Dr. Abel has treated both of my daughters but we have really seen how wonderful and available he is with my youngest who was diagnosed with Perthes . ANY TiME I have had a question or concern, he personally has answered my questions and has done so very promptly. He is extremely knowledgable but not cocky. He listens to what we need for her. I wouldn't want anyone else treating my daughter. I thank God for setting up the steps that led us to dr. Abel. I really can't say enough good things .
