My whole family have been patients of Dr. Abernathy for 5 years now. I have never had such an attentive and caring doctor. I never feel rushed and he really listens to what I have to say. He responds quickly to any questions I may have and actually has called me personally. Even though his practice moved to a location that is a lot farther for me and getting in to see him takes a little longer, he's totally worth the trip and wait.

I like Meritas and had good care with prior doctor there. However, for this new doctor I had a 50 minute wait to see him for 5 minutes. He checked my ears and throat, but didn't even check my breathing. He wasn't going to give me any medicine unless it was steroid prednisone (too many side effects for me). I finally suggested a specific antibiotic and talked him into giving me a prescription.

I have been seeing Dr Abernathy for over two years and find him to be a genuine caring physician. He focuses solely on you when you are in his office and respects your opinion for a treatment plan. I would recommend him highly to anyone.

Dr. Abernathy is great. He is caring & I have complete confidence in him. He has referred me to several specialists & the ones he has chosen have been spot on. He has been my primary physician for 2 years & I feel so blessed to have found him. His office is in the clinic inside St. Luke's Hospital Smithville & is a part of the St. Luke's system. Any other St. Luke's facility he sends me to can see my entire medical record instantly. I have more confidence in my medical care than I have ever had.
