I have been seeing him ever since Dr. Houk left. He takes his time, he answers questions and like one reviewer he called me in response to an email I sent. I have confidence in him and I trust him.

Exceptional doctor. I have seen lots of doctors to try to get answers about my chronic pain. He was not the first one to diagnose fibromyalgia but he was the first to be completely honest about it. He told me that medications were not very helpful and that I should be putting more emphasis on my sleep. I really appreciated him being upfront with me instead of just prescribing another useless medication. At least now I know where I stand. I highly recommend Dr. Abraham.

Dr. Abraham has been my doctor for several years and he has always taken good care of me. He never seems in a rush and always asks about my family. I'm doing great with my arthritis. I recommend him to anyone who needs a good, caring arthritis doctor.

I was very impressed with Dr. Abraham. He took time to listen to all of my problems and did a complete exam. He then explained what he thought was going on in language I could understand. I would definitely recommend him.

My experience was not a positive one. It took almost 6 months to get an appt. and it was a total waste of my time. I don't think he had even reviewed my chart. He took a reasonable amount of time with me but I left feeling confused and foolish. He made me feel as if I was stupid and my previous Rheumatologist were too. I wish there was more space to explain. He is very narrow minded and needs to improve his bedside manner. He focuses on fibromyalgia and offers NO tx plan. Don't waste your time

He "diagnosed" me with fibromyalgia but when I asked for FMLA paperwork to be filled out he said he could not categorically say I had it. So either he lied to get the insurance money or he knows nothing about fibromyalgia.

My mom uses this doctor. I feel he rushes her in and out of the clinic and doesn't really act like he has time to answer her questions. She won't change doctors because she says she has used him so long and he has all her records. I do not recommend this doctor to others.

It took six months to see him and it was a waste of my time. He specializes in fibromyalgia but does not prescribe medicine for this condition. I was very disappointed. I could have spend my time with another doctor. He needs to tell patience before they have to wait six months to see him that people with fibromyalgia need not to make an appointment with him.

I have been going to Dr. Abraham for about 20 years now and he has taken care of my arthritis very well. Most of the time I don't even know I have it. He's easy to talk to and always takes time with me. If you need a joint doctor he's your man!

Dr. Abraham has been so kind and understanding. I was a terrible mess when I started seeing him a few years ago and I have been able to turn my life around. I am finally back at work and my arthritis is very manageable. He always takes time with me and never seems in a rush. I would highly recommend him!

He spends a fairly consistent amount of time with you, but at the end made me feel foolish for coming. Have been in chronic unbelievable pain from swelling joints, headaches, difficulty sleeping, failure to heal. I thought I was going crazy because I couldn't get well. He diagnosed me with fibromyalgia but told me there is no medication to help my symptoms and basically suck it up and learn how to manage stress to combat flares. It's a waste of time if you seek traditional therapy.

He spent so much time with me and did a thorough physical exam. He explained my diagnosis in plain language that I could understand. I am feeling so much better now! I really like his staff also.

Great physician who listens to the patient, provides his valuable insight, and then makes sure you understand what he is trying to relay. Extremely intelligent and kind. He takes his time with every patient and you do not feel rushed in his office.
