Dr. Abdelhani was great and so was his staff. I called to make an appointment and was seen on the same day. Dr. Abdelhani was thorough in his examination, knowledgeable about my diagnosis, patient in answering my questions, and humorous. He put my mind at ease about my diagnosis, and I look forward to being treated by him. The office staff and nurse were polite and professional. I definitely recommend Dr. Abdelghani!

I was hoping to have a better experience than I did with this doctor but, one thing is for sure he is very rude and seems like he just goes to every room and tells the patient the same thing. I have never been here and he tells me that the tests seem to be the same as last time, confused I tell him I have never been here then he asks what I’m there for. He then asks what I do for work then proceeds to answer well you must not do anything since you have kids. At the end of the visit after he told me there is a chance I could go blind he asks if I have any questions, shocked by what I was told I tell him no so he just opens the door and says bye!! He has no bedside manner, very rude and disrespectful. I’m glad others have had a great experience with him but, I WILL NOT recommend this doctor to anyone and I will not return here!
