Excellent experience! We got in very quickly for something that needed to be taken care of right away for my teenage son. Dr. Abrahamson was very friendly and professional and made my son feel at ease. I would definitely recommend Dr. Abrahamson!

Today was my first visit with Dr. Abrahamson, and definitely not my last. (I had some spots I was a little worried about, since my family has a history of skin cancer,) He was very professional, knowledgeable, and gave me more than enough time to ask questions. He was very thorough with his answers. He also made sure I went home with additional information and sites for any other questions that may pop up before my next visit.
