Dr. Abi has been at Duke Univ (Durham NC) for the last year or more and is also a Skull Based surgeon so the website needs to catch up. I had a rare issue that he diagnosed quickly and followed up with tests and surgery within a month. He is detailed in his explanations and answers all my questions. He is kind and wants to help his patients. If you want a Dr who is passionate about his profession, Dr. Abi is who you want.
