Greenfield, IN |
Amazing surgeon. Very personal with his patients. The office really gives you a family feel.
Carmel, IN |
I had cataract surgeries with excellent results. Dr. Abrams has always been thorough and open to questions during exams.
in Indianapolis, IN |
Dr Abrams is the most thorough ophthalmologist I've seen since I started wearing glasses 60 years ago. He has experience. expertise and a very gentle demeanor with great bed side manner. Our family all attest to giving him the highest rating. Thank you, Dr Abrams, we appreciate all you excellent kindness & professionalism !
Indianapolis, IN |
My refraction was done by his assistant. He refused to verify the results stating I was seeing 20/20. Turns out, I needed trifocals and that was not detected by his assistant. He refused to reevaluate me. His partner did and still did not catch that I needed trifocals. If you have sensory processing problems and atypical visual difficulties, this is not an understanding office for those issues, imho. Billing fees ($30) are added for obtaining a pre-authorization for medications as well.

I couldn't have asked for better treatment! I had two cataract surgeries with no complications!
