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!

This is the best neurosurgeon I've ever been to. And I've had one previous spinal surgery. While my previous surgeon was great, Dr. Abuelem has been wonderful in trying to help me with the spinal issues I'll have for the rest of my life. I have already recommended him to my fiancé for his spinal surgery.
