      I was referred to Dr. Abbadessa for a routine cancer screening colonoscopy. It was scheduled promptly and conveniently for me, was managed well from scheduling until the appointment date, was on time, and went very smoothly. Obviously they have this procedure down pat. There was a little mix-up with the prescription but that was partly my fault for not picking it up a week in advance per their recommendation. That too was worked out satisfactorily. I recommend.

      I have seen Dr. Abbadessa for a couple of years now. He is not the same man that first treated me. He is a capable physician, but he treats his staff terribly. On a recent visit, I heard him yelling at one of the assistants through the door. He spoke to more than one staff member like they were stupid. Finally, the billing is all messed up, as well. He billed my insurance for services he did not perform on me. I wish the old Dr. Abbadessa would come back.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
