Refuses to order UTI antibiotics over the phone even with over the counter test results and very obvious sysmtoms due to "office policy". Reffered me to an urgent care or ER instead of just writing a perscription. They refilled my muscle relaxers though no questions asked. Nonsense.

I am sorry no star was not an option! I was referred her as a second opinion after my kidney stone removal surgery and stones appeared again. Waited 2.5 month for the appointment paid hefty office visit, prescribed 6 months of antibiotic, oxycontin, next appointment sent my way. Come to next appointment doctor was too busy to see me NURSE was all I was going to get by the way how come I did not have ultrasound they forgot to request I walked out. sent doctor bill not nurse Don't waste $ time

I love Dr. Gabal. If you are looking for a caring, knowledgable and sharp doctor, look no further. I can't say enough good things about her. She is worth every minute you have to wait to get that first appointment.

Is Lamia Gabal a humanist who cares about your needs as a human being or a self-absorbed and nearsighted healing arts practitioner? Let me make this clear that I do not question her clinical skills, but I do take issue with her lack of concern for me as a person. I must conclude that her clinical expertise as an Urologist alone does not impress me because there are scores of competent technocratic uncaring practitioners of medicine who work for their personal enrichment. I need more.
