Would never recommend as when he repaired my hip he put in screws that were too long and I had surgery 10 days later to fix it. My regular dr found the problem. He never followed up on why I was in so much pain.

I recently saw this doctor for my back. He said nothing was wrong! I have another doctor now and I'm having surgery for bone spurs and a failed fusion! Abraham is a very poor doctor! He also has a bad attitude. He can't read MRI's or diagnose at all! He should be fired!
