Patient Comments (2)
North Tazewell, VA |
Dr. Mark Abel is wonderful. He is always there to help the children to be independent and make their life better, by looking at the children's physical health and well being. He is kind and considerate of the children's feeling. He allows them to be apart of their own treatment. He explains in depth what he is going to do to help the children. My daughter saw Dr. Able from the age 2-21, and told us that if my daughter needed anything just give him a call.

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 .
