I highly recommend Dr. Abir

I had a recurring problem that Dr. Abir focused on figuring out the solution to until it was completely taken care of. He was easy to talk to and focused on making me feel like his #1 priority. I would highly recommend him to anyone with colon/rectal issues.

I had a severe case of Diverticulitis which also included a fistula attached to my bladder. I was very blessed to have Dr. Abir perform my surgery, he removed my sigmoid colon and also repaired my bladder laparoscopically with only a 2" incision. while in the hospital Dr. Abir had visited me every morning and even checked in the afternoon one day. I was on my feet walking the next morning in hospital and released in 3 days. Every appointment I have had with Dr. Abir was ontime and I left very well informed. Most of the time I went with a list of questions which were usually answered before I even had an opportunity to ask. Very pleased with every aspect of the experience and would highly recomend Dr. Abir to anyone in need of Colorectal Surgery.
