    I'm under weather Dr. Abdelfattah was familiar with the material on carpal tunnel given out by the (neurologist Dr. Gupta. This led to some misunderstanding on MY part.

    Dr. Abdelfattah was my "second opinion" doctor - Half-way through my visit, I knew I wanted to operate and care for me. He is outstanding in his manners, care and skill. He treated me with respect, he assuaged my fear and explained every detail of my surgery and after care/PT etc.
