Great doc!!!
Very friendly and courteous.
I have already recommended Dr Abrams every time I have a chance. You often hear stereotypes about surgeons, that they don't care about the patient just the procedure, they are cold, they have a huge ego. Dr Abrams could not be more kind, compassionate and care more about his patience, in addition to being an amazingly talented doctor. His bedside manner may not be something that can be taught to other surgeons, but if it can be, he should be doing it.
