Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Need an appointment with Dr. Abate in SB
Please, Dr. Abate, contact me for an appointment with you as I was not able to get an appointment with you through the Samsun Clinic personnel. They kept asking for blood work that can be done or defined after I have seen you and talked about my need. In the past, I had a diagnosis of Polycythemia Vera but the diagnosis wasn't correct and as I recently moved to California from Switzerland I need a Doc whom I can trust to understand my blood clotting tendency and advise further diagnostic tools in Santa Barbara. Please give me an appointment and reach me over my email at (mkATincap.com CC-hkATincap.com) I am a blue cross and blue shield insured patient. A colleague from Samsun clinic in Santa Barbara recommended you for me to my husband. Thanks in advance. Kindest regards. Maida

Dr Abate does not "believe in" Covid vaccination. If you visit his practice you will be potentially exposing yourself to Covid. This is a reprehensible position for an oncologist who works with immune compromised patients. Please find yourself another doctor.
