Unprofessional and always in a rush; office staff rude and indifferent to patient's needs. Never got back to me with test results. Always had to call and then would have to talk to his male nurse or a medical assistant. The routine is always to "schedule another appt" if I wanted to speak to "Doctor". Spent way too much money on test after test that resulted in "normal findings" and on appointments outside his office for further testing that did not result in diagnosing my symptoms.

I was so apprehensive about going to my first appointment to this doctor, as I haven't seen a Cardiologist in the four years since my heart attack. I can honestly say, I have never felt more comfortable with a doctor so quickly, what a sweetheart!

Dr. Abbott has been treating my father for over 5 years. He always provides a great insight to my fathers illness, and never beats around the bush. He is the only doctor my father will take seriously. My family has much respect for Dr. Abbott and his entire team.
