Abbie is amazing and I'm so glad I found her, she's such a gem. She genuinely cares and never seems to be in a rush. Abbie is a lead example of how other providers should be. I also like that she is able to do Telehealth so I don't have to travel and relaxes my anxiety about adding yet another thing onto my plate.

Abbie is amazing! Truly the Best doctor that I have in my medical team of doctors hands down. Really cares for her patients. Let them have input in their care. I have felt lately that many doctors that I see anymore (through a different hospital system) don't either have the time or care to listen. Abbie makes sure that I feel heard, not put off.

April 15, 2022

Great. Abbie always goes above and beyond. She is a great listener and great provider. You are blessed to have someone with such a passion for helping others. Her nurse Becky is also on top of her game. She is always available for you, if you leave her a message to call you back, you can always count on her to do what she says. A great team. Those 2 are great together. Is there a daisy award that goes out for nurses, if so, I would love to nominate Becky.

April 14, 2022

I was having issues getting on to My virtual visit which made me much later joining Abbie foe my scheduled 10 am appointment. I had to reinstall My Chart. When I finally connected with Abbie,she took the time listening to me. I never felt rushed even though she could have been or had me reschedule. I would have totally understood because I wouldn't want any other patients to have to wait & start their appointment late. Abbie explained to me that Becky was checking in her other appointment making me feel better about the situation.

Abbie listens to how I feel and she always takes actions to better my health

November 2, 2021

Abbie always cares, takes the time to listen. I feel validated in my concerns. I don't get that from other doctors. She explains why it is a good/bad idea to my suggestions & I feel very comfortable with whatever decisions she makes. She always cares about my well being & not just towards my mental health. I have recommended her to several people & she is the reason that I would travel all the way from Mason City to Clarion & Belmond. I am so glad that she is over in the Garner office & many of my appointments have been through telehealth which is great since I get dizzy often so driving can be a challenge.

October 27, 2021

Abbie always takes the time to listen and clearly walk through any concerns or issues I have. I trust her judgement and would (and do) recommend her to anyone.

October 25, 2021

Abbie is very helpful. I appreciate working with her.
