She was condescending and dismissive. Didn't have time for me. Acted as if my ailments were not important. Told me nothing she can do for me and no reason to come back. I've been suffering with osteoarthritis degenerative disc and autoimmune disease that doctors after her found.

Earlier I wrote a review on my Dr. And nurses I was upset that they seem like they never have time to get back to me. What I should have done was to talk to them about the issues but I didn't I understand DR.ABRIL and her associate's have a lot of patients to take care of. And for this I was wrong for posting what I posted earlier on Dr.Abril. but changes can be made with better communications between the staff and patient.

I have been a patient of Dr. Abril around 6 yrs now. She is an extremely thorough doctor, and actually cares about her patients. If there is a concern, she, not her nurse, has called me to check on me. She has found the majority of my diagnosis while doing her tests..no telling where my health would be today without her.

Dr. Annette Abril is an excellant RA doctor as well as my Lupus doctor. When I was referred to Dr Abril in the summer of 2011, I had a list of symptoms that my family doctor had no idea what was wrong with me. I had a rash, fatigue, nausea, diarrhea, muscle aches & short of breath. After a series of test and bloodwork she told me I had SLE lupus with discoid skin lupus and osteoarthritis. She has helped me so much with medication, and with a diagnosis I can gain knowledge about my disease.
