I've only had really good experiences with Dr. Abrams. I had to switch from my PCP when he retired and find a new PCP. It was hard picking someone out from a computer picture and description. But I went with Dr. Abrams. She is always very prompt answering my emails. And has been helpful with my chronic pain issues. When she doesn't know what the problem is - she refers me to a specialist.

Uncaring and cruel. Not helpful and would not work with a specialist I was seeing for medication. She ignored his phone calls. The best decision I made was to find another primary care doctor. This woman should not be allowed to practice medicine.

Dr. Abrams was the on call doctor.I would never see her as a patient or recommend her. She was rude, abrasive and condescending. I called her after developing a rash while suffering with pneumonia and being on antibiotics. She expressed no care or concern, did not make any effort to educate or be helpful during a difficult situation. After hanging up with her I read three reviews that confirmed other patients felt that they were treated the same way. She should not be allowed on call ever.

I had a walk-in apt at my PCP's office, but saw his affiliate Dr. Abrams. She negligently misdiagnosed my condition. She completely missed clear symptoms of a common antidepressant and dismissed my concerns over the acute condition. Had I not figured out the mistake 30 hours later, the pharmacist thinks I could have had a seizure. I have called and messaged Dr. Abrams office but she will not apologize for her mistake and is making me consider switching practices. I don't trust her judgement.
