I am very pleased with Dr. Abla and the results of my Herniated Disc (C4-C5) surgery I had on July 31, 2014. He was very thorough with the the explanation of the surgery and any potential side effects. Dr. Abla is a doctor who genuinely cares about his patients, and his professional confidence and knowledge is immediately known when he walks into a room. I have the utmost respect for him. Without hesistation I would recommend Dr. Abla to my family and friends. The office personnel was also very friendly, informative and patient with me, especially PA Hope George. and Mrs. Abla. I am very fortunate to have had Dr. Abla and his staff care for me.
I went to see Doctor Abla in December of 2013 after suffering with chronic neck, arm, and shoulder pain for several months. My PPO had prepared me well for the potential diagnosis and he was correct. 20 minutes with Doctor Abla and his easy to understand explanation and I was scheduled for ACDF surgery in January of 2014. Surgery went well and i was back home after a night in the hospital. Follow up by Doctor Abla and his assistant was excellent, I truly felt that i understood everything that was going to happen over the next few months and I was prepared for the PT and limited lifting etc 1 year later I have just had my last visit with Doctor Abla and left with a clean bill of health. I have some minor numbness in my right index finger but this is nothing compared to the pain and numbness I had a year ago. Given that this was my first ever surgery and at the age of 52 I was extremely nervous about it (in fact my first time in hospital) Doctor Abla did everything he could to ensure I was at ease and well prepared for the surgery. He is professional and efficient with his time which I respected as my time is also important. If I had questions I always felt that I could ask them and would get a satisfactory answer. His office staff are wonderful making the follow up visits easy for me. I am glad I picked Doctor Abla and would not hestiate to reccomend him to others. http://www.vitals.com/doctors/Dr_Adnan_Abla/reviews#ixzz3NyicMjyF
I was very pleased with Dr. Abla and the results of my Herniated Disc surgery I had on September 15, 2012. He was very thorough with the the explanation of the surgery and any side effects. I fortunately have no permanent side effects. I would recommend Dr. Abla to my family and friends. I returned to full time 40+ hours of office work within 8 weeks. The office personnel was very informative and patient with me, I tend to ask a lot of questions.
I have been a patient of Dr. Abla for many years. I can't describe how much respect I have for the decisions he has made over years. When I was younger he helped me avoid a surgery that I didn't need at the time by using physical therapy and pain treatment. He helped me recover and live an active lifestyle for many years. I was recently injured again to the point where I needed surgery. I couldn't walk or stand for any period of time. I had surgery in April of 2013. 5 months later I am swimming and hiking and cleared for regular activity. I cannot thank Dr. Abla enough and would recommend him to any person that has any need for his services. [I've posted this other places, but it's true]
Dr. Abla basically worked a miracle for me. My quality of life was near zero, between the pain and the inability to walk. He performed a surgical discectomy in my cervical spine, removing a disc that had been smashing my spinal cord nearly in half. Dr. Abla told me to expect weeks of in-patient rehab and months or years of physical therapy with no guarantee of ever getting back to normal. But I was up and walking the day after the surgery, and just a few weeks later I am feeling better than I have in years. I have my life back thanks to the expert work of Dr. Abla.
Great Doctor!! I had a micro diskectomy on L5-S-17 years ago and I was walking the same night of the surgery. I was to work in 3 weeks. Now 7 years later and my back is bad again (degenrative disk with bone spurs)I'm going back to him. I would trust him with my life.
I was apprehensive about having surgery, but after having endured years of back pain and trying a number of treatment, I was out of options. I could not walk more than a few yards without intense and debilitating pain...even getting a loaf of bread from the store was a monumental and excruciatingly exercise. From my first meeting with Dr. Adnan Abla, I felt I had come to the right doctor. Extensive surgery was performed - the day following surgery I continued to have pain and was concerned the operation might have been a failure. Day two I felt better, and from then on continued to improve rapidly. Three months after surgery I was able to walk miles without pain, and even climbed a mountain; now, eight months later, I enjoy life again, swimming, bike-riding and long walks. (I'm 73 years old, by the way.) Dr. Abla is great!!
