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.
