in Madisonville, KY |
We travel from a small town in Western Kentucky to see Dr. Abel. I use the term ”we” because she not only provides care for me, she provides care to my family as a whole. I am retired from the healthcare profession and have worked with a multitude of outstanding physicians across the East Cost and Mid-West, I honestly say she is by far the most outstanding, as a clinician and as my personal physician. Our family made a joint decision to follow with Dr. Abel wherever she chose to practice.

Doctor able has to be one of the worst doctors in Tennessee , after 3 visits I'm in worse pain and had to see a nother specialist to get taken care of but can't fix what Dr able screwed up. . I wouldn't take my dog to Dr able

Scheduling was easy & amazing; it wouldn't be 2 mo. bef the doctor saw me ! I truly appreciate her patience & consideration of my problems. I was getting very depressed abt my multiple health issues & she, I think, saw the panic & frustration in my face. She listened, took time & wasn't rushing as most physicians do. My only negative: I heard staff fussing abt someone's promotion. Very minor thing. Thank you Dr. Abel for easing my concerns & my husband's too:) Would recommend definitely.

Dr. Abel is by far THE best doctor I've ever been to. She immediately put me at ease, and made a diagnosis of a condition that has plagued me since childhood. I can't say enough good things about her. She treats each patient like a dear friend, I can't recommend her enough! Thank God I found her, she's an angel, and a genius!

One of the best doctors I have ever encountered. Takes time to discuss issues and actually listens to what is going on before making a decision.
in Gallatin, TN |
Dr Able saved my life. I went in with a bladder infection I thought. She immediately diagnosed me and sent me to a surgeon. She did not discuss what she suspected but she knew I had liver cancer. She is an amazing Physician. I highly recommend her. She is professional, brilliant, personal, the most astute Urologist I have ever known. She has a sixth sense. An amazing Physician. Yes, I highly recommend her.
