Dr. Abbott's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Abbott "Dr. Abbott has always felt at home in two worlds, the world of science and the world of art. It's part of what draws her to the field of dermatology, where you need both skills to bring out healthy and beautiful skin. "I feel like all my life I have been trying to combine those two," Dr. Abbott says. "In college, I majored in both art and biology. I got my master's in Medical Illustration, and I did a fellowship in Cosmetic Dermatology. I am a very visual person. Any treatment that I do for a patient, I would want to be aesthetically pleasing." The visual appeal may have been what started Dr. Abbott's interest in dermatology, but what keeps her going is the variety of people she gets to help. Dr. Abbott also completed an internship in Pediatrics at Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville. And as such, she feels she has expertise in Pediatric Dermatology and Cosmetic Dermatology. "What I mostly love about dermatology is the multi-generational factor," Dr. Abbott says. "I love that I see kids and World War II vets in the same day." To get the most out of your partnership with your dermatologist, Dr. Abbott recommends understanding your medical needs. "Be educated, know your own medications, and know your medical history," she says. "I like to work together to treat your diseases and concerns." Dr. Abbott is a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology and American Society of Dermatologic Surgery."

I was not pleased with the way Dr. Abbott treated me. She found something funny about my condition and was laughing for no reason at all. I wouldn't recommend her to anyone.

I am not the type of person to write reviews. This review, in fact, is the only review I've written but I feel it's an important one to write. I was diagnosed with melanoma in 2014 by a dermatologist not affiliated with Dr. Abbott. This diagnosis came after Dr. Abbott failed to correctly remove and...more

Time with Dr. Abbott was bittersweet. Bitter because she improperly diagnosed me for a disease without even having all of my blood work. The sweet part came after the biopsy the results proved that she was wrong. She didn't even apologize for Mis-diagnosing me & having me concerned about my life...more

I came to Dr. Abbott with a botched cyst removal. I had a hole in my back that never healed. She re-excised the site, helped distract me during the procedure, and brought to a close a long and painful period for me. She is great.
