Dr. Abdulhak and his team were fantastic. They worked for over 10 hours on my spine straightening it and stabilizing it and replacing 3 discs, used 8 pedical screws and two rods. Staff was great. Work done was perfect. That was in 2018. Now, I ride my bike and exercise and walk wherever I want. Thanks!!!

I have had two surgeries with Dr Abdulhak. Both times he and his staff have answered my questions and concerns. Each surgery has presented different problems which have been successful in treating the problem at that time.

Phenomenal surgeon with an excellent bedside manner. His staff is always pleasant. I could not walk due to a large herniated disc compressing over 2/3 of my spinal cord. Within 6 weeks after surgery, I am able to walk with a cane. He is worth the wait for an appointment or surgery date. His expertise, skill set, and attention to detail is top-notch. Highly recommend him and his staff.

David Decker in MILLINGTON, MI – Aug 24, 2018
After 2 failed Laminectomies with a different doctor I was very nervous to try a different doctor. Dr. AbdulhK came highly recommended. I am glad I went to him. He did a spinal fusion on my L5-S1 and a little more than a year later I am doing so much better.

D. Miracle in Taylor, MI – Feb 26, 2016
Doctor Abdulhak is a great surgeon. The surgery was a tremendous success once I recovered from the HORRIBLE treatment I received from the releasing nurse and the fact that I was released to go home 6 hours after surgery. My pain medication had not yet lost its effect. I was not allowed to urinate. I was rushed back to the hospital a day and a half after the surgery due to extreme pain. spent one week there. Office Staff A+ , Residents D-, Rude, non caring, pompous, Acted like SPOILED BRATS !!
