I was Dr. Abbott’s patient for years, seeing her due to thyroid nodules which she was observing through ultrasounds and FNA’s. She was just ok, not the warm and caring type of doctor most people like. Three things made me switch to another Endo though. First, she wanted to send me to a surgeon even though my thyroid was functional and the nodules benign according to her. She said “you must be tired of FNA’s”, but to me I felt like she wanted to profit by referring me to a surgeon - you don’t remove a functional normal sized asymptomatic thyroid! Second, I was diagnosed with an adrenal nodule and I needed her to test it. She didn’t care about it and completely ignored me. Now, 4 years later, I’m still trying to get my records sent to my new doctor and they haven’t done it yet. Her staff is awful and the third reason why I left. The billing fellow is rude and so are her office attendants. They mirror Dr. Abbott on their poor people skills. Worst clinic I’ve been to, no joke.

I have been her patient for over a year now and have never seen the "cold" behavior others mentioned in earlier reviews. She is always gracious and kind to me. I had to have a thyroid biopsy done near the holidays last year and she actually face timed me with my results while I was out of town for Christmas. She didn't leave me hanging and worrying over the holidays. She's a fantastic doctor!

I credit Dr. Abbot with regulating my thyroid and pituitary tumor to a point where I was able to have two healthy children. She is very in tune to my symptoms and needs and makes very precise adjustments with my medication. I recommend Dr. Abbot to any one suffering from thyroid issues. The support staff is always very nice and responsive. Some of the medical assistants have been there since I was referred. I think that speaks volumes about how the office is managed and how well the staff and patients are treated.

I have been Dr. Abbott’s patient for 20 years. She is very skilled and thorough. Her care led to removal of my thyroid in very early stages of thyroid cancer. She has prescribed the correct dosage of thyroid hormone to keep me cancer-free, active, and feeling healthy. I value the depth of her knowledge and her continuing diligence for my well-being.

In my opinion, Dr. Abbott is a talented physician. She can be a bit persnickety, but then, I can be rather careless, so it's a good combination from my point of view. Her office was not accepting my insurance for a while, but rather than seek out a less competent physician, I paid the full amount. I thought--and still think--it was worth it.

I'm a new patient there and mind you i have been driving 5 hours to see her and only seen Dr. Abbott once since my visits. I've been struggling with thyroid for years now so i know what going on but with having a goiter and she takes a sample of it to make sure it's not CANCER and you have been waiting to find out wants going on for a month and let me remind you she told me ill have a call within a week and its been a month! They are the worst, I have called every week and no answer ever!

I had been going to Lisa Abbott for about 2 years. For about 6 months she was great, however as time wore on I started seeing less and less of Lisa and was pawned off on other doctors. This affected my health greatly, because I was getting different doses of medication each time. When my thyroid levels started reacting to the constant change I had to start coming in every 2 months. This was extremely costly. Now in an effort to settle any final bills it is impossible to actually speak to someone

Tried really hard to put aside the cold/no-nonsense approach she has. Honestly, she just doesn't seem to care one way or another about her patients. She knew literally nothing about my endocrinology disease when I arrived and still nothing when I left (no exaggeration) - wasn't even willing to learn. Doesn't like to be asked questions or questioned in any way even when I tried SUPER hard to be kind about it. I would strongly not recommend - searching for another specialist.

She is the worst endocrinologist in Reno. Trust me I can go on n on don't trust her, she has no empathy for her patients. I've lived a n Reno all my life n had clients that had her as they're dr and ultimately all have left. I'm a very loyal person n will decide for my self although warned by so many. Fianl straw, she lied about test result for gain for her own not to deal with hyperthyroidism to make me get another I131 radioactive treatment that caused all kinds of complications . DONT TRUST

I was a patient of Dr. Abbott for a few years. Always trying to give the doctor the benefit of doubt. Having a Thyroid condition I really knew nothing about, figuring she, as my doctor would, educate me and ease my mind about what was going on with my body. Her education was minimal, cold and heartless to say the least. I did a lot of research, internet and reading books on my own. Most visits leaving me frustrated and confused. I'm a number, not a human being with a serious condition.
