Dr. Abbas is everything you would want in a great provider. He is charismatic and genuine in his approach. I never felt rushed during my visit and he was great with listening to my concerns and giving valuable feedback.

July 29, 2020 1:43 AM

Excellent service provided.

July 20, 2020 2:21 PM

Dr. Abbas is a considerate provider. I feel comfortable seeing him, he answers all my questions. He explains everything in a way I understand and if I have questions I can ask and he explains thoroughly.

July 20, 2020 2:21 PM

During this time of Covid, everyone in the doctors office has been extremely professional maintaining social distance and keeping the exam rooms clean. I appreciate everything they have done.

July 7, 2020 5:53 AM

Great doctor

June 2, 2020 8:01 AM

Really it was a good communication with my visit with this doctor. He listened to me and checked I think what was necessary about my condition. He suggested medication and medical device for my medical condition. He is not my doctor I see regularly and I do not know up to what point he has knows my medical history. I was left content with the suggested and their knowledge thank you.

May 11, 2020 1:40 PM

Dr Abbas was very easy to talk to and gave great explanation to my concerns

May 11, 2020 1:40 PM

He's a great provider, definitely recommend.

April 27, 2020 6:38 PM

this was my 1st visit and due to the covid19 it's hard to be in an office. the team was more than helpful with the zoom video. at 40 I felt old trying the new apps and such. although my video froze a couple of times he did an amazing job

April 27, 2020 6:38 PM

this survey was a little long. I'm a new patient so I haven't been with him for 3 months. I will continue with him if God allows it. I am blessed to say that he has helped me breathe better than I have been able to in 10+ yrs give this dr a raise.

April 22, 2020 8:16 AM

Phone visit during COVID-19 when I had a dry cough & earache. Dr. didn't think I met criteria for testing & diagnosed allergies, prescribed meds. Dr. was clear and focused.

April 6, 2020 3:02 PM

This was a Zoom video visit with Dr. Abbas. We had a good discussion about making sure I was doing everything I could to stay healthy during the stay at home directive for my state. I could hear and see the doctor the whole time. He listened to my questions. I will follow up with the doctor in three months time, when I can have an in person office visit.

April 6, 2020 3:02 PM

Dr. Abbas is a wonderful doctor. I appreciate that he takes time to answer any questions or concerns.

March 22, 2020 7:16 PM

working on his bedside manner . smile more and be less abrupt. I came back 3 days later to see another provider ended having pneumonia. after telling him my concerns were I had pneumonia and he got on my case because I didn't check my temperature. even though I was taking Tylenol and Motrin around the clock.

March 9, 2020 1:24 PM

October 7, 2019 7:00 PM

I've only had one appointment so far, but he is a great doctor. Very polite and understanding. I will definitely be referring family members.

September 30, 2019 7:00 PM

Excellent! Dr. Abbas day down showed no hurry to get to the next patient. He cared about my needs and what was best for my health. Thank you Dr. Abbas!!

September 9, 2019 7:00 PM

My primary care dr. is X for several years now. We are happy with her care. Dr. Abbas helped me recently. He is very attentive and earnestly tries to help his patient. If necessary he looks for ways and tries other meds.

September 8, 2019 7:00 PM

I appreciate the peace of mind this doctor's visit brought me. Thank you Dr. Syed and your staff.

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr Abbas is very thorough and did spend a lot of time with me. My complaint was how long I waited and the professionalism of his staff; his office also is run down. However, he did mention they are opening s new office in a couple of months.

December 3, 2018 6:00 PM

It is very hard to get appointment to this office for the same day or even week. Waiting time in the waiting room is almost one hour every time. This provider (doctor) seemed to be in rush and was very pushy for vaccines! What upset was the fact that prescribed medicine without explaining the side effects and not talking about alternative exams.

November 28, 2018 6:00 PM

Good service.

November 25, 2018 6:00 PM
