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 a wonderful doctor. He listens to all of your cocerns. Has no problem explaining things to your family members. He never rushes you threw. HE'S A Very CAREING doctor, WITH His PATIENTS AND There family. I hope he will always be my doctor. He is the greatest. His staff is just as wonderful. Shana and Brandi are the greatest!!. Thanks you guys for taking care of me.

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.
