Ratings for Dr. Moutasem Abaza
Dropped my former derm. doc. to get on with Dr. Abaza. Very impressed from the start. He's very patient and caring (I require many more Lidocaine shots than normal). He salvaged my left ear lobe during a MOHS surgery, leaving it looking normal. He has "the bedside manner" you expect/want from a doctor. I expect to be a patient of his for some time to come. As for his staff (Palmdale and Ridgecrest offices), I can't say enough good about them. They all know me by name and are very personable. I highly recommend him!
very kind, caring Doctor. sometimes gets busy, everyone wants to see Dr Abaza since he's not always in Valencia, he travels to other locations. so whenever he's in Valencia, he is busy. but I'm fine with the extra wait to see him. very thorough and caring, which is hard to find in doctors nowadays
The doctor trated me for a large basil carcenoma on the top of head. He allowed me to be comfortable by sitting-up rather than being prone. Also, between MOHS examinations he came and checked on me. Finally he gave good directions on post-operative care. In addition his staff was very personable and helpful. In addion he carefully did a couple of biopsies that were not too deep but showed either more minor cancer or just required freezing. -with this kind of doctor why go out of town,
I walked into Dr. Abaza's Valencia office the other day and was treated like a second class citizen. First the entire front desk staff argued with me about my insurance and were extremely rude. It took me an hour to straighten things out with them. When I finally saw Dr. Abaza, he was uncaring about my issues. Though I told him that I had had many medications and treatments before, he prescribed the same medications, even though I specifically told him I had had them previously and they did not work. Nobody cares about you at that office unless you are getting cosmetic surgery of some kind and you look like a Barbie doll. Terrible place to actually take care of medical problems.
The wait was 20 min which was ok for me,a busy office tells me how good the doctor is! the doctor took his time to answer all my questions, he was very kind to me. the lab results took longer than expected but the office called me to appologize since it was the lab's delay. overall,, i had a good experience and i would go back
Dr. was okay. Didn't see him until 30 minutes after my appointment time. Still waiting for lab results, and I feel as if I have gotten the run-around from the staff re: timing. First it was two weeks, now it's looking to be three weeks. Not fun to be left hanging when awaiting a skin diagnosis. Wouldn't go there again and would choose another doctor with a reasonable turnaround time, a week is reasonable, three weeks is ridiculous.
