Ratings for Dr. Abram M. London
My mother has been a patient of Dr. London for over 25 years. He has always been cranky, mean, and not a good doctor for that matter. Yesterday he informed my 80 year old mother that he is going to become a "boutique physician," requiring a $2000 annual fee to continue as his patient. If she is not willing to pay $2000 upfront, she can find herself another doctor. My mother was absolutely devastated. He always was a terrible excuse for a doctor, and this just proves it. He should be ashamed.
Dr. London is one of the smartest and most insightful doctors I've ever known. He's also smart enough to know when to refer patients to specialists. I have major health issues and have been seeing him for over 25 years. While I'd like a doc who was closer to me geographically, I'll stick with the best!
Terrible personality -- gruff is not the word, even worse. An hour wait is not uncommon. Too quick to write a scrip. Also not encouraging. Very pessimistic about many issues that lots of patients deal with such as weight, cholesterol, etc. Very happy with new Doc and so glad I left.
My colleague referred me to Dr. London after I expressed frustration at not being able to reach my doctor at the Lahey Clinic. I have seen Dr. London about 10 times since. Though he can be gruff and impatient, I have found him very attentive and thorough, never overbooked, always available -- on the phone or in person -- and very insightful. If you want an old fashioned, conservative, insightful, intelligent, and caring doctor this is your man. If you want a lot of hand holding and hugging -- try another.
