Ratings for Dr. Dean A. Abramson
Rude, rude, rude, arrogant and unfriendly. Not at all forthright and open regarding anything in my test results, very difficult to get information from. It's hard to know how much knowledge he does/doesn't have because his bedside manner is so poor and his communication skills are so low. His attitude is very condescending and haughty. I requested a new doctor within their practice, but no one, not even those who say they are accepting new patients, would agree. Unfortunately they're the only gastros in town. Fortunately, higher quality care is only 20 miles away. This guy needs to retire. Sooner the better.
Worst dr ever. Went twice, took 3 months for 2nd appointment. He rushed me, did not listen to how my symptoms changed between visits, had horrible bedside manner and was adamant my prior diagnosis was still the problem even though I told him it wasn't, said he was going to "check on something" but never came back and sent in his nurse instead with more lab tests for my prior condition. Lab tests confirmed that the prior infection was no longer present so he ordered a 2nd invasive colonoscopy without even further consultation with me. I left message on his nurse's personal voicemail to schedule and she never called me back at my request. Person who took my vitals was rude and acted like I was a burden when she couldn't find my notes from referring dr. I felt like a complete number here and that my concerns did not matter. Like other reviews state they are only office in CR and they would not let me change dr's. I'm going to Iowa City in future because I hate this dr so much.
didn't asked too many questions been to him before and been scoped in my stomach says they never find any thing i have nausea with mecications and have to look up on line to find out what causes it i knew it was the pain medication but he would not confirm took 3 weeks to get an appointment by the time i saw my stomach was some better you can never get in when its important
This practice:*prides itself on seeing as many people as possible in a day *is the only one of its kind in town and * will not let you request to see a new Dr if you do not like the one you were assigned to. This is not a patient friendly premise. As far as I can tell, Dr. Abramson is the worst of the bunch. He does not listen to you as a patient, rushes through the visit, won't respond to questions/concerns and has this irritating way of acting like he is going to check on something for you or bring a sample, then bolts out of the door when you aren't done talking, leaving a nurse in his place. Most physicians I have seen always make sure there isn't anything else than can do for me or make sure they have answered my questions before leaving. I get the sense he is done and wants out, not caring if the patient feels helped or not. Skip this Dr and make sure to request someone else.
I had the displeasure of seeing this local "expert" gastroenterologist on numerous occasions after being referred to him by my then family doctor. Each time I met with him, I left his presence feeling offended and humiliated. Dr. Abramson may in fact have the credentials to practice in the field of his choice, but, in my opinion, he is incapable of accepting and treating patients professionally and without bias. I base that statement on the fact that, early on in my interactions with him, he became very agitated with the doctor who referred me to him. Not only was I subjected to a scathing inquisition from him about why I was referred to him and why my symptoms merited his services, he also informed me that the referring doctor would receive a harsh letter from him in the near future. From that point on, I believe he did every thing he could do to be rid of me as a patient. I still have the same health problems, and, oddly enough, the referring doctor left town a short time later.
