My primary car doctor for over 10 years
Dr Abovian has been my primary care doctor for over 10 years. Every time I visit him he impresses me with his knowledge of how the body and brain work. I trust him. He listens to me and he really seems to care. He always has an answer for me and he has even taken the time to show me ways to find info on Google! His staff is wonderful. They have always been extremely helpful to me. I would definitely recommend Dr Abovian as a primary care doctor!

terrible place
The doctor doesnt not care about his patients what so ever. i wrote a long review about 2 months ago and i ended up deleting it but this time im not going to take it off. I feel sorry for the people that have to work in that office and listen to complains all day and read negative reviews. to this day i have never walked into an office feeling like this. close down your office youre not considered a doctor in my eyes.

Dr. Abovian , is a great Doctor, comfortable to be around, clean office, good location, pretty easy free parking. My first visit at Dr. Abovian and I am very pleased to say the least. He listened to all of my concerns and he gave me great advice on ways to stay healthy. His staff was very pleasant greeted me right away. The wait time was short considering I was a new patient. The office was clean and the exam was quick and I was very satisfied with everything. After the appointment I was given

I like Dr. Abovian. He probably is one of the most intelligent people I know when it comes to your health. I have changed many dr. offices in the past, and for most reasons is my health is very important to me. I would like my dr. to take enough time to understand every aspect of my life before taking the first step to write me a prescription and dr. Abovian was that dr. for me. I like to stay as close as possible to home remedies and not use any synthetic medicine and glad to be patient here.

I don't know who let him be a doctor. Doesn't even take the time with the patient and does not give authorization to the patient to see a specialist. stay away from this doctor.

I was assigned Dr Abovian through my insurance. I been really sick with the flu and wanted to call in for an appointment today. Receptionist informed me that Dr has no apts. available today, he's not working on Fridays because it's his paper work day and they are closed on weekends. Needless to say I need to find a different Dr. one that actually wants to work and see patients.
