Dr. Abbey is going to be very honest and straight forward. He is always going to do what's best for the patient.
Smyrna, TN |
Would not recommend this doctor. Zero bedside manner. Spent less than 5 minutes with me. Did not want to hear my prior medical history or listen to my concerns. Although treatment plan was somewhat helpful felt like he did not want me as a patient or care about my medical concerns. Poor listener.
