I have been a patient of Dr. Abbarah's for about 3 years and have only been pleased with his work. He truly cares about his patients and has spent a great deal of time and effort on me for each of my visits. He is very intelligent and is one of the best doctors I have encountered in my life.

My experience with Dr. Abbarah was fantastic. He is very knowledgeable and truely cares about his patients. I have been a patient for about three years now and have not once been disappointed. My entire experience was great. The staff is very kind and easy to work with and very helpful with getting me in as soon as possible. I would recommend him to all.

One of the best doctors ever! He is very patient and truly caring of your child's well being! Great surgeon and person. He answered all of my questions and made sure I understood everything at the end of the check up. Even though a very busy doctor it is easy to get in. The office is nice and clean, the personnel is amazing. We would recommend him over anyone else.

I sat in the waiting room for almost 45 minutes after my scheduled appointment. The waiting area was disgusting and smelled like people had been smoking there. When we saw him, he kept looking at me through a mirror when he was talking to me. as far as my experience with him as a Dr, he didn't help at all. His solution to my son's constant ear infections was to wash his hands more and come back in a couple of weeks. Absolutely useless. And he never actually answered any questions just had.
in Waterford, MI |
Insurance Scammer! He barely said two words to my child and I, there was 1 nurse running the office so there were multiple interruptions. Both the nurse & doctor were at times rude. He wanted to do surgery requiring putting my child under, claiming the need for facial reconstruction. The surgery was a simple outpatient procedure that could have been completed in less then 30 minutes! It was completed by a different doctor. He was going to put my child under to get more $$ from the insurance!
