Dr. Abrams is the Best! He is intelligent, diligent, and caring. He's been my cardiologist for ten years., and I know what I'm talking about.
in Austin, TX |
Professional, thorough, detail-oriented, compassionate and a good listener. No waiting in the waiting room. Nice drinks and snacks too : )
in Austin, TX |
Dr. Abrams is very competent, organized and thorough. He listens and always asks if the patient has any questions or concerns. Often in today’s medical environment, there is a “rushed in and out for the next patient” atmosphere. Dr. Abrams always takes the necessary time to provide excellent professional expertise and medical knowledge in a caring way.
in Austin, TX |
I found Dr. Abrams to be thorough in his examination. His advice to have a stress test was on point and I have set it up. A very good listener who took notes the entire time of my visit. Definitely recommend him!
in Cedar Park, TX |
We really love Dr Abrams. He's very intelligent and explains in layman' terms. We have every confidence in his abilities and are so happy that he is the dr that we chose for heart health.
in Cedar Park, TX |
I have been going to Dr. Abrams for about 14 years.. I have had stents and by pass surgery and he gives the directions to the cardiologist that are doing the procedures He listens when I tell him if I am having any health issues and knows exactly what the next step should be. He is great!
in Lockhart, TX |
Dr. Abrams is simply the best. He diagnosed my husband's problem in about 5 minutes, but he didn't stop there. He went right down the hall and got us an appointment at Texas Arrhythmia, where they installed a pacemaker the same day. It just doesn't get any better than Austin Heart Hospital. The whole staff was outstanding from start to finish.

I give Dr David Abrams five stars unreservedly, and I would give him even more if it were possible. When I first went to see him, I wasn't even sure I had a problem, I was somewhat embarrassed to be consulting a heart doctor, of all things, for a little burning sensation in my chest. Turns out my LAD was blocked 99%, a situation called the "widow maker" when it occurs in men. If it hadn't been for Dr Abrams' knowledge and expertise, I would have been dead 19 years ago. You bet I recommend him!
Excellent care and good explanations..

I've been seeing Dr. Abrams for over 25 years. He is certainly one of the reasons I'm still alive and healthy today.
in Austin, TX |
I really love and trust Dr. Abrams. He is down-to-earth and friendly, kind of unusual for a cardiologist, in my opinion. I love that at the end of the visit, he walks me out and hands me off to the person checking me out. But it is his knowledge that keeps me coming back...very smart doctor!
in Austin, TX |
Dr. Abrams is my primary cardiologist, and I have great confidence that he is in charge of my heart care. He communicates well with me, with another cardiologist who has a specialty skill that i have had need of, and with my family physician who needs to be in the loop.
in Austin, TX |
I was so impressed with Dr. Abrams at my husband's appointment that I scheduled a cardiac check up for myself. My husband has had some health issues that we had to rule out as being heart related, Dr Abrams was very thorough with the testing and it was determined not to be a heart issue.
in Round Top, TX |
Dr. Abrams is an outstanding cardiologist within an outstanding practice. He is focused, direct, considerate, and precise in his communication with the patient and other family members. When I was with him, I was the only thing he was concerned about. He is technically modern but with years of experience that he applied specifically to my situation. He is also an intense listener to what the patient and other family members say.

I came back to the Dr. after years away and having less than satisfactory tenure with another cardio. David immediately caught up with my history and adjusted my care making a difference in my quality of care and life. I trust him and thats number one for me.

Dr, Abrams has been my doctor for several years He is always showing that he care about my health and stays on top of everything. I have great confidence in his decision that he makes on my medication and refills. His concern for my health is what I want to see in a doctor and I trust Him in all his decisions and fill very confident in his treating me as his heart patient. I would recommend my family and friends to use him. .

When it comes to cardiologists---Dr. Abrams is the best! He is very thorough, makes sure you understand his directions/diagnosis---does not talk "over your head".

Dr. Abrams has been our family cardiologist since the 1980s when my Dad had a heart attack and was rushed to the ER. Thank God for us Dr. Abrams was on call. He has been our extended family cardiologist ever since.
in Austin, TX |
The Heart Hospital of Austin and specifically Dr Abrams have been a tremendous resource for me over the past year. Having been referred to him by surgeon Dr Scholl, I found Dr Abrams to be 1) very attentive, 2) very thorough, 3) very direct, and 4) very competent. When you leave his office you have a clear understanding of your condition if you listen to him. If you need other skills or referrals he is an advocate on your behalf and makes things happen with dessgretion. I recommend him.
