Dr Howard Abrams is a fantastic Cardiologist,went to see him because my incompetent family Phisician told me that my EKG was good but not great after his incompetent staff/ nurse tried 5 times without a good reading.He was so Terrill in every aspect and so simple explaining every detail in simple English.Thank God I walked out of his office so re leaved with a clean picture of health and a healthy heart.This Dr is a 5 *****++++.

Dr. Abrams is an excellent, straightforward, highly competent doctor. He treated me for two heart ailments and I was completely satisfied with both issues being resolved properly. Although he is not a hugs and kisses sort of doctor, he gives you the information you need in a manner that is understandable. Had I not moved to the East Coast, he would still be my cardiologist.
