I've been a long time patient of Dr. Abshire. He has been my lifesaver. I had fallen very ill and I appreciate a Doctor that can admit not sure what's going on. When Dr Abshire isn't sure it motivates him to do everything in his power to get to the bottom of it. Thanks to him being so professional I was diagnosed with Colon Cancer. We had no family history of any type of cancer. Thanks to Dr.Abshire I'm an 18 year colon cancer survivor. Thank You Dr.Abshire n Staff!

Had a colonoscopy done years ago. The anesthesia wore off. Told him I could feel everything continue with the procedure. Never did he apologize. With the nurse and the anesthesiologist , and they said nothing.
