Dr. Aboka and his staff is GREAT! His staff makes you feel so comfortable each and every visit. I had so much fun getting my X-rays done. The tech had me laughing. So when I normally would have been nervous I was at ease. Dr. Aboka, what can I say about him, he's the best. If it wasn't for him I would still be in worlds of pain. ð
Highly Recommend Dr. Aboka

I saw Dr. ABOKA for a torn rotator cuff. The office staff was very friendly, welcoming and professional as was the nurse. Dr. Aboka was very knowledgeable and took the time to really go over what was going on with my shoulder and discuss a plan for treatment. He was not pushy but laid out the options for me. I ended up having Dr. Aboka do surgery for my torn rotator cuff. I am two weeks post op and feel very comfortable with the work Dr. Aboka did on my shoulder. The office staff has been very helpful in follow up and I would definitely recommend Dr. Aboka to anyone in a similar situation and I would have no issue returning to see him if needed in the future for another issue.
