June 27, 2016

Highly recommend.

June 27, 2016

the only thing I didn't know was that when Dr Abraham recommended that I have surgery and gave me a referral to see Dr Hunt, I still would need Dr. Hunt's approval for the surgery.

Dr. Abraham is very skilled at performing oblations and I have full confidence in his abilities. I am grateful that he is able to perform this procedure on me.

In regards to question 7 it's not his fault i just have a difficult time understanding my condition and what the numbers on blood tests mean and so forth.

May 09, 2016

Dr. Abraham is very attentive to my questions and needs. I think he is a great asset to Huntsman

May 09, 2016

Dr. Abraham was very accomodating and was actually there to greet us when we entered the back area where blood pressure etc is done. He idn't rush us at all and answered all of our questions.

April 29, 2016

the doctor took time to review the ultra sound & show me the problem areas.

April 17, 2016

Dr Abraham was simply amazing!! he spent a lot of time with me, he listened to me, and answered all of my questions. I was truly beyond impressed and happy with Dr Abraham and his level of patient care.

April 11, 2016

Dr. Abraham is an excellent physican who has great listening skills, is a great communicator and connects on a personal level with his patients - that is so rare now days. he spends the time I need to feel comfortable with my diagnosis and treatment!!!!

April 10, 2016

Very knowledgeable and always makes me feel at ease

April 08, 2016

feel like i was not really being listened to regardless of what I tried to say.

April 06, 2016

He was very willing to listen to my concerns and answer my questions. He fully explained all of my options and helped me arrive at a decision about my care.

April 01, 2016

Dr. Abraham is very calm and friendly. I had a biopsy at this visit and it was totally painless.

March 14, 2016

Dr. Abraham made me feel comfortable, explained my issues with clarity and concern, showed genuine interest in me as a person and was more knowledgeable about my problem and aware of the current research in the field than any other physician involved in my care. He was friendly without sacrificing professionalism. His obvious confidence in his knowledge and his willingness to share it eased my anxieties. I came to the appointment with trepidation and left feeling joyous. I will highly recommend Dr. Abraham, without reservation, to anyone with thyroid or related issues. I am grateful to have Dr. Abraham involved in my care and plan to continue to sing his praises.

March 05, 2016

I was very impressed with Dr. Abraham, his training, his breadth of research, his understanding of my questions, and his ability to explain both the common practice and the alternatives based on his experience, knowledge and original research.

March 02, 2016

Dr. Abraham was excellent.

February 29, 2016

As much as I can be relaxed while waiting for my test results...I am completely confident in the way forward. Whatever that may prove to be.

February 26, 2016

Dr. Abraham is a highly educated professional with exceptional knowledge of thyroid cancer- its treatment and detection. On my first visit he was able to understand my history (2 inch thick medical records), select appropriate tests to identify my current condition and evaluate my situation. I have rarely been so fortunate to be a patient of such a high caliber physician. I highly recommend him.

February 23, 2016

Dr. Abraham is wonderful and is very caring. His reputation proceeds him also, I've had other people ask me how they can get an appointment to see him.

February 22, 2016

I wish Dr. Abraham would be treating my condition.. it is not his specialty however.

February 17, 2016

Dr. Abraham uses only TSH, T4 and T3 testing. I prefer more comprehensive testing of the thyroid using FT4, FT3, and RT3. I do not feel confident in Dr. Abraham's ability to treat my thyroid condition.

February 14, 2016

All of my physicians at University Clinics are exceptional. I feel I get leading edge medical knowledge, and top notch technology.

February 05, 2016

Dr Abraham was professional, compassionate, explanatory, informative, as perfect as a doctor as one can get. He was so through. He answered questions and took time for me during our appointment. When he called me back with test results he didn't have time for my questions, but reassured me Dr Buchmann would answer them. I have already referred 4 of my friends to Dr Abraham since seeing him. I feel so lucky to have him as my caretaker.

January 28, 2016

Dr Abraham was fantastic! He took the time to explain and helped us to feel comfortable and safe.

January 25, 2016

Dr Abraham was extremely patient and kind. My parents came with me to my appointment and they had lots to chat about and he was so kind in answering all of their questions and being patient. He was great!

January 23, 2016

Dr. Abraham was kind, pleasant, and very knowledgable. He was extremely thorough and patient concerning my other medical condition and the corns my other Doctor expressed. I feel completely confident in his expertise, and appreciate his demeanor.

January 16, 2016

didn t really spend much time discuss the issues with me about thyroid , maybe cause we didnt have much to go off of , very fast apt

January 11, 2016

We were very impressed that Dr. Abraham really cared about my total health and spent the time needed to address issues that could effect my life. He didn't want to do tests just to do them. I appreciated his care and concern and the information he gave us.

January 07, 2016

Best doctor(s) and office staff, based on my wide ranging experience of dealing with doctors & office staffs.

Great experience with Dr. Abraham. He was very nice and he explained everything as we were going about the procedure. Excellent bedside manner!

October 22, 2015

dr. Abraham is a cut above the rest. He listened and genuinely cared. He ordered the right tests. he is fantastic. I wish all doctors were as great as he is! A+ experience with him. The fellow on duty has a lot to learn still though. luckily Dr Abraham's professionalism made up for her lack of bedside manner.

October 19, 2015

I saw Dr. Abrahamson and had all the time in the world to discuss my case. All questions answered.

October 19, 2015

He's the reason Iam still here.

October 07, 2015

I am very grateful for the excellent and skillful care I have received from Dr. Abraham.

I continue to have great confidence in his knowledge and ability for continued care. His assistant has also been very thoughtful.

Dr. Abraham is very generous with his knowledge and support. I feel very fortunate to have his care.

September 21, 2015

I love Dr. Abraham and his assistant. They are pretty amazing!

September 21, 2015

The method of communicating through messages when you need treatment is very frustrating. I would expect that someone would actually call and discuss the test results.

September 19, 2015

Dr. Abraham is fun and professional. He knows me when I come in, he is patient and I would recommend everyone to go see him!

September 03, 2015

Dr. Abraham was amazing. He listened and was the most helpful doctor I've been to.

July 05, 2015

Dr. Abraham was very informative and focused on me and my problem!

June 16, 2015

Dr. Abraham has an amazing ability to remember past details about our 2 daughters' thyroid cancer history, as well as my thyroid nodules. We all are so confident in his ability to care for us. (I have always visited him at his Endocrinology Clinic. For this reason I marked that this was my first visit to Huntsman as his patient.)

June 15, 2015

outstanding

May 28, 2015

Dr. Abraham was very sincere in understanding the out of pocket expense and copay expense. He seemed as frustrated as I did with the insurance protocol. He spent quite a bit of time with me and didn't seem like he was in a hurry to get me out and move on to the next patient.

May 25, 2015

Dr. Abraham was outstanding. He seemed extremely knowledgeable about my thyroid condition, and he anticipated and answered my questions thoroughly. He was quick and skillful at the thyroid biopsy. He obviously cares about his patients, and he had an excellent bedside manner that put me and my husband at ease. All these great attributes and he was efficient, too! I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an endocrinologist.

May 24, 2015

Dr Dev Abraham is an excellent Dr and I am very comfortable with him, his experience, his explanation are always in terms I can understand and he provides the basis for his recomendation which is much appreciated!

Explained goiter condition in detail and his rationale for treatment protocol.

May 08, 2015

Dr. Abraham is just a very nice, caring physician. He takes his time and really explains everything in a way that I can understand.

April 28, 2015

It was a very positive experience.

April 22, 2015

Dr Abraham was amazing. I actually came in not expecting much help because my blood work did not show real obvious problems. Dr Abraham requested some tests to confirm his diagnosis and other tests I wanted to assuage my fears. He spent quite a bit of time with me and explained in very clear terms what he thought I needed and how i should proceed. He personally talked to my primary care provider (who called me and expressed how impressed she was with him) to discuss further care. I feel that this doctor really cares about his patients and does what we all hope our providers will do ... care about us, listen to what we say and treat with knowledge and compassion.

April 18, 2015

I was so impressed with Dr. Abraham! He took away all of my fears and concerns, explained everything at a level I could understand and took all the time I needed. I was surprised and delighted that he could do the ultrasound in his office, and that he personally performed the exam. I have no worries or concerns now that I know I have him on my healthcare team, and I have never had that feeling in the 3 years I have been dealing with my thyroid cancer and treatment.

April 13, 2015

Dr Abraham was exceptional - excellent listener - explained everything in great detail - very personable - very professional - best interaction with a Dr that I have ever experienced!!!

March 27, 2015

Dr. Abraham is one of my favorite physicians. He is kind and considerate and always makes me feel comfortable and well cared for.

March 24, 2015

I felt confident about Dr. Abraham's ability to help me. He took so much time listening to me, and then explained what he felt was my problem, assuring me that he would be able to help me manage my disease. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

March 17, 2015

Dr Abraham is one of the very few doctors I have consulted throughout the 25 years of my residence in the US, who actually demonstrates genuine concern for patient well being.

March 09, 2015

great experience always

March 08, 2015

I arrived at the clinic very concerned about my health issues. I have been worried about it for several weeks. Dr Abraham made me feel very comfortable and relax. He didn't use medical terminology and he spent time addressing my concerns. His best advise was "let the doctors worry about your health concerns..." was something I needed to hear. I am very grateful for listening my concerns! And please remind Dr. Abraham not to climb ladders unless somebody is holding the ladder.

March 07, 2015

Dr. Abraham impressed me as being both very experienced and competent, and also caring.

February 28, 2015

he's amazing!!

February 28, 2015

Dr. Abraham was very kind, courteous and thoughtful to me and my family. He quickly gained my confidence with his knowledge and ability to perform the necessary treatment and diagnosis of my symptoms.

Dr. Abraham is EXCELLENT, as you surely know. Liked EVERYTHING about him--his doctoring, his humanity!

February 17, 2015

Dr. Abraham is fantastic! He's very patient with me and thoroughly explains everything.

February 07, 2015

I appreciate his communication style and knowledge. I always I can make informed decisions in regards to my health because he is great and can communicate risk effectively. Highly recommend him to others. I can tell he cares about patients.

February 03, 2015

I appreciate the time Dr. Abraham spent with me, making certain I understood and answering all questions completely.

January 17, 2015

Doctor Abraham has a good sense of humor which makes me more comfortable. He carefully explained what my issue was, how it would be taken care of (by a surgeon) and what we were doing that day to prepare for it. He did a biopsy on a mass he'd found on the ultrasound, being careful to tell me he did not suspect cancer, but was testing it because IF it had to be removed we could do that at the same time as the parathyroid removal. I appreciated he did the ultrasound and biopsy that day instead of making me come back; it was better for my pocketbook and I didn't have to worry until a return visit could be made.

January 12, 2015

Dr. Abram whent beyond my expectations in educating me about many issues- even some beyond the exact problem I was seeing him for- for example, he gave me some information about weight gain and risks for diabetes, knowing my history, but I was being seen for thyroid issues.

January 10, 2015

Dr. Abraham is always friendly, very professional, and seems genuinely concerned about my health. He is thorough and I travel from St. George just to be seen by him instead of a specialist in my area.

January 07, 2015

I have seen other doctors about my thyroid nodule who have not been very communicative. Dr. Abraham was most understandable and thorough in his explanations to me of the reasons and threats of having thyroid nodules. I appreciated his willingness to explain things to me.

December 16, 2014

I absolutely LOVE Dr. Abraham. He is a kind, smart man. He cares and listens and I would recommend him to everyone!

December 11, 2014

time with the Dr. was very short so I can't really evaluate. I will return in 2 years as instructed.

November 25, 2014

Dr. Abaraham is much, much, much better than my previous doctor; Dr James Grua. I am thrilled to be able to have Dr. Abraham as my Endo doctor. I'm glad I made the switch to Huntsman and intend on seeing Dr. Abraham as long as I'm able even though I live in Saint George. What a difference he makes in my personal thoughts of how I'm cared for. I'm very satisfied with my experience with Dr. Abraham and his nurse assistant,Caroline.

November 22, 2014

Dr. Abraham is very caring, also explains everything so I can understand. I really enjoy having him for my doctor.

November 21, 2014

This doctor set my mind at ease, he went over what he wanted to do, such as lab, then what he wanted to do after lab results. plus he gave me the information to sign up fo my chart which I love and I can check lab results and the doctors notes on my visits.

November 14, 2014

Epic was down so we were not able to to order the tests I needed during the visit. Dr. A said he would mail me the order. I am hoping it will come soon.

November 13, 2014

Dr. Abraham was very nice to call me the next morning with my lab results. He felt that my symptoms are caused by medications I take. I have taken these meds for quite some time and know when my fatigue is caused by medication. I don't think he understood that I have been dealing with my thyroid issues for the last 5 years.

November 06, 2014

Dr. Abraham is absolutely wonderful.

November 06, 2014

dr Abraham was excellent! he answered my questions and helped me feel better about my concerns

October 15, 2014

Dr. Abraham has not prescribed medications for me. My follow-up care is to get a blood test (which I can do at another clinic) and to return in a year for further observation.

October 15, 2014

Have already recommended Dr. Abraham to a friend who has Thyroid cancer, she is currently being treated by him.

October 10, 2014

I am so impressed with Dr. Abraham and his care and time given to me.

September 29, 2014

Dr. Abraham has since my first visit with him, always been kind, informative, understanding and explained everything in a fashion which I am able to understand. He has always been positive and encouraging, even when I was terrified by my diagnosis.

September 19, 2014

Dr. Hunt has been GREAT to work with during this experience!

September 11, 2014

Dr. Abraham is a wonderful physician. The time he spent with me and information shared at this appointment answering questions regarding my condition status post surgery and next steps was very good. I trust him implicitly. Thanks so much for the care and time.

September 05, 2014

Dr. Abraham is awesome!

August 24, 2014

Dr Abraham was excellent. His description and explanations using the white board was very helpful. His explanation of the procedure was also excellent and put me at ease during the procedure.

August 24, 2014

Dr Abraham was excellent. It was great to get in to see him so quickly. He was very patient and thorough.

August 15, 2014

Dr. Abraham was very helpful, and explained everything very clearly.

August 13, 2014

Dr. Abraham was very patient and spent a good amount of time discussing treatment options.

August 12, 2014

Dr Dev Abraham is very rude and treated me as a parent as if my concerns about my daughters symptoms were of no concern

July 22, 2014

Dr. B uchmann, the Resident, and Dr. Abraham were great! My stress level went from a 20 to a 2 after I had met with them! I am 100% confident that I will have the best chance to survive my cancer bec these super smart and competent Doctors are at the helm. And, another biggie, they really care, for their compassion was evident throughout our visit. I feel very blessed that the Good Lord put them in charge of eradating this cancer from me!

July 21, 2014

extraordinarily good experience

July 17, 2014

Dr. Abraham was excellent!

July 09, 2014

I have been a patient since 2001 and have seen several different Drs. Dr Abraham is by far the best!

July 06, 2014

I really liked Dr. Abraham - he was very knowledgeable and was thorough. He asked me lots of questions and tried to determine things from all symptoms, not just the things that had to do with why I was there. He allowed me to help make decisions with his input and expertise.

June 30, 2014

Dr. Abraham was fantastic and I'd recommend him to everyone!

June 26, 2014

Dr. Abraham as usual was very kind, caring and efficient in our visit. He answered all my questions and gave me guidance as to how I should proceed with my medications, etc. I am very grateful for his expertise and knowledge as well as his concern for my problems.

June 21, 2014

Dr. Abraham and staff are excellent

June 13, 2014

The care provider was certainly skilled in his area of expertise, but in the end I still don't know what the problem is and what steps I should take to further a diagnosis. I am scheduled for a followup in 2 months but in the interim, I am attempting to find my own solutions.

June 06, 2014

Dr. Abraham is a wonderful practitioner. He's easy to talk with regarding my health concerns and explains things readily. I'm confident that he has my best interests in mind as he cares for me providing options and explanations to help me make the best informed decision.

June 05, 2014

I really wish he had read my chart before my appointment. After reading my chart herealized I was scheduled for the wrong procedure. I drove an hour to get there. If my chart had been looked at before hand I would not have wasted half my day and then still have to come back. And I am really not happy that more than likely I will be billed for wasting my time! My insurance is terrible so it will all come out of my pocket. On a positive note I was glad he did not do an unnecessary procedure.

June 04, 2014

the doctor was very thorough and explained my condition so I could understand.

May 24, 2014

Dr. Abraham is one of the nicest physicians I have ever encountered. He gave me a sense of peace and comfort that I sorely needed. Thank you for employing such professional, compassionate individuals. It was a pleasure meeting him and his staff.

May 22, 2014

good

May 06, 2014

Dr. Abraham was great. Very friendly and informative. He put me at ease and explained my condition in very easy to understand terms. I felt I was speaking with someone on my same level. Absolutely no "God Complex" detected as I have encountered in the past with some specialist. Again Dr. Abraham is absolutely terrific. I would recommend him to others without hesitation.

April 30, 2014

Dr. Abraham is wonderful!

April 26, 2014

Dr. Abraham's calm, assuring, friendly manner helped ease my slight anxiety. He assured me that Dr. Hunt would know what to do with my misbehaving parathyroid gland. Dr. Hunt had spoken highly of him, too. He showed me the results on the screen without scaring me about the severity of it.

April 21, 2014

Excellent

April 17, 2014

Great care

March 27, 2014

I had been having problems and Dr. Abraham found time to see me and help me with my needs. I really appreciated his doing so on such short notice. He is always kind, understanding and very helpful. I am most grateful to have him as a doctor.

March 27, 2014

March 25, 2014

Dr. Abraham is most competent and caring. I have known him for several years and always feel as though he has my best interests in mind and explores all options with me.

March 23, 2014

Dr Abraham was not in a big hurry, actually spent quite a long time visiting with me, trying to reassure me in the issues I thought I was having. He was very clear, friendly, funny!!

March 22, 2014

Dr. Abraham took great care in explaining to me my condition and a course of action.

March 07, 2014

Dr. Abraham is probably the best doctor I have ever seen. He is very down to earth and talks to you like a normal person. He explains things and makes it feel like the course of treatment is a team effort.

January 29, 2014

I have been seeing Dr. Abraham at his endocrinology office for several years. He has always been very competent, kind and caring and works hard to explain things to me so that I understand my options. I trust Dr. Abraham and will continue to consult with him on my parathyroid problems.

January 21, 2014

Excellent care and service from everyone. Thank you.

January 11, 2014

Dr. Abraham's "bedside manner" is excellent. I was nervous about the procedure, but he put me at ease and explained everything.

January 05, 2014

December 24, 2013

Dr. Abraham is one of the best doctors I have ever had.

December 02, 2013

November 25, 2013

Dr Abraham talked WITH me rather than TO me. His explanations were complete and he laid out a diagnosis/treatment plan to made sense.

November 21, 2013

Dr. Abraham is amazing. He puts me at ease when he outlines my treatment plan and explains everything step by step.

November 21, 2013

I found Dr. Abraham to be very professional yet personable. I have no hesitation referring him to my friends, as a matter of info, I already have!

November 20, 2013

Dr. Abraham was one of the best doctors I have encountered and was very nice and sweet during my exam.....Wonderful guy

November 18, 2013

I have never had such an attentive doctor. He took the time to explain things carefully and so I could understand him. He asked questions. He was kind and calm.

October 30, 2013

This provider is an excellent physician who in addition to addressing concerns that brought me to this clinic also expressed interest regarding my overall health concerns.

Dr. Abraham and Dr. Buchmann are great!

October 21, 2013

Dr. Abraham has been amazing. I am very happy and have no intention of finding another care provider.

October 21, 2013

I wish I would of had all my treatment done at Huntsmans.

October 14, 2013

Dr. Jacob, Dr. Buchmann and Dr. Abrahm were all great. All showed concern, when FNA did not go as expected Dr. Buchmann called in Dr Abrahm and pushed the scheduling so it could be completed that day. All Dr.'s were great. Dr. Abrahm has the best bedside manner of any Dr. I have ever seen. He is a caring, professional, person, who gave his best.

October 14, 2013

Dr Abraham demonstrated a very caring and professional manner. He spent a great deal of time explaining my issues and options for resolution. He is fabulous and I would highly recommend him to others.

October 14, 2013

Dr. Abraham seems to really care about me and my situation, does not "talk down" to me, and gives reasons for the recommendations he makes for my health care.

September 20, 2013

good experience

September 11, 2013

This guy listens better than anybody. After 3 doctors, I finally received the help that I needed.

August 26, 2013

Dr. Abraham is an excellent Physician, he demostrated adequate concern and very reassuring.

August 26, 2013

Dr. Abraham is excellent - he is kind, very smart, and thorough. I highly recommend him!

August 19, 2013

He described the medication as "no problem" at all, but, after I left, numerous people told me about problems they'd had with the medication and left me with questions about whether he was completely upfront about the medication course.

August 19, 2013

I enjoyed my visit with the staff however not the bathroom drama !!!!

August 05, 2013

I have recommended Dr. Abraham to my nephew.

August 05, 2013

I have already recommended Dr. Abraham to a friend who has recently been diagnosed with thyroid issues.

August 02, 2013

Dr. Abraham was great. He listened carefully to my concerns and explained my condition. I left feeling like I really understood what was going on and had been involved with the process. He was very kind and caring.

July 19, 2013

I feel Dr Abraham is the best doctor. He takes the time to listen & explain. I fell like he actually cares about my health. I work in Cody Wyoming during the summer. My thyroid nodule was hurting me. I drove all the way down to Salt Lake on my day off to see Dr Abraham because I'm so comfortable with his care. I would recommend him to anyone with a thyroid nodule.

June 28, 2013

It seemed that the MD was not certain that my medical record on computer screen was mine. He asked during visit for my birthdate. Also asked about a second surgery I didn't have. I didn't feel confident he k ew who I was.

June 12, 2013

Dr. Abraham is very personable.

June 07, 2013

Again, greatest doctor I have ever been to. Very approachable and knowledgable.

May 21, 2013

Dev is the best Doc I have ever worked with.

May 06, 2013

Dr. Abraham is very nice and he took the time to talk to me. Besides having to wait, the only other complaint I have is that he rushed through the ultrasound. Maybe because it was getting late on Friday afternoon, but I would guess he spent less than five minutes doing that and never spoke to me, just to the other guy.

May 03, 2013

Dr. Abraham is always very knowledgeable and caring.

April 25, 2013

Excellent.

April 22, 2013

Mostly concerned about follow-up after my blood work was done. No call even after I phoned the office and asked for a follow-up call.

April 16, 2013

dr didn't listen. I had to give the same answers over and over. he assumed too much about my previous history instead of asking and listening to the answers

April 15, 2013

My experience on this, my second visit to the clinic, was very good - I had no concerns as I left the building.

March 09, 2013

I didn't appreciate the Dr. Until I had to recently see a diiferent doctor, dr. Abraham is an excellent doctor and he listens very well to my concerns. Gave great advise on my care. His nurses are equally kind and attentive. I highly recommend this entire office.

February 27, 2013

Dr. Abraham was amazing. He sat with me and my Mom and spoke with us until we understood exactly what to do. He was extremely friendly and helpful. I would recommend him to anyone needing his expertise.

February 26, 2013

Dr. Abraham was extremely friendly and didn't waste anytime discussing business, which I like. Clearly, very knowledgible, has good bedside manners and was very easy to talk to.

February 08, 2013

An excellent experience all around

February 05, 2013

The care provider did not spend much time with me. It seemed like they were in a hurry to leave.

February 04, 2013

The doctor was knowledgeable, but he needs to work on listening skills! I kept being interrupted.

February 01, 2013

Dr. Abraham was very informative, answered all my questions and explained procedures/recommendation clearly without being condescending. I would highly recommend him.

January 22, 2013

This was a much better experience from my first visit with Dr. Abraham. I almost canceled to find a new doctor. Thought I would give him another shot. Maybe he was having a rough day. I was very pleased that bedside manner was dramatically improved.

January 21, 2013

He didn't explain anything at all to me. I still don't understand what I am dealing with and what my options are and if there is anything I could be doing to help myself feel better

January 14, 2013

I am waiting to hear from Dr. Abraham or Dr. Jason Hunt (ENT) for my next decision, posibly surgery.

January 08, 2013

Dr Abraham was incredible. He spent about an hour with me and explained everything using a drawing that drew. HE WAS GREAT!

December 31, 2012

Dr Abraham is always very personable, respectful of my opinions, and thorough. He discusses all treatments and asks for my input. I am very pleased with my experiences with him as my doctor.

November 26, 2012

Written instructions from intern were very helpful in my trying to remember several actions I need to take before my return appointment.

November 13, 2012

Dr abraham was great! He should great concern for me and what was going on with my thyroid! I greatly appreciated his care and concern!

November 06, 2012

Dr. Abraham is a fantastic physician. Very knowledgable and likable.

October 29, 2012

”I got somewhat acquainted with Dr. Abraham, and I feel confident that we'll have a good experience.

October 16, 2012

My doctor was very complete in his explinations and helped me to understand all that was involved. thanks.

October 09, 2012

Dr. Abraham was very courteous and thorough with his explanations as he conducted an ultrasound of my thyroid and compared the results with those of an exam done in February in another clinic, by another doctor.

October 08, 2012

Just wish we lived closer to Salt Lake. This whole medical complex (and the STAFF) is incredible.

October 07, 2012

Dr. Abraham saw me 2 different times and both times he was very cold, not compassionate at all and it seemed like he would rather argue with me about my symptoms and care rather listen to me and try to help me. He didn't like me talking about what my surgeon wanted me to do. Dr.A. Stayed as far away from me as possible-always leaning on the door or backing away as I leaned forward. It was as if he thot I was contagious. He snapped at me a lot. He was quite condescending at times. Made me very sad...I have never had a dr. Be so unkind and uncaring. I could feel that he really didn't like me and I'm a nice person. I was scared and needed help and guidance that this dr. Didn't want to give. Sad.

October 06, 2012

Dr. Abraham is wonderful! Dr. Abraham met me mid-way through my thyroid cancer experience. He assisted me in getting opinions from the Huntsman, and helped me by giving me ultrasounds to ease my mind and to check for spread of cancer. Dr. Abraham gave me a lot of peace of mind and comfort at a very difficult time. He is very professional, kind, and knowledgable. During my last visit he gave my children stuffed animals because they were acting up a bit. He took his time and was very responsive to my inquiries. He gave me my options and described each. He is a great doctor and really takes time with patients. I felt very informed.

October 04, 2012

Dr. Abraham is very competent, clearly up on the latest in his field.

August 28, 2012

I hope that my next visit will be more through.

July 23, 2012

Doc was condescending about my current medication administration. Looked at older lab results stated that they were going in the right direction, when clearly they had tripled.

July 23, 2012

Everything was perfect!

July 02, 2012

I really didn't have any concerns - just a follow-up after cancer treatment several years ago, so appreciated the prompt and uncomplicated examination and discussion.

May 09, 2012

it good and very patient

May 02, 2012

Dr. Abraham is wonderful. He asked me to provide more data from previous blood work and then called me at home to discuss what those data meant. I particularly appreciated his and Dr. Hunt's working as a team. I knew I was getting top-notch care.

April 26, 2012

I especially appreciate the time he spent with us to calm me down and give me confidence in my decision.

April 11, 2012

Dr Abraham displays more skill and professionalism than any doctor I've been associated with in the past.

April 07, 2012

I really think Dr. Abraham is great! I feel he is by far one of the best doctors I have ever seen & I would definitely recommend him to others.

April 07, 2012

Very good experience!

March 29, 2012

Dr. Abraham seems like a good doctor who knows what he's doing, but did not seem very confident in what he was saying and did not explain much about my condition to me.

March 28, 2012

Very attentive, very thorough, pleased to understand my condition better and my contribution to my care.

March 20, 2012

I decided to switch providers after this visit

February 25, 2012

THANK YOU!

February 07, 2012

Total waste of time. I drove 110 miles one way to have the doctor look at my lab results which I brought with me and he guarenteed me that I did not have a tumor from the blood work. I didn't come to find out if I had a tumor. He did not ask me what symptoms I was experiencing. I am following up with another doctor.

February 07, 2012

I was just in for an annual checkup so it wasn't as if I needed anything major or any new explanations.

January 31, 2012

I love my Doctor-he was great & gave me every single answer that I needed...any concerns, questions, etc.

January 19, 2012

Dr. Abraham has always been very friendly and answers questions thoroughly. He shows genuine concern for the welfare and happiness of his patients. I have recommended him to friends.

January 07, 2012

Dr. Abraham is very attentive to the needs of the patient and is good at relating info in regards to the patient's condition
