Dr. Beaule and his team provided world-class care, right here in the nation’s capital. Since my back surgery, I am fully back in action!

Stephen B.Ottawa, 2016 Patient

Dr. Abdelbary and Dr. Meghan, his resident, and the entire surgical/anesthetic team responded to my health situation with clinical mastery that I did not know was even possible. The care was delivered with skill, gifted communication, compassion and inspiring excellence. Thank you for all the wonderful care I received.

Thank you.
