Dr. Abramson came in and was so polite and professional right off the bat. He explained my problem and listened intently to what I had to say. He made sure that both my wife and I understood what was going on. When we returned for the second appointment, he was very interested in giving me all of my options. I like very much so far.

Following an automobile accident that caused injuries to my spine from the whiplash action of being hit from behind while sitting at a red light, I sought medical treatment for those injuries. I was finally seen by Dr. Abramson who reviewed my MRI and X-rays and following a physical examination determined that I needed to be referred to a pain management physician to receive proper treatment in a conservative manner. So far, the pain management approach has allowed me to return to a more pain free life with few restrictions. Dr. Abramson is a truly gifted spinal surgeon but prefers to whenever possible treat his patients in a conservative approach and I highly recommend him if you are troubled with spinal injuries or issues.

I found Dr. Abramson to be warm, engaging and patient while reviewing the test data I brought with me, seeking a second opinion. Left feeling like I should go to him for first opinions.

I have recently undergone a spinal fusion under the care of Dr. Abramson. I always feel that I am in good hands as his patient. My first encounter with him was 12 years ago when I fell and severely injured my neck. Within minutes of being referred to him I had an appointment to see him within the hour. Within 2 hours I was on my way to the hospital and admitted for surgery. Dr. A literally saved my life and my mobility. I am grateful that he is my physician.

I cannot recommend Dr. Abramson highly enough. His knowledge and skill in diagnosing and performing surgery is outstanding. He is a compassionate doctor, and he gives his patients all the office time they feel they need to completely understand their medical problem and to explain their options. I especially appreciated his not being quick to rush into surgery, but rather to recommend first more conservative approaches to managing my pain.

Dr abramson and his staff were very professional and explained in easy to understand language my condition and options. He is conservative in suggesting several options to help me decide the best path to improve my back pain.

I have only had one visit with Dr. Abramson so my opinions are limited to the 20 minutes or so that I spent with him for an initial visit. However, I was very impressed with the attention given to me and how the Doctor listened to my complaints with concern. He decided what should be done and I am awaiting the hospitals call for further instructions. So far I am very pleased with Dr, Abramson and his staff.

In 1999 Dr. Abramson ordered a myelogram. Radiolologist found a mass at T-6 & Dr. Abramson ordered more images test (MRI etc.) It was determined that I had a intramedullary spinal tumor. My only option was surgery. Surgery was scheduled and the tumor was removed after 9 hours of surgery. Dr Abramson, brought in a team of professionals to assist in this surgery and they successfully got the tumor out. I'm walking today because of this man! Sometimes we expect to much. I can walk and work. Thanks!
