Dr Abram did not even have the decency to call me about my test results. After I had had them done six weeks later and numerous phone calls to them, someone finally left me a voice mail for me to call back Someone talked to me and said I had some saitica and he couldn’t do anything. My pain management doctor had seen the results and read me something totally different. He is a terrible doctor and I would NEVER recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Abram is prejudice against over weight people. I felt bullied and belittled. It’s been 4 weeks and I can’t get my X-ray results.

1st appointment was exceptional from staff to the Dr.. Dr. Abram was very knowledgeable and professional. He was courteous and listened to my concerns. Spent a considerable amount of time with me to explain my MRI and to discuss the problems I am having. HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. ABRAM.

With my two surgeries being performed by Dr Abram and Mackey, for the first time in over 40 years I can feel my feet and legs! Dr Abram can not imagine how happy I was when I step on an object after my recent Cervical spine surgery and said ouch! It hurt! In 2010 I stepped on a piece of plastic which lodged in my foot, as I began to see blood, I thought my female dog had come in heat! However; it was my foot!!! Awesome God given abilities!

Dr. Abram was wonderful. I herniated a disc, was in terrible pain and my leg was partially paralyzed. I needed surgery and there were no appointments for 2 weeks, so he actually arranged for the entire team to come in at the crack of dawn so he could perform my surgery and hopefully restore the use of my leg. If you want your back fixed he's your guy. If you want warm & fuzzy and sweet nothings he may not be your guy as he is very matter of fact, which didn't bother me at all.

Dr. Abram has done multiple procedures on me but only as a last resort. He is very conservative and does not jump to surgery or pain management. He really tries to work through all other options. I have recommended many friends to him. He has a short and concise bedside manner.

I do not recommend this doctor!!! when we went for a consultation believe me I left with tears in my eyes and really choked up. I could not sleep for days after the appointment. He does not make u feel comfortable at all and when we asked a question he very rudely said in a very rude tone ok let me repeat myself on top of all that slams his diagnosis and says we have two options and really only gives u one option and he is out!
