Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I am writing this for my 88 year old Mother who is suffering with eye condition due to Bell’s palsy SEE BELOW. This is my fourth visit today and nothing has been done about my eye condition. He wants me to make another appointment for 4 to 5 weeks. Waited one hour and 20 minutes today to see him. He stood outside the door while I was waiting while he made cracks and jokes with all of the staff for at least five minutes. Rude staff as well. What a waste of all my time for NOTHING.

Miracle Worker
Referred by our ophthalmologist for surgery. A growth needed to be removed & I needed a lift at the same time. Surgery was 100% successful & my eyes are completely symmetrical, better than my god-given shape. No sign of surgery such as discoloration, stitch marks or scares. He completed the surgery in my wheelchair because I could not transfer & completed it in minutes without assistance. He was able to do a surgery my well-known doctor was afraid to do.

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.
