Dr. Haider Abbas- Rheumatology is at Lexington Clinic in Lexington, KY. I have been going to him for about 15 years. This respected man is an unbelievable doctor. He really cares about his patients. If I am in the hospital in my town he calls everyday to check on me. He is so intelligent. I have doctors in Pikeville that always want me to follow his instructions. They know how good he is. He just really stays right with his patients. Dr.Abbas is so positive. He takes time to answer ques

Dr. Abbas has kept me alive and functioning for 10 years. After visiting several providers who were unable to help me, Dr.Abbas diagnosed my condition at my first visit. In addition to being an excellent practitioner, Dr. Abbas has never failed to show me his kindness, patience, and understanding. I cannot thank him enough for all he has done for me over the years.

Dr. Abbas is friendly, compassionate, knowledgable, and thorough. I have been seeing him for three years for my rheumatoid arthritis. He always walks me out after the appointment to the receptionist to discuss future appts. and/or lab work. He keeps a very close eye on my labs because I give myself Humira injections. Often when I call his office I am able to speak to him personally and have even been able to talk to him on weekends on his cell. Ireally can't say enough good things about him.

Dr. A basis the kindest Doctor I have ever seen. He is so gentle, though I have severe pain, that I can withstand the exam easily and do not have lingering problems with pain that almost makes my joints unusualness for a short period of time, as has happened with other doctors. it seems to see his patients as individuals, not a name in in a chart.
