Sharon Fox

"Dr Abroms and his staff are very professional and pleasant with my mom. She recently had cataract surgery in both eyes and recently had to have a laser procedure. The staff are very friendly and always smiling when assisting my mom. She has dementia and sometimes can be a bit difficult but they seem to bring out the best in her."

Jill DeMers

Diane Kerner

"Doctor Adam Abroms has is a absolute fantastic practice. Starting from himself...he is professional and in tune with his patients without being distant. When you avail yourself of his help he is going to educate you on whatever You need. You won’t leave his office not really understanding what he has said..thorough is just second nature to him. He takes time with you and you leave feeling like you should...”your in good hands”. From the time You call to make a appointment from when you check in with them you are treated as you should be...with respect. While I was there for the first time I saw smiles and witnessed each and everyone one the staff doing what their job was with wonderful attitudes. I didn’t know some information but they assured me they would get anything they helpful. How many of us go to a doctor’s office only to leave feeling confused about what the doctor Said and aggravated with the staff’s rude attitude. I certainly have! Good for you Dr. Abroms for making sure you are doing what you should do regarding making your practice work. As for myself, I would not hesitate to be a forever patient and use his facilities for my needs. If you want the best this is where you will get it!!!"

Anna Wilds

"This has been a new experience for me..I found everyone very professional and courteous... Made sure my needs were met... Next step for me is cataract surgery and I have all the confidence in the procedure..."

Peggy Rhea

"I went to Dr Abroms for a number of years when he was with another group. After he relocated to ADV Vision, I remained at his previous location for over a year, but was not pleased. So happy to locate him once again and return to his excellent care. Staff were friendly and helpful."

Joanne Hopkins

"Everyone there was super nice. has alzheimers and some people get short with her because she forgets what they tell her to do but they took their time and explained everything to her. Thank you!"

Dawn Pasetta
