Dr. Abbott's Experience

Research training, expertise and qualifications

Care Philosophy

I believe in taking the time to educate my patients about their disease entity and surgery as fully as possible. I always try to reserve surgery as the last resort but when surgery is indicated I will bring my more than three decades of experience to achieve the best surgical results. I believe in personal responsibility for all the aspects of surgery and postoperative care and not delegating that responsibility to others.
