What People Say About Dr. Brian Abbott, MD
Reply
While Dr. Abbott was very thorough during my visit, the front office staff was very difficult to communicate with. I tried on multiple times to communicate with a nurse, only to be disconnected twice, have my telephone number mis-recorded, and once left on open speaker to hear and learn of the front-office staff's weekend escapades. Again, Dr. Abbott was a professional, pleasant, and knowledgeable cardiologist, but communicating with him and his nurses proved difficult.
