Dr. Abadier has been our Cardiologist for many years, and my husband and I wouldn't go to anyone but him. He explains clearly so we understand what medications are to do, and suggests what we should do to be healthier, is both professional, courteous and very pleasant. Has a great staff that is always helpful and easy to work with for appointments, etc. We appreciate the care we are afforded by Dr. Abadier, and his staff.

OMG this is the best of the best in Citrus County, the staff the Doctor the whole visit from start to finish was great. Dr. Abadier was very understanding about my situation and listened to me, at the end of the visit we had a plan to get me back on my feet. Thank you

. I don't know if Shands just has better equipment or more sense. But Dr abadier did an ultrasound and doppler to my heart. He came in and said I had pulmonary hypertension and it was a horrible, horrible, dx. I went to a PAH specialist at Shands, prepared for a horrible horrible diagnosis.. Everything I read said at the arterial pressure he said. I was dying. Shands did a right sided heart cath and found it was a complete misdiagnosis. He was a nice guy, but time to stick to spider veins.
This unknown patient had an echo as a screening test, he/she, was appropriately sent for definative diganosis for the problem which is right heart catherization. This patient posted a negative healthgrade scoring without contacting me for clarification of his/her situation. I have been very humbled in my career as to how difficult medicine is. I would love to learn from my mistakes. Please contact me.

Seems like a nice guy (talked for five minutes after a heart attack in the hospital) but if you don't mind being charged up front and then be billed for more than Insurance pays,then this is your Doctor. His nurse practitioner is cool but why should I pay for a Doctor when I never see one? Then be sent a bill for the first time (after I already used my credit card to pay for up front) showing 30-60 day delinquent. Really??? Bye Abadier
Dear Mr. Austin this is the standard billing in every office, we do collect the copays etc upfront. I am clearly aware that you had one insurance ( Florida Blue only/no secondary) at the time of your stress test and I am confident there was a deductible, I will be looking into your account in detail to see if something may have been missed, please give me a chance to look at all the details before posting a negative comment. I reviewed your new patient packet and it states only one insurance.
Dr. Abadier is patient focused and asks questions that are targeted and look toward wellness and the whole individual. His office is neat and clean, although somewhat worn. The staff, particularly the medical assistant, is caring and congenial.
