We love Dr. Aboumatar. We have complete confidence in him. He is always ready to listen, and help where he can.
Would recommend, went to him for a few years until I moved. Very thoughtful, a good listener, cordial and smart. Only wish he could've moved to the new state along with me

I developed Epilepsy about a year ago, and I was so scared and not doing well on the medications they had me on. Dr. Aboumatar may be really knowledgeable, but he is not terribly friendly or comforting.

Less than 5 stars is wrong. He walked me through a fight with Epilepsy, that was won. Approached him after two specialists fell short. Brain operation took care of all problems, just lucky I passed all exams to allow the surgery. He shares all answers to your problems...like or not. Glad I approached him and will never stopped thanking him.

Doesn't listen. Won't listen to what has worked.

Dr. Aboumatar is a kind, caring, and compassionate doctor. He truly listens to his patients' concerns and is able to explain his findings and treatment plan in a manner that is comprehensible and also reassuring. Although I'm certain he is extremely busy, he never seems rushed, whether he is making rounds in the hospital or seeing someone in his office. His staff are courteous, helpful, and efficient in their respective roles and I am always treated with respect both on the phone and in person.

Significant. Dr. Aboumatar has provided me with information, options and guidance regarding seizures. I have had a successful resective surgery and he continues to be a compassionate physician.

Excellent. Knowledgeable, personable and kind.
