Dr. Abrams is "to the point"! He greets you warmly and gets down to business. He is very thorough with you in discussing how you are feeling, reviews your medications, continues with his examination which is not invasive (in my case) and kindly lets you know how your doing health wise. He is not much for small talk, which is fine with me. I have confidence in Dr. Abrams and hope to continue using him as my cardiologist.

Dr. Abrams has prescribed me a couple of standard medications one of which is available at a lower dose over the counter. During the Covid-19 crisis I needed a refill because he did not prescribe them with refills and he denied me. I know this is done for other patients in this practice because I have family members who go there and have no issues getting refills as a curtsy. This is about making me go into a doctors office so they can bill my insurance for a visit for a medication that should have just been refilled. This is not only is unnecessary but puts me and others in harms way of getting covid-19. This is one of the reasons out healthcare system is broken!

Dr David Abrams has been my families Heart doctor for more than 30 years. He listens, he explains things well, and he is a caring person. I look forward to my annual visit with Dr. Abrams each year and know I can call anytime in between when I have a concern. The staff at the appointments desk are helpful in setting an appointment, the nurses are helpful when you don't need to talk to the doctor and the technicians administer tests with the greatest of care and ease.

Dr. Abrams has given me decades of extra life. My father died of an infarction at age 77, still a very active and healthy person otherwise. Dr Abrams, and Dr. Rodgers before him at Austin Heart, found that I was on my dad’s trajectory. Thirty years ago, I would have been a dead man. But they repaired me. Today at age 86, I am still running. Thank you, Austin Heart, and Dr. David Abrams especially.
