I love Dr. Abbate. He's very thorough. It's very difficult to get an appointment with him. PA's are great! Drawback of the Riverdale office is the non caring attitude at the front desk upon arrival and it has been my experience the last 2 visits. I walked in and signed the sheet. The girl behind the glass said, "Name?, Insurance?, (looked at her cellphone) $40 copay". Never looked at me and her midriff was exposed. Top was too small. Good I wasn't there for a serious problem.

I believe he is very capable and pleasant. He did 3 biopsies on me. Never called with the results. Image my surprise when the surgeon called! One was Cancer. Poor??

Waiting 20 - 30 minutes after my appointment start time to see Dr. Abbate is the norm. You'll see most patients come in after you and see a doctor before you. Recently I paid my copay, waited over 40 minutes, didn't see Dr. Abbate, had to leave for a business meeting, informed the office staff, and drove back for my meeting. Dr. Abbate and this physician group care much more about making money and less about respecting your time...keep looking for a better doctor.

Highly professional, friendly, compassionate Dr, nurses and office staff. I trust Dr Abbate completely.
Have nothing but the highest respect for Dr Abbate and his staff. Compassionate, caring, people.

Worst experience dealing with appointment scheduling staffs.
in Riverdale, NJ |
Over a 70 minute wait time. Rude office staff. Unprofessional. Inconsistent care. When asked what exactly is in the cyst he is removing, his reply was: Stuff!. This guy is totally full of himself - and appears is more interested in volume than true patient care. Spare yourself the narcissism practiced by this doctor - and find someone who REALLY cares about YOU!
