Dr Abla and his nurse Maureen have always been helpful and knowledgeable in every way. I've suggested Dr Abla to many people who may be contemplating surgery.

Wonderful doctor and staff. Would recommend Dr Abla to friends and relatives because of his wonderful bedside manner and helpful staff. He listens to his patients and takes time with them to ensure you understand procedures.n

I really liked the physicians assistant she was very nice and caring. The actual doctor barely spent a few minutes in the room and basically dismissed me with physical therapy which I feel was not the best recommendation. I felt that my symptoms were passed off and ignored. I am suppose to return in a month for which I have an appointment but at this point I am not sure if I will be keeping it.
