MENOPAUSE SPECIALIST DR. MICHAEL ABRAHAMS PARTNERS WITH HIS PATIENTS
From Dr. Abrahams:
"As a menopause specialist it is my objective to get a complete a picture of my patients. The symptoms of menopause and perimenopause vary and can manifest quite differently from patient to patient. Each woman has a unique physiology and psychology. In additon I understand a visit to the gynecologist is not always comfortable and I make sure to take a face to face, outside of the exam room, thorough in-take of medical history including questions about lifestyle. Together we can manage your symptoms through menopause and get you the treatment and support you need.
-Michael Abrahams, MD
"A friend recommended Dr. Abrahams to me. Before I met him I did my research and was happy to find a doctor specializing in menopause treatment. I am going through menopause now and had been experiencing hot flashes and insomnia. I liked Dr. Abrahams right away. He was compassionate and understanding of my symptoms. He put me on a regimen of estrogen and progesterone and this treatment has really helped me. Dr. Abrahams really knows what he is doing, especially when it comes to hormonal treatments. I have been a patient for a couple of years now and I feel like he listens to me. He is always considerate of my time and never in a rush–something you don’t always feel with doctors. The combination of compassion, expertise and consideration make him a very good doctor."
