Dr. Abrams was understanding and kind. He put me at ease about the tests I was scheduling. He did my endoscopy within a week after the office visit. It was a smooth and comfortable procedure. I am glad that I went to him.

Dr Abrahms was treating my Hep C condition years ago and notified me immediately when the cure drug Harvoni was introduced. The cost was astronomical and my insurer refused to pay for it so Dr Abrams along with Walgreens pharmacist submitted an appeal and got a grant approved from the drug manufacturer for treatment. Once my blood test came back that I was cured, I swear I saw a tear in his eye when he gave me the results. It was a miracle and Dr Abrams and his staff were there with me through every step of it. I have recommended him to several people since then. He is caring, kind, and explains the details in layman terms. He then got me started on a regiment of probiotics & fiber which I adhere to still today.
