If I could leave Dr. Absher zero stars I would. He twice treated me during hospitilization and both times failed to even TRY to diagnose me. Because my symptoms were tricky, he decided it must all be in my head. I would not let my dog be treated by this smug arrogant doctor. He cares nothing for his patients.

Bad bedside manners, cocky and just unprofessional. His partner is just as bad. Also talks bad about other patients.

Personally connects with his patients and their specific problems on a professional level. Is genuinely concerned for their overall wellbeing. Searches for the underlying cause of the problem and doesn't try to mask it like so many others,I had been ignored by other Specialists as someone they couldn't help for chronic, complicated migraines,after having two non-aggressive brain hemorrhages and seeing Dr. Absure, he saw me for the migraines and we have had success in controlling them. Dedicated

Dr. Absher refused care due to my injuries being the result of a car accident where another driver was at fault. We do not accept patients injured in car accidents. I was referred by my primary care physician. Dr. Absher is in it for easy money and does not care about his patients. Do yourself a favor and stay away.
