Dr. Joseph J Abularrage has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Don't even consider this doctor

My son, from the birth to almost one year old, was a patient of the doctor. It was the worst experience with this doctor. First, my baby was misdiagnosed with horrible illness. We were dragged through so many tests. Then just received the letter stating he doesn't have it, no apology, no explanation. Besides this, doctor doesn't even knows the name of your child. He smiles and looks very friendly but hardly spends time with a child during the visit. He rushes you out without the chance to ask a question. For a slight problem he sends you to a specialist not because he cares about your baby but because all he cares is his reputation and time. He is always overbooked so you will have to wait even if you are on time.There are so many pediatricians, who actually enjoy working with kids. Choose one of those to raise a happy baby and reduce stress in your life. Stay away from this doctor.

This bad review is truly about Angie the outrageously rude office manager. She is the reason we left the practice. Where to start with her I don't know because I don't have one good thing to say about her. She smokes outside of building, always smells of smoke, gross smokers cough, and long unsanitary yellow nails. She is demeaning to staff in front of patients, rude and difficult with patients. My husband had to put her in her place several times because of the way she tried to speak to him. The last straw for my family was when she hung up the phone on me when confronted with a lie regarding some insurance issues! Crazy I know! She has a serious control complex. The doctors are decent, especially Dr. Takla and Sinesi. Dr. Abularrages wife Peggy is sweet, but when I talked to her about my concerns, and the very bad reviews they were getting online about Angie she basically said- "well we don't read the reviews" aka we don't care. In this age of online everything, I think they should care. Besides why would you not care if your patients are unhappy? Every time I walked into the office the tension was so thick I could cut it with a knife! The rest of the office staff was a constant revolving door. No wonder why. In the end we decided we were not going to pay to send our daughters here anymore. There are so many wonderful doctors in NY, there is just no reason to deal with this type of stuff. I feel silly now staying there for so long. We absolutely love our new pediatrician, and the nice, normal office staff. It makes all the difference. Angie would be great working at the DMV or a used car dealership with her nasty personality. Not with sweet children and their parents. Last word on this practice, stay away!!!!!

Staff is extremely rude, especially Angie. To the point that you cringe when you hear the way she speaks to other patients. Doctors call back hours after contacted for emergency.

Dr. Abularrage gives a lot of consideration to his patients as well as their parents. His office gives the kind of medical care that I know many other patients do not have the advantage of having.
