What People Say About Dr. Stephen Abramson, MD
Reply
I was very disappointed with the level of care received in my opinion by this doctor on my initial two appointments with him. I disagree highly with his diagnosis in reference to some circulatory issues in my legs and found his performance cursory at best. I would definitely not recommend him.
