I would, and have recommended Dr. Abbott. He's easy to talk to, he listens to you and to any concerns you may have. He's very thorough in looking at the entire picture before changing meds, etc.

I've been seeing Dr. Abbott for several years. My first visit with him, he diagnosed me with fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. He immediately started treating me and has continued being a very thorough and concerned doctor. He is a very busy doctor but he takes time to listen and is very kind.

Dr. Abbott acted like I was lying about my condition. On the list of conditions he treats is fibromyalgia (I have several other conditions on the list also) he told me there was really nothing he could do to help me, that I would just be better off going to a pain clinic! I was outraged! I had spent all that time waiting to see him, not to mention money (travel, husband day off work etc.) His office was very busy that day and he was getting ready to go on vacation, I guess he didn't have time!
