Dr Abshire is an engineer who decided to become a doctor, so you know he is just technically whip-smart. I was amazed that things I mentioned in passing showed up on my chart. That's just how attentive he is . . . . .and by the second visit, I realized how very human and caring he is too. The entire staff at Mercy Medical Group is dedicated, friendly, and caring. I came here when UC Davis stopped honoring my health plan, but now I wouldn't go back!

Dr. Abshire is the best doctor I have ever had. He is always attentive to the needs and careful as to diagnose their health problems and conscientious about their medications and prescribes that which he knows will best alleviate or address their condition. I have been his patient for over 15 years and my late husband also considered him not only a good doctor but a friend. He is always kind and pleasant toward his patients. I would not want any other doctor! Sincerely, Linnie Robinso
