in Scottsdale, AZ |
I had surgery on Aug 2017, for a spine, and back problem, my doctor was Dr. Abrams. There are few doctors who can equal him in knowledge, care, expertise, professionalism, etc. I really like the guy, and would highly recommend him...BUT he is associated with the Core....... I really would like to say my experience was great, and now I'm healthy......WRONG I am far worse today after the surgery, and am in more pain then ever before. Thanks to the Core

Dr. Abrams was very kind and patient with my questions. He ended up doing a minimally invasive surgery and I feel a million times better!! I would highly, highly recommend this caring professional.

Dr Abrams is one who knows his patients and can speak to their physical conditions from memory; he doesn't ask the same questions with each visit, because he remembers the details about each patient. Very personable and extremely competent.

Can't Thank Dr Abrams enough! Always goes Above & Beyond! EXCELLENT Bedside manners! Highly Recommend & Always Refer! Thank You Dr Abrams for All You Do!!!
in Peoria, AZ |
From the first time I met Dr. Abrams I was blown away by him, and now years later I still recommend him to pretty much anyone I come in contact with. He is caring, professional, patient, and explains things in a way that can be understood. Dr. Abrams is aware of who his audience is and takes the time to explain your diagnosis, treatment options available, and any future . He is compassionate and an outstanding physician! Highly recommended. This review is well deserved, keep up the good work!
in Surprise, AZ |
If I could give 1,000 stars I would. Dr. Abrams was the first of three doctors and two PA's at Core who actually LISTENED to what I was saying about symptoms and pain in my hip area. I had 3 doctors from Core look at the same X-rays and give me 3 different opinions. He was the only one who actually felt the area I was telling everyone I had pain in and although not his area of specialty he got me in to see the correct specialist almost immediately. . Thank you for believing me, Dr. Abrams.
