Dr. Abernethy is kind, compassionate and very knowledgeable in her field. I have every confidence that my eye health is in good hands.

Dr. Abernethy is very caring and extremely detail oriented. She works quickly and prepares excellent records of her findings. Her surgery has definitely improved my vision with no pain or adverse reactions. She impressed my wife and me so much that when my wife needed help, she left her previous provider and saw Dr. Abernethy. We discovered the previous provider had issued an incorrect glass prescription. Dr. Abernethy's exam discovered two problems creating problems. Now treating both!

Dr. Abernethy and the staff at Nethery Eye Associates were more than comforting and helpful. The front desk was welcoming, the technician was caring and gentle, and Dr. Abernethy was kind and thorough. I was in great hands at Nethery Eye Associates and I am certain you will be too. I recommend Dr. Abernethy to anyone in need of expert advice and care.

Dr. Abernethy is very gracious, kind, informative, thorough; takes time to answer all your questions and gives you complete answers. Every single one of her staff with whom I've been in contact over the last 4 years has also been very pleasant and accommodating.
