Wish I'd found Dr.Abrams a long time ago! – Mar 13, 2021
Posting for friends (snow birds) who saw the doctor last week & were told if they didn't receive a call from referal he said he would get them by Thursday (yesterday) to call him & any problems call him. There have been a list of complications. The doctor told them she has temporal arterus which has cost her 85+%of her vision in both eyes.. And after doctor told them to call with any issues, the staff this morning told him they couldn't help & transfered him to office where he was today, Who told him there was no point in telling her complications his wife is having, Suggested they make a appointment weeks out?? As he is watching his wife's right arm turn white after being numb since she woke b4dawn?????? I know they were happy after seeing dr,Dr, no follow up & his phone staff needs to be fired A.S.A.P.!!! THESE PEOPLE HAVE GOOD INSURANCE AND MONEY!! I HOPE DOCTOR GETS WORD OF THIS REVIEW!! HE Really needs to know how rude his people are treating his well off & critical patients..

The worst! Terrible! Useless! Complete waste of time! Wish we could give him a minus five stars! He couldn't have cared less or done less. Can't believe he's a doctor!

Dr. Abrams was extremely courteous and professional. He is by far the best eye doctor I have seen in years. His large staff was also very courteous.
