Ratings for Dr. M.M. Abed
I was referred to him for removal/insertion of an iud. I shouldn't have gone through with it once I saw him fumbling around with a handful of gloves (not pulling them out of a sterile box. The insertion was much more painful than my first one. He dangled the old out in the air, asked if I wanted to keep it (?). When I told him I was uncomfortable, he called me a chicken. He didn't have his tools set out. He needed scissors at the end so he searched through a stack of sterile packs, like you would a stack of mail, until he found them. I'm concerned with his overall lack of sanitation. Thankfully, my procedure was very basic, non surgical. Reading through the ratings, it appears that most of the favourable ones are from many years ago. So he very well may have been a good doctor, but I don't think he is any more.
Friendly doctor. I think he asks a lot of questions because he genuinely cares about his patients. He made small talk, which was nice and to make me feel more comfortable. He asked about my work, etc. I think he was trying to put me at ease.
I suffer from Lupus and had two cysts in my abdomen that required surgery. He was excellent at answering all my questions, explaining about the surgery, and sending information to my family doctor. The incision for the C-section has healed well and he did not make as big of an incision as he expected he had to. Everyday he checked on me in the hospital. He even ensured that the nurses contacted the appropriate doctors required for follow-ups based on various tests administered at the hospital. This was the first surgery I've ever had. From the multiple doctors I have to see based on my Lupus he is the best and most knowledgeable.
Right from the beginning, I told Dr. Abed that my husband and I were struggling to become pregnant. His response was, "I will solve this problem. You will be pregnant, even if we have to shove you full of fertility pills until you are pregnant." I'm not sure if this was a joke, but it made me feel even more uncomfortable than I already was. When my husband and I asked him to clarify the purpose and instruction to a prescribed procedure, he told us that we could just look online. Finally, at the end of the appointment, we asked him if he would like us to call to receive the results of a procedure or if he would have his office call us to book an appointment and his response was, "Yeah. You could come back if you want." I felt unsupported, ill-equipped, anxious, and that I wasted my time.
I seen Dr. Abed for a Colposcopy and laser treatment after. I found him to be very nice and knowledgeable. He made me feel comfortable. His staff was great my first visit, however I tried to call twice regarding issues after my laser treatment and did not receive a call back. I am annoyed as Dr. Abed had said to call his office should I have problems. Anyway. I would recommend this doctor.
Dr. Abed made me extremely uncomfortable right off the bat when he first started asking me personal questions like what my father does for a living. He was also taking unnecessary notes like what faculty I'm studying in school. After I told him I wanted to go see a different Doctor, he still wanted to hear my heartbeat which was completely pointless. This was a disgusting experience for me and I suggest no one to see this doctor.
This doctor was incredibly kind and patient with me. I needed a biopsy and he took the time to answer every question explain everything thouroughly and give me all the information I needed. Definitely would recommend for anyone needing a gynecology consult.
He was so friendly and understanding with my first pregnancy. He was there for my delivery and follow up. He is semi retired so won't be following me for my second pregnancy. This is unfortunate because he is an excellent doctor and he really knows what he is doing on top of making you feel important.
