Wonderful Dr. He is very patient with you during your exams. He explains everything very clearly on the procedures he is doing and what the outcome will be. He helps you to understand things you may not have known about yourself. I would highly recommend him to anyone. His nurse is also very sweet and courteous.

Dr. Abell far exceited my expectations. I went in for my first pap smear and got so much more than that. He was absolutely wonderful. The most genuine and sincere doctor I have ever encountered. He actually saw me, for me, and talked with me about my struggles with depression and anxiety and really cared. Not only was he there to listen but gave me guidance as to how to get myself back. He cares about his patients as if they are family, and I truly felt that.

I consider Dr. Abell my primary doctor. He takes time to converse first followed by the exam with Dorie alongside. Finally, he discusses Any concerns I have about Any health issue. He is encouraging and a teaching doctor. He expects patients to take care of their health. He asked me questions about my health behaviors. He is an excellent physician with utmost professionalism! I always look forward to making my yearly appointment with him.

Dr. James Abell Jr. has always been professional and very informative about my gynecological exam and results. He takes the extra time it takes to make sure I understand everything about what he finds or doesn't find and tries to make sure I am doing everything between my exams to take the best care possible of myself. I could not ask for more!

Excellent doctor. Not only is he concerned with your gynecological health but with your overall health. He is very willing to discuss topics of concern and takes the time to help you understand risks and benefits of procedures and/or medications needed. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a doctor who listed to your concerns.

Dr. Abell is one of the best doctors. I have been with him for 20 years and he has treated me wonderfully. He is thorough, sensitive, understanding, and very knowledgeable. I use him only for gynecology. I came back to him after both of my babies. You will not find a better gynecologist in our area. And what makes the experience even better is that his practice no longer interferes with him having to deliver babies. Great one on one with a great assistant.

Dr. Abell has been my doctor for more than 30 years. He is and has always been very caring and willing to work with me on issues that were not routine or normal. He always makes me feel comfortable and at ease. He has always lessened the worry and stress while waiting on test results. I highly recommend him to those looking for a new doctor.
