My experience with everyone in that office was about the worst I have ever had. I only had 1 appointment and I will never, ever, ever go back. I was Not one person in that office was pleasant at all. Dr Abboud was horrible to me. She was rude, impatient and had no interest in hearing what I had to say. I had recently been diagnosed as a diabetic so I was still learning about my disease and needed questions answered... she pretty much made me feel stupid for not knowing and having to ask. I walked out of there so upset and crying. There are some people who should not be Doctors.... and she is one of them. I noticed that she only got 3 stars for an overall review.... I feel like she doesn't even deserve that. I would never refer her to anyone....

I thought Dr.abboud was knowledgeable about endocronology but her office staff is incompetent. I felt as if they kept pushing me to do some $50weight loss scan that was not covered by insurance. Then I had my primary doctors office send my referral over and they said they never received it. I went to the appt after calling that morning to make sure they had my referral. I get there and they sent me away saying they never got there. After I left they call me and tell me to come back. I told them I would reschedule. After they called me 2 times to reschedule, I told them I would when my schedule permitted. Then I received a letter that said I was no longer permitted to be seen by Dr. Abboud. When I called to discuss no one returned my call. Crazy.

Dr. Abboud's staff is one of the worst medical office staff I have ever met in my life. From top to bottom, if I could the office staff negative stars, I would. Dr. Abboud; however, is a great doctor and she genuinely cared about my concerns. When I went to see her, she was friendly and listened to me about the problems I had with my hypothyroid/hashimotos. The staff, on the other hand, was terrible. The office manager saw me as a dollar sign and that's all. She was incredibly rude to me on the phone and told me I was "blacklisted" (her words) from seeing Dr. Abboud because I was out of the country and could not make it to the appointment I had scheduled (which I had called in advance and told them about). As a doctor, Dr. Abbout I would recommend but there are far better offices that you can go to that will treat you far better than her office treated me. I would avoid and go elsewhere.

I have left my details for an appointment as new patient. I received a call on last Thursday and requested me to hold the line to get my appointment but they disconnected the phone and never called. We just moved from Houston and the doctors and staff were very awesome & professional and take care of patients. But here we have not seen that much concern. I am 34 week pregnant and need to an appointment as I have hypothyroidism but they are least bothered.

I would not recommend her. She seems to be knowledgeable but has very poor people skills. A situation happened where her staff did not correctly relay a question from me to her and in turn the doctor called me and was very short tempered. I tried to explain what my question was but she would not listen to me. After that incident I chose to stop seeing her and when I called to cancel my appointment 2 weeks before the date I was told the appointment had already been cancelled.

As soon as I met Dr. Abboud, I knew I'd found the right Dr. When you've been to as many Drs as I have,you sense immediately if they know their job. She's extremely sharp, and has a very pleasant personality, which is like icing on the cake. A lot of Drs who are very smart,sometimes forget that the patient in front of them is a person with feelings, and concerns. Dr. Abboud was very pleasant, and as soon as she came in my room, I relaxed, because I knew I was in the hands of a very good Doctor.

Dr. Abboud was an excellent choice for an endocrinologist in Oak Lawn. Have had trouble getting control of my diabetes for a long time and I feel like she helped educate me better than any of my previous doctors. She was attentive, compassionate, and put together an achievable plan for me. Would recommend her to anyone struggling with their diabetes.
