I love Dr. Abernathie, he is never in a rush, always listens, seems to understand problem when I'm not sure how to explain it. He is extremely courteous and willing to find solutions. So glad I switched to him.

Dr. Abernathie was very thorough. He answered all my questions and took his time, I did not feel rushed. He explained issues about my condition that I hadn't heard from other doctors. Which explained a lot about my pain. I feel my appointment was handled very professionally and I am satisfied with my treatment and diagnosis. I would highly recommend Dr Abernathie.
