Ratings for Dr. Crystal Abernathy
Dr. Abernathy is WONDERFUL!! After 4 years of an off and on skin condition, she was the only one who actually ran a comprehensive blood and stool tests to get to the bottom of my problem. No one else took the time to do this. With her knowledge and my test results, we are working on the root cause to be sure it doesn't happen again. I would highly recommend her to any one is in need of someone who will work with them to figure out their problem!
I started my journey with Dr Abernathy in September 2015, after having no luck with MDs. I had several health issues, and MDs just treated symptoms with prescriptions, which often didn't help. Dr. Abernathy is so easy to talk to, takes her time, is attentive, professional & knowledgeable. Through listening and lab work, she got to the root cause of my issues, all of which boiled down to inflammation in my body, vitamin deficiencies & a much needed change in my diet. She never keeps me waiting for my appointments & responds quickly to email. With her help, I am feeling better than I have in years.
Dr. Abernathy takes a holistic approach to your health. She did comprehensive blood work on me to see the FULL picture of what was going on and isn't restricted by you just being with the normal range. If you're too low or too high with a normal range she treats you and I like that!! I wish I had found her sooner. She's very responsive to your questions, does her best to meet your individual needs, and keeps a very thorough record of you; obviously reviewing it before she responds to your questions. I've NEVER had such an attentive doctor. She has also thoroughly researched the best products and supplements that she recommends to you based on your blood work to make sure it is the purest and most beneficial for you. I highly recommend her.
For ten years I've battled debilitating symptoms from interferon therapy for hepatitis c. From a healthy, vibrant life to exhaustion, inactivity, and pain. I knew this could be repaired, but was at a loss for answers. This very day I've received answers and basic understanding of how to begin. Specific explanations of why I'm so ill and more important how it can be changed. I have a long road ahead. But for the first night in a decade I'll be sleeping better. Waking up with purpose and direction-at last. Life changing, thorough, supportive.
I started seeing Dr. Abernathy in the summer of 2014 after being diagnosed with lupus. I was having trouble walking and had systemic inflammation and terrible joint pain daily. Dr. Abernathy guided me through a very frightening time. She is so knowledgeable and had such confidence that I could recover from my autoimmune disorder. She was the first doctor I encountered who seemed hopeful. Dr. Abernathy ordered extensive testing to determine what was causing my immune system to malfunction. She was very patient and detailed in explaining the results to me. She found just the right combination of vitamins and other supplements that I needed to right my body's imbalances and get me healthier again. I have made so much progress toward recovery with her guidance. My joints are functioning (when I first started seeing her I could not have typed this much), the inflammation has stopped, and I'm so grateful. I can not recommend her enough. Thank you!
Wow! Awesome Doctor! I starting having health problems several years ago which lead me to see numerous medical doctors. These doctors placed me on various prescription drugs for several years. My health problems did not get any better with the prescription drugs, but worse. So, I decided to take a natural/holistic approach to treat my health problems. I met Dr. Abernathy in February 2014. This first visit started a journey with her which has improved my health greatly. Many thanks to Dr. Abernathy! I would highly recommend Dr. Abernathy to anyone.
I did not enjoy the interaction with Dr. Abernathy. I felt she focused more on the cost of everything versus putting together a comprehensive plan for me. What people are willing to pay for healthcare is different so I would have preferred she focus on the plan and its importance and then let determine if I wanted to pay for it. Not sure rates for naturopathic doctors are consistent so I'd suggest shopping around and getting personal referrals.
I contacted Dr. Abernathy in December, 2012 to ask if she could recommend a Naturopathic Physician in my hometown (as she used to practice here). She said there were none in this area, but was happy to schedule a phone appointment with me. So I scheduled a two hour appt during which Dr. Abernathy asked questions, learning all about my health history and my current diagnosis of cervical dysplasia. I was looking for a natural remedy for the dysplasia and treatment of the HPV virus. We discussed a 3 mo. protocol of supplements, which I decided to try. Great news - 3 months later I was free of dyplasia! Dr. Abernathy also made recommendations for hypothyroidism, which I plan to follow. I contacted her many times via email, all of which she responded to immediately. Subsequent to the normal PAP, I have continued to follow Dr. Abernathy's recommendations for a maintenance protocol. I would recommend her to anyone, and would seek her advice again for other conditions if necessary.
I have the utmost respect for Dr. Abernathy. Her extensive knowledge of natural medicine and her sincere desire to help people heal was obvious from my first meeting with her, where she listened to my problems like a friend and then gave advice as a medical professional. She keeps up to date with the latest medical research, follows up with me after a visit, and is willing to work with my irregular schedule. I definitely recommend Dr. Abernathy to anyone who wants a holistic approach to their healthcare.
I have been a patient of Dr. Crystal Abernathy since April of 2004. I initially met with Dr. Abernathy as a follow-up to my treatment for breast cancer. After seeing a variety of specialists associated with my treatment for cancer, it has been very beneficial to consult with a naturopathic doctor who takes a holistic approach to my care. I have continued to see Dr. Abernathy to improve my overall health and have been grateful for the excellent care she has provided. I have found her to be consistently thorough, knowledgeable, and professional.
