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.

Excellent care and service from everyone. Thank you.

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.

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

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.

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

Very good experience!

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.

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.
