He wasn't there when I woke up from surgery. He prescribed the lowest possible dose of painkiller and only 9 pills? His office doesn't return calls. No call the day after surgery.

Dr A operated on my neck and all was well going through recovery but then I started therapy. Therapy aggregated my neck pain beyond the normal discomfort. Dr A realized I’d received the wrong treatment and order the nurse to arrange a new therapist. Never Happened! I called multiple times to find out what was happening and left multiple messages, when I was able to speak to someone I was told they had no record. I am total disappointed in Dr A and especially his staff. Absolutely the worst.

I have been a patient of doctor abdolavabi since 2007. Before he would do back surgery he run all kinds of test. Sent me to physical therapy, pain management. He did everything to try to avoid surgery for me. I got to the point I couldn’t take the pain any more and under went lumbar fusion. Dr abdalvahbi alway took the time to listen and explain what need to be done! I am still a patient of his and was scheduled to have a surgery had to reschedule and dr A understanding. Awesome Dr

Beyond disappointed. After having surgery back in 2009 , my back issues have reappeared. Regardless of sending many referrals to Dr A., I can not get an appt. Office staff requires me to get an MRI from my primary. My primary tells me to see a specialist to order an extray or MRI. It’s been a spin cycle for one week while I’m in pain, unable to work and unable to resolve. From he said/ she said , the patient is who should be the first priority . Nice guy, terrific surgeon,lousy staff. I’m done!

I had to cancel my surgery because it was too difficult to talk to anyone on staff for my free app consultation it took me nine calls over three or four days to get a call back to schedule the surgery. Then two days before the operation I still hadn't heard from anybody for medical clearance, consultations, what to expect, what time to arrive at the hospital or any medication that I might need before the surgery. I didn't feel confident enough in getting any aftercare.

No. He told me I asked too many questions. He said he was the doctor and I would be sleeping while he operated. He said I did not need to know anything. He was not forthcoming in his explanations. He even scheduled my surgery, and I had all the pre-op procedures done (chest X-ray, blood work, etc.). He then decided he would cancel my surgery because I wanted too much information about my operation. He is the worst doctor I have ever been to in my entire life. No.

I have been a patient if Dr. Abdolvahabi's for 10 plus years- starting with severe back pain I never had in my life- after tests confirming a diagnosis Dr. A came up with every alternate treatment plan he could before considering surgery- unfortunately I have had 3 major surgeries but each one done only as a last resort and resolving the issue at the time. I have complete faith in Dr. A's knowledge and ability to handle any and all of my issues and have and would recommend him to anyone

Dr. A is great. Office staff is either overworked / incompetent. My MRI disc was misplaced for 2 weeks and when I called the office manager (Joe) he said my use of foul language and tone were unacceptable. To be fair I did say I was a bit pissed off. This is hardly foul language and, after patiently waiting for a call back and follow-up regarding my MRI I was within my rights to be upset. I have left 3 messages this past week with no response. I've been waiting 6 weeks for surgery a date
