Let me begin by saying that I like my doctors to be smart and personable. Dr. Abdulian might be smart (although I couldn’t say that for sure), BUT Dr. Abdulian is not personable, at all.
During my initial consultation, he didn’t make me feel comfortable at all.
He didn’t really seem too interested in listening to me, and he seemed completely preoccupied with his computer screen.
He recommended a colonoscopy, and against my better judgement, I booked one with him.
The day of the colonoscopy, he didn’t bother to meet me and my spouse beforehand.
When I was wheeled into the procedure room, he was once again staring at a computer screen and he didn’t bother to acknowledge my existence.
Dude, you’re about to perform a colonoscopy on me, is it really too much to have a pleasant exchange with me before you perform the procedure?
After the procedure was done, and I was recovering in the recovery room, he did not show up for awhile.
In fact, there was another patient of his waiting in there with me for him to show up.
When he finally appeared, he once again conducted himself in a way that was demeaning of my personhood.
He walked past us, didn’t even slow down, and shouted across the room that everything (thankfully) was normal.
If a doctor has no time or interest in treating me like a human being, I’d rather be treated by someone else.
