"Dr." John Abrahams is a fast talking, arrogant and poor excuse of a doctor, as well an embarrassment to his field. my father had the unfortunate circumstance of being in his "care." He talked down to my father as well myself and my mother. Most of the time we had to brief my father on the procedure because he had to rush to golf game couldn't be bothered to inform his patient. DO NOT USE JOHNNY BOY IF YOU VALUE YOUR LOVED ONES HEALTH.

On 10/27/16 I had emergency surgery on my spine for a herniated L4/L5 ,S1 hitting the nerve root. I want to thank my amazing Neurosurgeon -Dr. John Abrahams and his team for giving me my life back! It's amazing that 3 days later I'm able to enjoy my dads 70th birthday party pain free. When after 7 weeks I could barely walk with the most unbearable pain I have ever felt.My thanks to your entire staff at NWH for making my hospital stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible. Truly the Best!

I recently underwent Spinal Fusion of my L4 to L5. Dr. Abrahams and his team were not only professional from the initial consult through post op treatment, they made you feel like you were their most important patient. Though recovery is painful it was not as painful as I have heard other people say it was and I believe that it was due to his expertise. I highly recommend Dr. Abrahams to anyone who is in need of his service.
