This was the biggest waste of time and money! Telehealth visit. She recommended medications that were very expensive, she said the pharmacist would work with me on an alternative if it was expensive. The pharmacist says he has to dispense as written. Tried to get them to call me and received no call. I was told by Abel the scheduler would call me to schedule a follow up, never called. Then out of the blue I get a text message that I have an appointment the next day! What a joke of an office! Never again and no I don’t recommend her!

The short version is this: Dr Abel's staff is unprofessional and rude with behavior that could put a patient at risk. I had read this in other reviews and wish I would've taken them into account before scheduling with Dr Abel. For the full version of the review, look at Google reviews, as it exceeds the character limit here.

I went to Dr. Abel for frequent UTI's. She was great, explained everything excellently and ordered tests, the last being a cystoscopy procedure. She was professional and personable. I got in and out of her office expediently. I will definitely continue to be her patient as needed.

Dr. Abel’s office fit me in quickly for a last minute appointment, and I appreciated that. Her nurse was also very personable and helpful. Unfortunately, Dr. Abel herself seemed very rushed. She did point me in the right direction as far as what tests needed to be done to confirm my condition, but I felt that she didn’t take adequate time to explain what to expect before she quickly hurried off to the next patient. Then, the office staff scheduled me for the wrong procedure, which I didn't discover until the day of. When I called Dr. Abel’s office, they didn’t even offer an apology, but only some half-hearted attempts at rescheduling. The worst part of it all was that after the test was completed, Dr. Abel never got back to me with the results, even though my husband and I called and left several messages. We had to pick up the procedure report ourselves and switch to another urologist. We were not impressed with the way Dr. Abel’s office operates, and will definitely not be back.

I’m a retired nurse and have living with a very common urological issue for years. My primary doctor sent me to her. She tested my bladder and explained the issues with my bladder very well and offered me several options to correct my issues giving me %’s of how much they are affective. I would recommend her to any of my friends and several have made appointments.

I am a retired RN so I am very picky about who my doctors are. Dr Abel was wonderful! She is very knowledgeable and friendly. She assessed my condition and discussed the recommended treatment and surgery. The surgery was performed exactly as she described. And the outcome was excellent! No complications and no complaints! I highly recommend her if you’re in need of a female urology expert!

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.

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!
