Doctor Abdulian is an excellent doctor. He operated on both of my hips at the same time and performed a bilateral hip replacement. He has knowledge and cares about his patients. I highly recommend anyone who wants to do total hip replacement. I am very thankful and feel blessed to have found a skilled orthopedic doctor like doctor Abdulian. Also I want to thank his wonderful staff especially Lucy for her care and assistance.

I consider myself very lucky to have found Dr. Abdulian! I had a torn labrum and rotator cuff in my right shoulder and Dr. Abdulian fixed me right up! I’m as good as new now and I can get back to exercising, picking my children up and spotting my gymnasts on their tricks. Not only is Dr. Abdulian an amazing surgeon, he’s also a very caring and compassionate person! I always felt taken care of by him. I highly recommend Dr. Abdulian to anyone having to have surgery!
