, who can and will, contact Dr Abdo if he can't answer your question. I highly recommend him for surgery
Phoenix, AZ |
He's an awesome surgeon and I'm fortunate to have been referred to him. Kind, professional, and took great time to discuss my procedure in depth. Highly recommend.
in Chandler, AZ |
I stayed an extra day in the hospital because nobody could get a hold of Dr. Abdo for the last 2 days of my visit. Apparently it's OK to charge me for a hospital visit for 2 days because he sent his Assistant to see me, and the 30 second visit was hardly worth hundreds of dollars. What a great strategy to get around the system Dr. Abdo, you should be proud! I don't know if Dr Joseph Abdo is a good surgeon, but I can tell you he didn't treat me right. I would not recommend him to anyone.

My 91 year old mother was admitted to the hospital with stomach pain. Doctor Abdo was on call and it turned out we were so blessed to have him treat my mother. Over several days it became apparent that her symptoms were gallbladder. Dr. Abdo kept us informed every step of the way about her symptoms, surgery, and above all, he was reass urring and always concerned and friendly. If you want a doctor that knows his stuff AND has a great personality then you want Dr. Abdo. 5 Stars!!!!!
