    I followed my family Dr's advice and saw Dr. Hamdan and I'm happy I did. I believe these negative reviews to be very misleading, Dr. Hamdan has excellent bed side manners and I always felt I'm getting the best care possible. I think he is a smart doctor and I really like in particular that he is not very aggressive in treating the condition, he offered me all possible treatment options instead of just booking me for surgery.

    I highly recommend Dr. Abu Hamdan! He has taken excellent care of my twins daughters & son without any complications. Very grateful for his services and care!

    I left his office in tears after my 1st appointment for a tumor. He stuck a tube down my nose and into my throat without telling me what he was doing or why. It was painful and I had to keep myself from grabbing his arm. He later did a biopsy which was painful and he did not get enough sample. I had to pay for it. During consultation I asked "what should I do?". He said "You should be paranoid and use the internet to find the best surgeon you can". Not helpful, inappropriate, and uncaring!

    Terrible service. Completely unprofessional! Dr Abu-Hamdan neglected to show up the day of my son's surgery. He was apparently ill and notified noone. The office neglected to notify me as well. I was told a half hour after the surgery was scheduled that he was not coming. His office was completely noncaring of the situation. I was told "It's too bad you feel that way. I would trust him with my own kids" What reason do I have to trust this dr?

    Dr. Abu-Hamdan made my young son feel comfortable before and after his surgery, while still providing me with all of the appropriate information. We will countinue to see Dr. Abu-Hamdan in the future.

    I waited 2 months to see the doctor and provided all of my history of dizziness and sinus issues to the practice. Although the nurse and other staff seemed appropriately thorough and cordial, Dr. Hamden rushed through his in-room visit with me, not seeming to dedicate appropriate time to understanding of my issues. He threw out a diagnosis of Miniere's and allergies with little discussion. Seemingly did not put much consideration into prescribing oral and nasal steroids.

    Currently, I do not have any symptoms. However, I'm a patient with very complicated medical issues. Since the age of 3 I have had the following, hemangioma, cystic chygroma, and lymphangioma tumors. I have team of specialist at st. Vincent hospital in Indy but am looking for an ENT closer to home. When I explained that dr's don't know what causes these tumors he said, maybe it's not brushing your teeth well or eating spicy foods. It was the most asinine statement I've EVER heard.Total dissmisal

    I am very upset by how I was treated in his office today. He used 5 different instruments on me and did not explain what he was doing or why he was doing it. Before I knew what he was doing he had a tube running into my nose, down my throat and was painfully poking around my vocal cords! I told him it would be better to inform a patient before doing that. It was shocking and horribly painful. Never would I see this man again!

    Very caring, explains everything & is just wonderful to the family & the patient. Takes the time to come in even after his hours are long over.
