Competent surgeon with clinically and cosmetically good outcomes, but no bedside manner when presented with patient questions, and unconcerned with managing pain.

I am so glad to write this review for an excellent doctor. I got my Hyper-Para thyroid surgery done last year. I was very nervous and didn't know what to expect before I met Dr.Misih. Dr.Mishi was so kind and was very patient to explain me everything about the surgical procedures. Words can't explain how happy I am to get my surgery done by best Surgeon. It would highly recommend Dr.Misih.

I looked for a surgeon to do parathyroid surgery as recommended by my GP.I choose Dr. Abdel-Misih based on the many wonderful reviews, recommendations from other Drs and medical personnel, and by watching a video of Dr. Misih on the Christiana Care website. Dr. Misih was very thorough in his evaluation. He found that, in addition to hyperparathyroidism, I had a severe vitamin D deficiency and a multinodular goiter that needed to be removed. He did the surgery which went very well. Great job!

Dr,. Abdel-Misih has performed two procedures on me. One to remove melanoma and the other an umbilical hernia. I am scheduling another hernia soon and would not have any other surgeon operate on me. He is personable and spends the time necessary to make sure your outcome is clearly understood.
