Dr. Abbas is a great doctor. He is a good listener and has great bedside manners. I have numerous things going on at one time and have been very stressed about the whole thing. On my appointment I had a lot of information to give him and I never felt rushed. He was understanding and ordered additional tests that I needed. He answered all my questions and concerns. When my labs/tests came back, he explained all the results and referred me to another specialist. He was very transparent and honest and I really appreciate that. My particular situation was kind of out of his hands but he definitely referred me to someone else who could help me. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is need of a Rheumatologist.

He cares about the individual patient. He listens to the patient. Combined with his education and experience it is a recipe to win. After 2 years of being toyed with by other doctors I found him. He diagnosed me and we are in a path for life changes.

Dr.Abbas is the perfect doctor for my mom. He is patient & kind. He actually takes the time to ask questions AND listen to her answers. There is no overscheduling of appointments, so no excessive wait times. His staff is also super friendly and helpful as well.

I have been a patient of Dr. Abbas' for a while now. He has always been thorough, kind, and patient with me. I am not the best patient (I have a bad habit of waiting too long between visits) yet I am never made to feel badly about it. He listens to me and I feel like we are working together. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a phenomenal Rheumatologist.

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.

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.
