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.

Dr. Abuelem is a good surgeon but once he has operated and hasn't solved all your issues he has no recommendations. He does not think out of the box.

Dr. Abuelem is simply amazing! He is not only a perfectionist at what he does, but he is also the kindest and most caring Doctor you could hope for. His staff, especially his nurse, Shana, and Brandy, are equally kind and caring! I cannot say enough good things about this amazing group!
