Dr. Abrams took great care of me for ten years until she moved further west. Now that she is closer to me I’m having my records transferred to her. In my opinion, she is the best.

I was referred to Dr. Abrams by an LCSW because I needed meds after slipping into a major depression. I was very put off by her attitude and communication style considering her client base. She almost insisted that I make all appts online which either didn't work well on the website or couldn't accommodate my schedule. She also claimed to specialize in mental health though she has little to no formal training in mental health and doesn't understand it well enough. I went back to my PCP for meds.

I wish that I could give her a zero. I was referred to this so called "doctor" and humanitarian through my family doctor as I have suffered from. ADHD for my entire life. In addition, I am a recovering addict from opiates and never had an addiction issues for with ADHD medicine for 10+ years. This is a tough situation and Ms. Abram was as incompassionate and unprofessional as I could imagine. I only told her this basic summary and she refused to see me. Do not use. Unprofessional and rude
I was sorry to read this review. This patient's perception is completely different from mine. I did not refuse to see him. I told him that I would unlikely prescribe stimulants because of his history of addiction to opiates and could offer him other options including strattera or wellbutrin. It is never a good idea to blindly give addictive medication to someone with a history of addiction . I practice thoughtful medicine and had his best interest at heart. I wish him well.
