Ratings for Dr. E. Carl Abbott
A sterling example of "old fashioned professionalism" and a wonderful gentleman to boot. I truly wish the newbies in med school could take a page from his book, about listening, understanding, and taking time. All dying characteristics. Even my own Dr. lacks these qualities and it is sad. But I do also recognize the health system is overstressed.
dr carl abbott had done a old report on me that i have gave to a ..number of doctors.this report could be the peice of the puzle in regards to my health issues.I hope the doctors look at his results. Bcause DR Carl Abbott in my oppinion was one of the best .And if this could help solve my issues.by looking at his old report that would be great doctors read this site?
I was most surprised at the positive experience I had with Dr. Abbott. As an RN I have come to expect little from the 'system' but this Dr. was an exception. He not only addressed the problem but explored other issues to help as well.(I did not tell him I was a nurse until near the end of the consult).While it wasn't pleasant to also have to talk about weight he did so in a kindly manner, and after some good discussion he referred me to a colleague that hopefully can help. Dr. Abbott took more time than any Dr. I have seen to ask important questions. Upon leaving he stated 'please do take care of the weight, the work you do with homeless youth is too important to lose you'. So kind!
Missed the diagnosis of severe hyperthyroidism.When I was sent back to him years later he made a comment about my weight. I had put on weight after having a baby.Then I lost it.When he felt my thyroid he said he felt a thickening.Gee ya think.When I left my former doc and went and asked for a thyroid scan I was told I had a build up of scar tissue from the untreated hyperthyroidism.Incompetent!
This doctor does not appear to be knowledgable about thyroid or treatments. Makes silly excuses for a sympthom, with the test results clearly showing a thyroid in very bad state. Disbelieved a reaction to a drug. Wish I had not seen him, he made me feel hopeless.
