Excellent bedside manner, patient and efficient.
Went to Dr. Abram's for a trigger finger. Options were understandable with informed choices. Had two visits with injections in four fingers. Pain and catching is gone. Excellent care. Would highly recommend.

First visit, I'm impressed
He knew exactly what he was looking for; proceeded to test my hand, fingers, wrist, and elbow joint; reviewed the exams that led to this meeting; and described my options for repair. Dr. Abrams answered my questions about post-surgical down time for my hand and fingers so that I feel I completely understood where each option might entail.

Absolute 5 star review
Dr. Abrams & his staff are very kind, compassionate and throrogh. I was always given prompt and excellent treatment and never rushed. If there were questions inbetween appointments, even if Dr. Abrams or Brittany were out of the office, I was put in touch with the triage nurse on duty, who was able to help me right away. It has been my great pleasure to have been under their wonderful care and I am most grateful to such a quality health care group. My heartfelt thanks to all. Diane Salkewicz

Dr. Abrams is truly the finest physician I have ever experienced. His professionalism, expertise, honesty, and comfortable rapport with patients is exemplary. He has a calm confidence that put me instantly at ease. He asks questions and listens carefully. He explains what he sees succinctly. I have never been treated with such respect or caring. I hope, at least in future, that Dr. Abrams has time to teach future medical professionals!

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.

Dr. Abrams listened to my concerns and helped me make the best choice for my particular problems (with both hands). He went over all options carefully and thoroughly. The injection that he give me seems to have done the trick and I have not had any more problems with that particular hand. He also gave me enough information that I believe that I will be able to decrease the probability of the problems reoccurring for some time. I like the way he did not try to push me to have an operation or to take unnecessary medications. He was calm, friendly, and just seemed interested in making sure that I got the appropriate care. I would recommend him to anyone with hand/wrist problems.
