Dr. Abram's and his staff are top notch! Have always been treated with extreme professionalism and courtesy. Did not feel pressured into surgery and when I started I would like to wait as long as possible, he was in agreement and did not try to talk me out of my choice.

I have gout the worst kind. It’s all over my body but you can see it more in my hands and feet. But for my visit there was because in my left hand on my pinky finger I have so much gout that it caused bad swelling. So he went in there and done surgery to relief some of the swelling and pressure. And it worked. Now I have a normal looking finger. Normal looking to me with someone with gout. He is a wonderful doctor. And if I ever need to go back to him I will. His staff and team are wonderful couldn’t ask for any better. Thank y’all so much...

Dr. Abrams performed Carpal Tunnel release surgery on both my hands. From the initial consultation to my release day, he was very easy to communicate with, had a great bedside manner, and listened and explained everything he was doing. I would recommend him as a surgeon to anyone that needed this done. Thank you Dr. Abrams for taking such great car of me!
