Ratings for Dr. A. Abdelgader
This "Doctor" is the most negligent, useless, careless, arrogant "Doctor" I have ever seen. He took 2 minutes to review my "chart" from my primary physician. Decided it was fibromyalgia---which I now know is very wrong (osteoarthritis &rheumatoid arthritis). He should never be allowed to practice. We were disgusted at his lack of care, procedure, examination and total ignorance. He deserves a negative score. If You need a rheumatologist , stay far away from this quack.
Saw this Dr. (And I use that term loosely) 4 years ago. I tested positive for RA and he sent me for nuclear scan which showed OA and bursitis. His response was, you are not bad enough yet for me to help you. Isnt the purpose of catching it early to try and halt or slow progression? Needless to say, 4 years later and a new Rheumatologist, I am to far gone (@47 years old) to be helped and I have to see an orthopedic surgeon. Send that man back to medical school!
One of the worst specialist's I've ever dealt with. When I asked him what he think's were potential causes he said I was just one of the unfortunate ones and laughed. He was always extremely rude and he had put me on biologics and did not send me for bloodwork and he also wanted me to continue with the biologic even though I had multiple severe side effects to it. Stay away!
If I could have given this doctor a zero, I would have! A total waste of time and an appointment that lasted less than five minutes. I was sent there by the ER doctor at the hospital, but though seen right away by Abdelgader, his apathy and unwillingness to do anything was blatant. I would NEVER recommend this 'doctor' and would dissuade anyone from wasting their time by going to see him or putting their care in his hands. I seriously wondered if he had a medical degree! I can't comment on his office staff as my time in his office was too short.
Staff is always polite. However, this doctor is totally indifferent and is quick to diagnose you even before x-rays. He loves to push cortisone injections and after trying them several times with no relief, I told him that I refuse to get anymore because they don't help me, he then refuse to see me anymore. Good riddance!!!
I had a terrible experience at this office. Firstly, the receptionist was rude and unkind. Not only to me but to other patients. Then the doctor himself was dismissive of my concerns. He didn't listen to my questions or comments. All he suggested was cortisone injections. He gave me a form for blood work and didnt explain what it was for. TERRIBLE bed side manner. I would have been better off not seeing him. Please see another rheumatologistil if you can. He is a waste of your time.
