Self-verified patient of Dr. Richard E Abbott - Posted on December 15th, 2015
Dr. Abbott has been my physician for twenty years. He is responsive, intelligent, personable, and listens well. He takes time to find out what is up with the patient and to talk about everything related to the patient's health. In emergency situations, even when I've been under the care of other doctors or out of town, he and his administrative staff have always been helpful and available. I consider myself lucky to have him as my PCP.
