Dr. Abrams and his fabulous staff ALL worked together to put together what has been bothering me for too long. I now have a plan that is being executed and working out with the right tests. His manor and caring attitude and that of his staff are working with me to make me well. I know that I will have to have surgery and I trust him with my life. He healed my husband and I know that he can do the same for me.

Dr. Abrams was very thorough in his explanation of the surgical procedure he had prescribed. He even took the time to explain some items that were on a report from my primary care physician that I had questions about. His staff has always been friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others.

Dr. Abrams and his staff are wonderful. After having other doctors miss my diagnosis, he saw right away what was wrong with me and got me into emergency surgery. His team make you feel relaxed and work with you every step of the way. I'm still recovering, but I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon.

DISC is fast-pasted and very busy, but Dr. Abrams takes the time with each patient. I hve never waited longer than maybe 10 mins to get called back. The staff working around Dr. Abrams are personable and engaged with their patients. I always feel welcome and supported when I have to visit Dr. Abrams. He is an amazing doctor that treats his patients with care and compassion. He is not just a good doctor; he is an amazing human as well.

Care and Compassion – Jul 19, 2021
Both of my visits with Dr. Abrams have been terrific. He's so caring, and really wants his patients to understand what is happening with their recovery. I love that he brings out the skeleton and shows me why I have the pain where I do, and that he even reviews my x-rays so I can actually see the fracture and what progress it is making. I find myself talking over him at times because I'm so conditioned to doctor visits that are rushed that I think I need to hurry up and ask my questions. Not the case with Dr. Abrams...he will take the time to answer all of your questions. He truly cares about his patients and their well-being. His holistic approach to treating the "whole" patient is fantastic. So refreshing.

Jo Imbertson – Jul 09, 2021
Dr. Abrams is a very skilled surgeon. He performed a 4 level cervical discectomy and fusion with 4 plates, going through a small incision on my neck. The scar is not noticeable, pain was minimal, and the possible bad complications that I feared did not happen. I am so thankful for Dr. Abrams and highly recommend him. He is also very kind and patient.
