What People Say About Dr. Durant Abernethy, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
I am a health care professional and am very critical of those in the in this field. Dr Abernethy displays all the positive characteristics that an excellent internal medicine physician should possess. His vast knowledge of all maladies that his patients would present is extraordinarily complete! Of equal importance is the seemingly unlimited time he spends getting to know his patients and their individual personal needs. Dr. Abernethy epidomizes the family doctor who sincerely cares for his patient's needs.

I recently had my annual wellness exam with Dr Abernethy. I am a retired nurse practitioner and have worked with many Doctors. I can honestly say Dr. Abernethy is an exceptional physician who brings genuine interest and casual ease to the room. He spent a solid hour with me, conducted a thorough interview and appropriate exam. He made decisions based on my personal history and we were in complete agreement with my plan of care. It is truly refreshing to find a Doctor with his easy disposition, well rounded knowledge/expertise and who I trust. I have recommended him to many of our friends and all have returned with the same satisfaction. I strongly recommend Dr. Abernethy and hope he stays in Frisco for a very long time.

Dr. Abernethy listens, knows what procedures my insurance plan will allow, explains the plans regarding my health. I am Medicare age and he solved a medical problem that 4 other Doctors couldn't . I feel I was very fortunate to find Dr. Abernethy.

Dr Abernethy was my primary care physician for several years when I lived in Summit County, Colorado. I found him to be an excellent practitioner, always ready to discuss my conditions and provide explanations of what was wrong and how the treatments would help. I would happily recommend him to any friend or family member.

You have no idea how great it is to finally find a doctor that doesn’t make you feel crazy for having a list of crazy symptoms, just helps to find answers... Dr. Abernethy is fantastic... I’ve never felt more comfortable with another doctor, and I’ve never trusted a doctor as much as I trust this man... If all doctors had the patience and will to solve puzzzles and mysteries of the human body like this man, the world would be a better place!

Dr. Abernethy takes time to understand the issues and is knowledgeable in his answers and explanations including drawing things out if need be. I appreciate that he takes a practical approach to his recommendations and prescribed coarse of action. He can speak to the difference in costs for various treatments. Thank you for not being in a hurry! Dolly Jo T.

Dr. Abernethy is a very knowledgeable and competent physician. He answers all of my questions and takes the time necessary to address all of my concerns. He also explains things fully so that I understand. He doesn't order a lot of unnecessary tests, etc. He also promptly renews prescription requests and answers my questions via the Centura Health online system.

He's nice enough until god forbid you ask a question or have a concern about his course of treatment. Also his office is incompetent and can't fill a prescription. I called several times and after several weeks they still hadn't filled the prescriptions creating a dangerous situation. Finally I just went to a new doctor. After I went to a new doctor his office cancelled my other scripts without telling me creating another dangerous situation. I wouldn't recommend Abernathy or his office at all.
