Patient Comments (6)
Cedar Rapids, IA |
Dr. Abrahamson is capable as a GI Doctor, but it stops there. He had no time to listen to my questions or concerns.He was in such a rush before my colonoscopy that he refused to see me before about a concern beforehand. He became irritable wh, and cut me off. When I attempte to as my question. Kept his back turned and refused to discuss anything. For this reason, he lost another patient. I don’t want to be just another number on his hurried schedule.
Cedar Rapids, IA |
Rude, rude, rude, arrogant, unfriendly, lousy communicator. Hard to know how much knowledge he does/doesn't have or what my situation really is because his bedside manner is so poor and his communication skills are so low. Very condescending and haughty attitude. I requested a new doctor within their practice, but was refused. Behavior completely in line with haughtiness of being the only gastros in town. Fortunately, there's better care just 20 miles away.
Abramson is okay, but not very willing to look for alternative solutions or deal with difficult cases. The office staff are rude/harsh and not understanding of my busy schedule as a college student. Overall, not easy to work with and not very nice.
Cedar Rapids, IA |
I was shocked by the abrupt and harsh nature in which I received results. Both my wife and I were stunned by the poor manner of communication. I would not recommend him based on that alone.

Very professional and tells it like it is. I appreciate that. Appointment times are no better or worse than any other specialist.
Cedar Rapids, IA |
Continue to have problems. Hard to get in to see him. Nurse not very friendly, abrupt. Insurance will not pay for medication and they have no interest in finding another solution. Testing is scheduled far out. College student and cant get an appt when I am home from school.
