Complications of surgery/ Post surgery problems /Post surgery diagnosis not appropriate
Self-verified patient of Dr. Faruk S Abuzzahab Jr - Posted on May 6th, 2017
Advised Dr. of problems right away in the hospital. Dr. Rick was very curt, not compassionate and denied that the surgery caused complications which was proved otherwise by tests performed by 2 neurologists. His behavior is unacceptable. This was a life changer for me and my family. To this day I have permanent nerve damage and I am disabled. I hope this review helps others to make an informed decision when choosing a orthopedic surgeon.
By far the best doctor and surgeon I've ever met

I've had two surgeries with him and he walked me through step by step. He made me feel very comfortable and at ease. He showed that he was very caring about me, especially after surgery. He came in multiple times post op to make sure I was comfortable. I wouldn't choose another surgeon for any other ortho procedure. Even with injuries I didn't need surgery on, he made sure I was back to my normal self as soon as possible. My favorite part is he takes a very conservative approach to his patients and does his best to avoid surgery if you really don't need it. I had two other conditions where other doctors told me I needed surgery and he had me fixed noninvasively within 6 months for a fraction of the cost. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Abuzzahab to anyone who is looking for a new doctor or a second opinion for a pre existing condition. He is caring, has a great sense of humor, and definitely knows what he's doing in the field of medicine! If you don't believe me, look at his list of universities. He's very educated, and you can tell in any of your visits with him. I hope he never retires because I never want to find another ortho doctor again!
