It is rare that you find a doctor that is so dedicated to his craft. I could tell that Dr. Abeles hears about the patients and cared about me as an individual. He made me feel at ease when I needed shoulder surgery last month and now I am almost fully recovered thank you

Dr Abeles is outstanding. As well as his office staff. He was able to get my daughter in quickly and fix her wrist fracture which happened in school earlier in the day. She is no w back to climbing on the monkey bars, much to my chagrin. Thank You to Dr Abeles and his Staff PS--Deanna did a great job with the cast.

I would like to say thank you to Dr. Abeles and his staff. He recently took care of my 86-year-old mother who had fallen late at night and dislocated her shoulder. Not only was the shoulder dislocated but it had very bad fracture. Dr. Abeles had to come in in the middle of the night, he was able to fix the shoulder and put it back into the right place. From then on my mother just became absolutely enthralled with Dr. Doug as he calls himself. He continues to be caring and helpful!

Always great seeing Dr Abeles. Very efficient and wonderful bedside manner. I had a new problem and they are always able to get me in quickly.!!! Dr Abeles has always been wonderful. He is calm, funny and insightful with his approach to your care. He was in my provider list for United Health after a car accident and a painful wrist issue. I have not had surgery, my issues have mostly been pain management related. He is extremely pleasant, and funny putting his patients at ease. I found him down

I unreservedly recommend Dr. Abeles when asked for the name of a good orthopedic doctor. I am a devoted hiker; it is my primary form of exercise. Dr. Abeles is part of my team who I count on to keep me strong and able to keep on hiking as I get older. He is really good at listening and genuinely cares about my concerns. I love the fact that there is an MRI facility right there as part of the practice; no need to go across town to another location.
