My PCP sent me to dr abid. He had been in touch with by PCP and when he first saw me he asked when I was doing there. I told him he had all Dr Fana‘s records in front of him and he should understand that my numbers were riding and there was no reason found. He looked directly at me and told me that I did not have cancer. Further research showed that I had stage 4 lung cancer. He never got up from his desk . And never examined me. Never ordered any tests. He is a disgrace

I have been treated by Dr. ABID and staff going on 8 years. They have been a blessing through the good times dealing with CLL and Lymphoma and the rough illness I have lately. I hardly recommend this group.

He nearly killed me. Would only treat me when I was very ill. Dr Abid was concerned about not getting paid by my large health insurance company if he treated me too often.. I changed doctors, now I get regular treatment , I am healthier. my new doctor gets paid regularly
