I am a 71-year-old man who was addicted to valium for 16 years. I used the drug specifically for sleep when, due to work- related trauma, found myself unable to sleep for more than three hours a night. My PCP was quite sympathetic to my plight and kept me supplied for many years offering heavier dosages along the way. Despite that, I was still not sleeping and was forced to retire early. Finally, I’d had enough and Dr. Abramson entered the picture. I had heard that he dealt in addiction medicine and arranged to meet with him. He developed a system whereby my taper would be slow And methodical by compensating my drop in valium with non-benzo meds to ease the side effects. Concomitant with that I’d be seeing their therapist who would be on hand to show me various coping strategies to ease anxiety. The entire process is still ongoing- although after 11 months I am valium free!!! He and his PA Justin are truly compassionate, knowledgeable people. I owe them everything.

Honestly, the best physician I have ever come across. His knowledge, demeanor, bedside manner and overall approach to the practice of medicine and patient care is unparalleled. Dr. A takes his time with each patient and ensures that when they leave, they leave satisfied. Dr. A is big on patient education and helping each patient understand their condition and treatment. I would recommend Dr. Abramson to any friend or family member of mine. He practices medicine the way it out to be practiced!
