Dr. Abbed is a very caring surgeon with a great bedside manner. I would see him again if I needed any kind of neurosurgery.

Dr. Abbed performed a TLIF procedure on me this past fall. I would highly recommend him and his team. He spent much time with both my wife and I explaining my options as well as the actual surgery, too. He has a tremendously refreshing bedside manner is is very warm and caring. I would suggest anyone with spine or lower back issue bring their MRI and have him and his staff do an evaluation. I have no nerve or lower back pain anymore and can finally sleep thru the night!

I went to Dr. Abbed for back surgery after seeing what a great job he did for my son neck and back. He was the second surgeon I consulted with. The first did not want to do the surgery because of my weight. He did the surgery and the pain is gone and I was able to go back to my nursing job working 12 hour shifts. He also has amazing office staff and a really good PA that he works with.

He destroyed my life by performing back surgery that left me with a drop foot damaged s1 nerve and severe chronic pain. I am disabled. Cannot walk. Bladder does not work. He drilled into my nerve. My pain is worse than ever before. He didn't want to have anything to do with me after he realized what he did. I had to retire. Everything changed for the worse and alkyl I wanted was to be out of pain. Waited 25 years to have surgery. Now I am a cripple.
