Dr. Abrams was very helpful and took his time with each visit. And once surgery was determined and discussed, he explained everything in detail and made sure all of my questions were answered. He did a CMC suspension sling arthroplasty with carpal tunnel release and I had relief from the pain very quickly. I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Abrams knew immediately what the issue was with my hand. His surgery completely fixed it & I now cannot tell that I ever had a problem with it. He takes the time to listen and you can tell he cares & wants to help a patient. I would highly recommend him.

It was a pleasure dealing with Dr. Abrams. The surgery was exactly what he explained to me that it would be. The nurses at the surgery facility were very helpful and accommodating. Unlike a lot of doctor appointments Dr. Abrams actually sees you in a timely fashion not leaving you waiting for hours. Overall it was an outstanding experience and my hand is healing as expected.
