After going through 5 previous doctors - either moved or retired - Dr. Abernathy was a pleasant surprise. He took his time on the 1st visit to get to know me and I was impressed by his manner, knowledge, demeanor.

I'm glad to hear that you had a good experience. What you describe is really what I try to do for all my patients: listen to them, really understand their complaints and issues, and then work with them to put together a clear course of action. It's the kind of thing that takes as long as it takes, and I'm happy to take the time.

Dr. Abernethy is a very knowledgeable and competent physician. He always takes time to answer my questions and address my concerns. He reviews treatment options with me. He fully explains things so that I can understand. He is very prompt in renewing my prescriptions and answering questions that I send him online via the Centura Health website. I have a lot of confidence in him. His staff is very friendly and caring.

Thank you for the positive comments. As I said in my response to your comment on Healthgrades, I fully believe that my patients should understand the diagnosis and recommended course of treatment that we discuss during our visit. I enjoy explaining my clinical thought process and want to make sure that patients are involved in the process of developing their treatment plan.

Dr. Abernethy take time to make sure you understand your situation fully and does so in plain English. He doesn't tire of my endless questioning even if it means telling me the same thing more than once. His diagnoses have been spot-on, and I feel at ease whenever I see him.

A great experience and Doctor. He took his time and I never felt rushed. He asked pertinent questions and offered options for treatments. I have many different issues that need to be taken into account and really felt like he cared and was treating me as a whole person rather than my individual ailments. I would definitely recommend Dr. Abernethy to friends and family.
