      Dr. Able is fantastic. It's a shame he has such a poor excuse for office staff. When my battery went dead it took his staff 3 months to get back with me to send the programmer to confirm it was dead. I now need the settings adjusted and have been trying to make contact for 2 months. I understand people are busy and I am not the only patient they have but let's get real 2 months is unacceptable and I truly hope one day they get as sick as me and get the exact treatment they have given to me SLOW!

      Dr Abell has cared for me since 1999, his sole job is to make my GI Dymotility as comfortable and workable as possible. Such as the GI Pacer. I was very blessed to have started with him the year I became sick and I know many have had to struggle before finding the right doctor for him. He is a kind, understanding person and truly cares about his patients. His passion for his work has shown in the # of patients that he has helped. I will always go where he goes in order to get the best care.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
