Ratings for Dr. Thomas N. Abdella
Dr. Abdella, when he is actually there, is an okay doctor. However, 2 out of the 4 visits when I came and expected to meet with the doctor, I was told oh, he isn't here or doesn't take patients in the afternoon after the ultrasound was already completed, with an attitude like I was somehow supposed to know. How absolutely unprofessional of the front office staff to not inform patients of this. Our tech we had the first three times we did not have our last visit, and this final tech was awful. She gave us a pile of pictures of her kidneys. No pictures of her face or 3d like our normal tech who also took her time with us. She also said come back in 6 weeks. I asked why, when Dr. Abdella told us last time insurance doesn't cover after 32 weeks. She said because the baby isn't head down, which I countered with the baby has time to still move as I am only 30 weeks. She quickly backtracked the 6 weeks comment. I feel like they have no clue what they are doing and now I am worried I wasted my time going to this doctor!
I was followed back in 2011 for the birth of my first daughter. I'm now 7 weeks pregnant with my second child and am excited to return. I really only saw the Dr. a few times, but he was knowledgeable and friendly. My main review is for Pat, who did our weekly fetal assessments. What an amazing woman. The first time meeting her, my husband and I felt completely at ease and in great hands. She was very careful and thorough and made our experience a positive one!
Dr. Abdella & ultra sound technicians are not very competent at diagnosing conditions/diseases. Our first son, they he said his kidney's were a little larger for gestational stage & there was a calcification (white) spot on his heart (Echogenic Cardiac Focus). Soft markers related to "Down Syndrome". I had a perfectly healthy boy! 2nd baby, again, Abdella talks about my 2nd son's kidney's and I told him, but you told me that with my first son-look at the gestational stage-both similar at the stage. Told me that my son had a left club foot. He said "no big deal, completely correctable". Crushed/worried-Fast forward-6.5 months pregnant, they tell me he doesn't have club foot, but a fracture on his femur and he was possibly going to be a dwarf & bell shaped thorax. Went to High Risk Pregnancy Center for second opinion (3 days later)-my son had Osteogenesis Imperfecta (lethal form). I wish I can write more...Please don't go here! http://www.yelp.com/biz/abdella-thomas-nelson-md-las-vegas
I've been seen by Dr. Abdella for 2 pregnancies, he has been the best specialist i have ever seen. Extremely Professional Caring and Polite. He's staff is the best. Considering the fact that he is a specialist i dint have to wait too long. Waited 30 minutes the first time and around 5 min the following visits. I would definitely recommend Dr. Abdella to my friends. Thank you girls for your care. My babies and i appreciate you all.
This is the worst place i've ever been too i've been there with one of my pregnancies and the staff if super slow they keep calling me to reschedule everyday because they cancelled my appointment the lady said in the voicemail that they cancelled it because first time pregnancies were more important Im never going back there
Dr. Abdella and his lovely sonographers are outstanding gems!!! There was no wait time, easy and fast appointments, and great pics!! Overall this was the most enjoyable professional perinatal ultrasound experience my husband and I have ever had (we have 7 kids. I will go back with all of our pregnancies!!!!
I couldnt believe this doctors lack of caring or concern. And the ultrasound tech told me that my babies head was the yolk sack. I truly cant believe he is a high risk specialist. I wouldnt ever want him anywhere near me or my child ever again.
