I was concerned about pain and the doctor suggested I go buy a TENS unit. I had to call the office and I found out the unit was covered by my insurance. The doctor did not care if I was in pain, he just said it would get better with the procedure but didn't offer anything until the procedure.

came in thinking I was going to get some kind of nerve block or something to ease the pain instead I get meloxicam which really is not helping me I think ibuprofen was helping more... this is physically more painful than any kidney stone I've ever had in my life and I've probably had over a hundred and still am not getting any help or relief from my pain.. very disappointed in that aspect was also looking to figure out how to get a CAT scan or MRI besides x-rays which come to find out has to do with insurance purposes.. dr. Abraham was nice just need more attentive care for patients when it comes to people that are in severe pain

This care provider relied on my medical history and didn't form his own opinion or diagnosis. A cpap was recommended however he did not have a copy of my sleep study. I was there because I heard a podcast he did about the Fibromyalgia Clinic. The Clinic was not mentioned to me. I was very disappointed with this provider.

Dr aBraham diagnosed me with facet joint syndrome. he wanted me to start taking paroxetine. I told him I had problems with ssri's in the past and did not want to take it. he gave me no other options for treatment (physical therapy) and told me if I change my mind about that drug to call and make an appointment. so my choice was to be in pain or take a drug that may cause serious side effects. I chose to be in pain.

Reviewed on Jul 5, 2019

Dr. Abraham make it easy to discuss my care openly and frankly. He explains things thoroughly, addresses my concerns, discusses options and makes sure we are on the same page concerning my care. All my questions are answered before our appointment ends, something very important to me. He is a keeper...

I had the strangest appointment with this Doctor. I left wondering, What just happened? I had a long wait time and then the visit was over very quickly. I was asked to get a blood test for my thyroid and have yet to get verbal results. I was told to decide what I want to do and given a letter stating the same. then let him know what I decide? weird! follow up in 6-8 weeks but I am not clear what I am following up for.
