The best neurosurgeon ever. I had surgery in nov. 2018. Woke up with instant relief. I have had a lot of surgerys before and by far this was the easiest to heal from. He is very amazing and couldnt ask for anyone better. Dr. Ableum you rock and you also have the most amazing nurse.

Would not suggest seeing this doctor. He told me he could not help me and was very rude on top of that. Does not go out of his way to help someone in need.
