STAY AWAY FROM THIS DOCTOR!

As someone who has dealt with doctors and hospitals my entire life and having seen the good and bad side of both. I began seeing Dr. Abernathy at University of Iowa Hosptials under the Iowa Care Program. I immediatly felt the "I am better than you" attitude that he possess. He immediately took me off one of my diabetes medications. My blood sugars and A1C began to increase. In response to this he told me I was eating way too many carbohydrates. Then, he began increasing both of my insulin dosages. My mom who is a nurse couldn't believe how much insulin he was prescribing to me. I went to a different doctor locally and right away was put back on the diabetes medication that Dr. Abernanthy took me off of. The doctor that I saw was shocked that he had me on such high does of two different insulins. All of my blood sugars and A1C levels went back into normal ranges. I am thankful that I now have insurance and can see a doctor who cares about me and my health . I would advise anyone to avoid Dr. Abernanthy. He is one of the most arragant and demening doctors I have ever met and should not be allowed to pratice medicine.

Foreign objects? No, it's cancer!

I have seen Dr. Abernathy 4-5 times since 2009. The first time I saw him in 2009 was regarding a knee problem. I immediately knew he looked down on me because I have Iowa Care insurance. I got the feeli g he couldn't wait to get rid of me. When I saw him again in 2010. I told him that I was having trouble with frequent urination, getting erections, blood in my stool, and generally not feeling myself. He showed little to no interest or empathy for my situation. At one point I asked for A Viagra prescription. To be continued.....

Shows NO empathy

He spends your entire visit entering information in the computer. Did not even address the problem that I made the appointment for. He is very arrogant, and does not listen. Don't bother going to this doctor it will be a waste of your time!

I have a very complicated medical history and have seen alot of different physicians over the last few years. I was very pleased with the time Dr. Abernathy took with me. He was very compassionate and caring. We need more like him!
