Both my wife and I are his patients and have found him to be excellent (medical knowledge, manner, timeliness and frankly, fun to work with also). He truly cares about his patients and speaks in an easy-to-understand way - no small achievement in a medical area full of "foreign" references most people know little about. We both came away with the belief that he was in the business for our well-being and not for his wallet or precious & valuable time. We do not hesitate in recommending Dr. Abide to others.

I did not have to wait long. The intake nurse was very professional (kind, patient, and helpful). Dr. Abide seemed genuinely interested in my case. He took his time and listened carefully to me, and he took my concerns seriously. I will definitely continue to see him.

I first visited with Meagan, PA, who is friendly and thorough. After she talked with me for a while, Dr. Abide entered. He always listens to me and never talks down to me. He is friendly and concerned for my well being. He suggested a treatment option for my complaint and told me to contact him if I did not improve soon. I feel that I can contact him or his staff if I have a question and that question will be answered.

I moved to San Marcos and felt I needed a cardiologist closer than Bryan/College Station. My cardiologist in the past had been my doctor for over 10 years so I really didn’t want to change but knew I needed one closer. A friend recommended Dr. Abide so I chose him. He was amazing. I was very nervous going to someone new but immediately he relieved my anxiety. I highly recommend Dr. Abide.
