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.

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!

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.
