What do patients have to say about you?

I started visiting Dr. El Abd 5 years ago at Newton Wellesley Hospital for an extremely painful pinched nerve/herniated disk in my lower back. Now that he has his own practice, I find it to be much more easy and convenient to make appointments. Dr. El Abd is a true lifesaver in my opinion. I am happy to report that I have essentially lived back pain-free since seeing him for spinal injections - which for me is about twice per year. Thank you, Dr. El Abd and Team! I am forever grateful! I would recommend this practice to anyone in need of a spine doctor or considering their options.

My husband Jim has been seen by dr abd for a year, he is an excellent dr and has had only positive results from the treatments he received. He highly recommends him.

I’m an RN and would not go to anyone else! Omar El Abd, MD is amazing! I’ve been going to him for about 10 year. He’s always very pleasant, down to earth and trustworthy. His staff has always been very caring, as well. I’ve hardly felt any of the 18 spinal injections that he’s given me.

I’m lucky to have found him!!
