Staff is consistently friendly and most helpful. Dr. Abbas has exceeded all my expectations as an effective physician. He takes the necessary time to probe and resolve issues as well as explains my treatment in easy terminology. He genuinely cares and treats the whole person as opposed to symptoms only. Dr. Abbas remains exceptional as compared to other doctors I've had.

Dr. Abbas is a kind, compassionate doctor. He takes his time with you & he listens. Not only has he helped me with my Fibromyalgia, he also recommended to me the doctor I used for my hand surgery. And it was a great recommendation!! Good staff & not much waiting time.

Dr Abbas is one of the most compassionate individuals I have ever met. He explained things in a manner to where I could fully understand. He takes time for his patients and I didbt feel I was been rushed so he could move on to something else. He also has a terrific staff that is very knowledgeable. I have absolutely no complaints.

Unsure why so many positive reviews. He promised help and control of my fibromyalgia, ordered an expensive sleep study (I do not have sleep Apnea) and prescribed Gabapentin. Told to increase dose every 3 days but no guidance on max dose. Did not review blood work I brought him, and when I showed him my "FM/A" test results he laughed and threw the results back at me. 2nd visit no exam, offered no support for side effects incl weight gain or swelling. Zero compassion for pain or patient support.

My husband visited Dr. Abbas for Lupus. Within days. a week of seeing him-- my husband's condition had improved from zero to 60! We had left the previous Doctor because he was trying to only determine what was causing my husband's flare ups, rather than treating the actual problem. Dr. Abbas is a great listener, explains it easily and above all a medical professional you can trust. With a help of a dermatologist and Dr. Abbas, we got my husband's flare up under control.

This was my first visit as a referral to Dr Abbas. I appreciate the time he took to listen, and review my case history. I felt confident about his plan of action, and would be comfortable referring him to others.

Dr Abbas is very thorough in his examination and takes notes about each observation he makes. On my wife's follow-up visit he referred to his notes to carefully assess the effectiveness of the treatment he prescribed. I found it especially satisfying how he read her face, body language and her ability to grip in order to record accurate scores to the best of his ability. He very well spoken, listens carefully, answers all of our questions. It is clear I could not have found a better doctor

Outstanding!! He took as much time as was needed & didn't act like he was in a hurry. Explained everything in great detail in away we could understand. Was very pleasant, maintained eye contact plus his countenance was one of confidence and not arrogance as most Dr.'s do.

This was my first visit with Dr. Abbas a couple of days ago. He took his time, to listen to me, not assume anything about me and came up with an actual diagnosis, which is something 5 previous doctors could never do. He was very straightforward about my treatment plan and suggested a low impact exercise that could help me lose weight and maintain my lifestyle with the new diagnosis. I can now move forward in trying to control the disease process. Thank you Dr. Abbas!!!
