I have been Dr. Abernathy's patient for over 15 years. My confidence in the good Doctor cannot be higher. His professional demeanor and judgement along with his bright and cheerful manner during treatments and examinations breeds patient confidence and security that is rare in the medical field. My wife is also his patient and feels the same as I do. He is a good man and a great Doctor.

In April 2015 my previous Dr.told me that there is nothing else he can do for me and advice my wife and daughter to look for the hospice care .Dr. was convinced that I'm dying. Shocking news did not stop us to look for the second opinion.God works mysterious ways and acupuncturist Dr.Han suggested to see Dr.Abernathy known for his reputation .Big smile and big heart that is how I see Dr.Abernathy.Old school Dr who gives blood back to your veins and hope to your heart.10/8/2016 Gord Shaw
