She did not listen, was not familiar with my diagnosis, and had terrible bedside manner. Dr. Abramowitz entered the room (an hour after my appointment) and did not say hello. She coldy asked my name, and I introduced myself by my first name. Her response was- “state your FULL name”. I asked her to explain my diagnosis and it was quickly clear she knew very little about it. And she was rude. She also had a dirty lab coat and chipped nail polish. Disappointing for Weil cornell which is top notch.

Her beside manner is very poor. She yawned through our entire meeting, was impatient and interrupted whenever I asked questions or expressed my concerns. I chalked it up to afternoon fatigue (we met around 2pm). Terrible listener. Still hoping that she was proficient I followed through with an appointment. Big mistake. She told me exactly what I already knew, what I had told her. For that info I had to have the nurse call her. I still don't know why I'm having a problem. She was useless.

She is cold and does not look directly at you when asking questions. My entire visit she typed on her computer. It takes forever to get test results from her and she is quite unprofessional. Find another doctor! She does not care about her patients.

When I told the doctor that I was throwing up a lot and coughing she made me go to a pulmonary doctor to make sure I was OK to have the procedures that she was going to do which is it colonoscopy and Endoscopy what she would do the procedure because she was worried about me is very compassionate and didn’t rush me and I got to spend a good amount of time with her.

This environment in this office is terrible - everyone from the front desk to the nurse to the doctor is so rude. She took offense when I told her I wanted to stay off Humara and walked out the room without saying bye. She spoke to me like i’m stupid bc I have Crohnes and was treating it holistically. Every time I called the office it took over a week to get back to me. So stressful. She walks around with a clipboard with 100+ pieces of crumbly paper that had me suspicious from the start.

I thought Dr. Abramowitz was excellent. I went to her for a colonoscopy. She was very thorough with telling about the procedure an suggested she also do an upper GI since I have GERD. She had a great sense of humor. I feel completely confident with her skills.

Terrible bedside manner. Unfriendly, ill informed. Spent less than three minutes “examining” me (basically being paid hundreds of dollars to listen to my heartbeat and press abdomen). No compassion-did not listen actively-more interested in putting information into computer than interacting on a human level

Lacking compassion and no “bedside manner”. Seemed rushed and uninterested
