Very thorough, very informative


2 hours to be told to go to neurologist when neurologist sent me for consultation


My long-standing post-op appointment to see Dr. Abdulhak was canceled just days before and his office did not want to schedule me until January. I have recently had numbness & tingling in leg and arm so this was not acceptable. Dr. RELUNCTANTLY got on phone call and was extremely rude. He finally conceded to an appointment the next day so I would not interrupt his vacation. I was not told until I got to office that I needed X-rays so I went downstairs and got them since they said I had to wait at least an hour anyways. When Dr. Showed up the rudeness and disrespect continued. Extremely unsatisfactory visit since his attitude toward me was superior and dismissive. I was not given a clear reason for my symptoms and he has ordered an MRI for my cervical spine only. He would not add lumbar spine. My fusion was L4&5. He insisted it was an upper spine issue but since my leg is involved, I have been told by another doctor that lumbar spine should receive an MRI also. I need the reassurance that it is healing and not causing this constant numbness and tingling. Dr. Abdulhak certainly did not provide me with the answers I was seeking and I'm still extremely concerned about my symptoms. I will be seeking other opinions.


Over the top the Dr is excellent, he and his team care about their patients and so does everyone at Henery Ford
