Dr. Abad was extremely personable & immediately put me at ease & I felt I was in very capable hands. He explained what & why he was going to do the procedure, while making sure I was comfortable the hour I was there. I hope Dr. Abad's Surgical Oncology services are never needed, but would definitely contact his office If I did & would recommend him to others.

Efficiency and Professionalism while providing me with a comfort level being that it was the 1st time I was at the center & nervous. While waiting to have what turned out to fortunately be a minor procedure, I was able to watch how each person was greeted in the waiting room with kindness & respect as they were brought to see their physician for their treatments.

Dr. Abad is the epitome of what any patient should want in a physician"surgeon, but especially because when dealing with cancer. Dr. Abad took the time that was necessary before the surgery, and now during the recovery, to ensure all my questions were answered completely and in a manner that I could understand. My family and I definitely feel so very blessed that I was fortunate to be in Dr. Abad's care. Fifteen years ago, when living in Ohio, I had prostate cancer, and I chose to travel from the suburbs of Dayton to the Cleveland Clinic for my surgery. When I was diagnosed this past June with esophageal cancer and before meeting Dr. Abad, my family discussed if a second opinion at the Cleveland Clinic was necessary. However, after meeting Dr. Abad, I made the wise and proper decision to remain in his care. My family and I are so grateful to Dr. Abad, and we will likely never be able to adequately express our deepest appreciation for his giftedness as a physician and surgeon. In short, Dr. Abad is amazing.

Nothing is ever too much to asks Dr Abad at the Cancer Center in front of Delnor Hospital and his medical assistant Maryanne were so personable. Dr Abad explained all the aspects of my melanoma and how he was going to excise it. The depth ad width. What type it was the danger of it and his treatment l. I also had a blood draw with Linda who was fantastic. The tech who took me into the room to wait and get my information was fabulous we laughed had good conversation and she was interested in me. The lady at the entrance was so helpful and nice. The receptionist who checked me in was just as nice. I also had an X-ray and an EKG at Delnor both of the techs were friendly and were as well interested in me. I love north Western and Delnor. I was at both locations today 11/3/20. What a great set of teams u have. Good job.

This can relate back to what I initially wrote. Dr. Abad is calming, and interested in me as a person and not just as a patient. Explanations of the results of my MRI were clear. All my questions were answered. I am very thankful for the care.

Dr. Abad is a very ideal doctor expected of any patient. He has a very good rapport with the patient-- he listens, not rush the patient and responds tactfully, explains the issues and concerns well. As his patient today, I was very comfortable in asking him questions about my medical condition. He was my mother's surgeon, too before Covid -19 lockdown, so he has no idea that we met already before, because of the face mask we're wearing, covering our face. But, he's consistent with his impressive demeanor! I'm proud of him as a doctor at Northwestern Medicine Hospital System.

Dr. Abad is a highly intelligent and personable surgeon who cares about the wellbeing of his patients. He listens extremely well, is down to earth, and is excellent at what he does. It has been a week since my surgery and he and his team have already follow up 3 times to make sure I'm recovering well at home. I would recommend him to my friends and family.
