This continues to be the worst doctor I have ever encountered. Three times I have been forced to interact with her as she was covering for another doctor. Failed to test as appropriate, ordered unnecessary tests as too lazy to get them from source and refused care thereby causing me to seek treatment at a facility with high infection rate. Was on a pic line for months due to her lazy behavior. Surely there must be better doctors in Santa Fe.

Louise Able is the most incompetent doctor in Santa and she has once again brought it to our attention. She and her current staff are more than willing to spend your medicare dollars on unnecessary tests rather than to locate and review existing records. Then staff either acting for her or being directly told by her limit an existing prescription when patient is going out of the country. Obviously this doctor and her staff's listening skills are getting worse with age.

After 10 years of being her patient, I have been hugely disappointed with Dr. Abel's change of behavior lately. She has become curt in her answers and has a narrow perspective. She is not open to anything except pure Western medicine despite my success with supplements in reducing my own neuropathy. Recently, Dr. Abel called me at work with the results from my biopsy and totally shocked me with her report and expected prognosis, which turned out to be incorrect. Adios Dr. Abel. Sorry, Nancy.
