My problem was chronic back pain. I used to wait on appointments for neurosurgery for a year, for the CT scan was long waiting time to, MRI I never even received. But with enormous help from Dr.Ableman, I have solved my problem in less than a year. Dr. Ablemans help was invaluable in selfless dedication to get an appointments as son possible because he understood my terrible pain. Many time he did direct contacts with the Royal Columbia Hospital, and his commitment authority to be Dr.Chan my neurosurgery. Dr.Chan perfectly done his job. Big thanks for him to! Now I am reborn man and therefore, I am immeasurably grateful to Dr. Ableman! Patient: Jovan Cikojevic, Coquitlam

Dr Ableman is the best doctor and the most knowledgeable. He is sweet, kind and compassionate. He cares for his patients and has the most understanding bedside manner. I highly recommend Dr Ableman.

Lol.....this doctor is better known as useless. He has is rude. Never on time. Not helpful....you go in with an issue and come out even more confused....how did this guy ever get certified. My opinion is look for another Dr. If you care about the well being of your family. He can't be trusted with your health

A good no nonsense doctor. A good sense of humor goes a long way :) I was one of his and Doctor Tosefski's first patients, but ended up seeing Tosefski long term. After he left, the natural thing was to go to Ableman as a family doctor.

Dr Ableman has opened this clinic that is open 7 days a week. Each Dr that I have met is extremely knowledgeable and helpful.It is a busy office and so the lines are somewhat frustrating to get through to. I n spite of this , the staff are always very helpful and friendly. I find that it takes 3-6 days to get an appointment with Dr Ableman. I have no problem with this in that it is well worth the wait. Every time I have needed to see a Doc for myself or one of the kids , we have come in as a walk-in and altho we were unable to see Dr Ableman we have been most happy with the other doctors seen I can't believe some of the comments that I have read. I think that these people are ungrateful, needy and delusional in that I have lived in Montreal and am in heaven , knowing what I have here in service versus my past experience back East. THis clinic is amazing for us patients in the Coquitlam area

I use to rave about Dr Ableman when he worked from his former clinic "Able Care" since his diagnosis were always on point. However, now since moving to his new Foothills location i cant get anyone to pick up the phone to make an appointment! After being on hold for 18 mins listening to the same song on repeat, i gave up to make my appointment online. Then i am still waiting for the clinic to confirm that i am their patient, to make an appointment! Every time i call i can never get into see him, thats if i get to speak to a receptionist, so i end up seeing the other drs. What is the point of having a family doctor when i cant even get into see him in almost a year! Ive had to take my children into the walmart walk-in out of desperation to be seen by a dr. Pick up the phone receptionists!! and Dr. Ableman, maybe stop accepting new patients when you clearly dont have time to see the babies you delivered! I'll be switching to another Doctor that has time for us. Sad since he is really good at what he does.... If you can get into see him

Seen him a dozen times now same as my wife and he is exactly the no nonsense doctor I like. The clinics biggest problem is the staff. They have messed up 2 appointments so making me have to wait, good thing I had the card with me and they always seem to forget the paperwork part of their job.

Based on positive comments about this doctor, I was happy to register with his clinic. This changed with the very first appointment. Now, after being with him for some time, I am curious who writes all those comments. Dr. Abelman is arrogant, rude, and made me feel uncomfortable at each visit. I was stressed before and after seeing him every single time. Also, he is never on time. Waiting time normally is about 20-40 minutes. He never considers past diagnosis, and says that everything is fine. The most weird thing is that after 2 minutes he packs his computer and heads to the door ignoring the fact that his patient is still trying to say something. At one of my appointments I did not have time to tell about my complains just because after a routine blood pressure check he left the room saying that he had to see other patients. Actually he always says that. I felt like I'm bothering him with my health concerns. He gets irritated when sees a person who is knowledgable enough to ask certain questions about personal health. His staff also needs to be mentioned here as they are absolutely rude and aggressive. Finally, I have changed the doctor. Don't go to this doctor if you want to have a good care of yourself.

Dr. Ableman was great when I was pregnant and the kids were young. Yes, we had great immunization experiences. Beyond that, I was always disappointed. The comments made about him being "high on himself" are totally on the mark. He is not a hands on Doctor. So many times I would describe symptoms or tell him what was wrong and he would give a quick diagnosis and send us on our way. I considered getting a new doctor for several years. After the 7th misdiagnosis that led to a very severe medical issue for our family I decided to leave. I am so relieved that we now have a doctor who doesn't just pretend to listen but actually uses her medical knowledge. If you are thinking of leaving Dr. Ableman, do it now! If you are thinking of joining him...don't!
