This is one of the best pediatricians we have been to in a long time. It’s been really hard to find a good one, and I think we have found her. Would highly recommend this doctor!


Dr. Abidi is wonderful with children and a great doctor. Answering all the parents questions and concerns. I would recommend her to any parents.


Dr. Abidi was excellent. We have been to 3 different doctors for our kids who are both under the age of two and she is the first one that we were comfortable with. She was very knowledgeable…great with the babies/kids….and friendly. You got the feeling that she really cared. A lot of doctors treat you like you are another appt. I highly recommend her and am glad that we found her as we are new to the area.


I always am satisfied with the time she spends with us and answering the questions we have.
