Everybody in the office is very nice. They always ask how I'm doing, and really care. When I talk about my history or family history, I can tell they take me seriously and write everything down. Doc even asked for a weekend in order to do a thorough review of my medical history, making me more confident in their ability to catch and treat any issues I might be having.

I have been a patient of Dr. Abbarah for such a long time. My three kids are his patients as well. Dr. Abbarah is one of the best doctors ever in my opinion, he is an amazing surgeon/person and we completely trust him and his abilities. He takes such a good care of his patients. We see him in the Waterford location and the staff is very welcoming and professional. The office is very nice and clean. I would recommend Dr. Abbarah to everyone!!

Dr. Abbarah is a great doctor. He's very knowledgeable and very compassionate about his patients. Dr. Abbarah removed my tonsils in November 2017 and I've never felt better.

Made a weekend appointment. Waiting room small, has drop ceiling that look moldy (see pics). They are using a typewriter to type things. I guess not every office is perfect. However, waiting for 3-4 hours for an appointment, not cool. The receptions would say the other office handles appointments so they can't do nothing about it but that isn't OK either. After 4 hours of waiting, we are greeted by a nice nurse, took the measurements, etc. and put us into the room to wait for the doctor. We saw

Dr. Abbarah is an amazing doctor and he has a wonderful staff as well. He is great at what he does and I've never had such a great experience at a doctor's office before. He is extremely efficient in what he does and he truly cares for all of his patients. Anyone would be lucky to have him as a doctor.
