How could I have been so Lucky to have Dr. Abrams.
Just Wonderful, I was able to get an appointment in 10 days. The doctor was recommended to me by a couple of Ladies that couldn't say enough good things about him. My first opinion of Dr. Abrams was he is friendly and just a really a nice person. He explained, by showing me my spinal problems on my X-rays and a lower spine skeleton exactly what was causing my pain and what he would do to fix it. Since then I have had the surgery and can't thank the Doctor enough for taking me in as a patient and doing a mighty fine job repairing my back problem. I might add that I am still waiting for and appointment with another DR. that was recommended to me back in July. And was told not to call them they would call me. :( MY good luck angel must have been watching over me when those Ladies told me about Dr. Abrams :)

First visit with Dr. Abrams. Staff was friendly and professional. Dr. Abrams and his PA took their time and seemed to evaluate what was going on with my back pain. They both asked questions and gave answers that made sense to me. I left their office feeling that I was in good hands. I am looking forward to my next visit and was finally prescribed medication that is helping relieve my pain and help me function until my test results are evaluated.

Dr. Abrams is the best
I love Dr. Abrams. He was honest and so very kind. Another doctor told me I would have to have surgery or I would lose the use of my arms. Dr Abrams said surgery was not needed now because my pain level was very low and I was doing well. Highly recommend him! If my pain increases or I need a neurosurgeon then he is definately the one I will run to.

Fantastic Result
A friend that had a great result recommended him to me. My surgery was on 7/17 and just had my 2nd F/U visit. Prior to the surgery I was in constant level 8 pain. Now I’m mostly pain free except when I do something stupid and overdo it, and then an Advil takes care of it. I’m amazed, and I highly recommend Dr. Joshua Abrams.

Extremely Pleased with Results
Came to DISC to see Dr. Abrams for a second opinion on my options to get rid of the pain in my lower back and right leg. I have visited a couple of doctors in Houston Texas where we live but I was not impressed or confident in what they were telling me. Called DISC, made an appointment, and flew to Phoenix to meet with the doctors here face to face. I feel so much more comfortable after talking with Dr. ABRAMS and having a full understanding of what is causing my pain and my discomfort. Next up we will be having a minimum evasive procedure done by Dr. Abrams here in Phoenix in the near future. We update after I have the procedure.

Wonderful Experience
Having dealt with lower back pain for most of my life two years ago I started hip pain which went into significant hip pain. For two years no one diagnosed the pain as hip, the hip doctors said I was fine and finally one 2 years later said see a back doctor. That doctor was Dr. Abrams and he diagnosed the hip pain as back generated and the surgery he did eliminated that pain. All I can say is "thank you"

Dr Abrams performed multilevel cervical spine fusion on me 3 months ago. I am so happy with the outcome that I cannot even believe it. Scary stuff certainly but the quality of my life had been taken away from me and Dr Abrams has given it back. Thank you!
