Old school, but wonderful doctor. Dr. Abroms is easy to talk to and will listen to your input. He has helped direct me through a maze of specialists and medications over the past 5 years. He has called me personally to relay test results and discuss options for treatment. I would be lost without him. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Abroms to others and wish there were more medical professionals like him.

Dr. Abroms has been my primary care physician for over 25 years and I think he is excellent at listening and making a good diagnosis. The few times I had an urgent need, they worked me in very quickly. The staff is excellent and the office is well run. I have never had a billing issue. Overall, I recommend Dr. Abroms very highly!

His mistake and lack of attention caused my father's unnecessary and untimely death. He is fine if you are well, but he does not focus enough on early disease indicators. Be careful and get a second opinion if something doesn't feel right.
