Personal Statment

Cardiology became my focus once I realized the beauty and complexity of the heart. I enjoy putting the many pieces of symptoms, medications, anatomy and testing together to see the problem and help patients fix it so that they can lead a better life.

I believe in caring for the whole person and treating the individual, rather than the organ or lab result. My patients are not a number to me. My patients are humans with lives, families, hopes and dreams. My job is to help my patients reach their health goals.

Outside of medicine, my passions include yoga, natural living and getting out in nature as much as possible.

      Dr. Abrams is the best doctor I've had - her communication skills are the best there is. You can simply have a normal conversation with her about your concerns, and she listens and offers her expert advice, opinions, and treatments while still staying conversational. Please, do not let Dr. Abrams leave UK Healthcare!

      Never saw her, as explained above. One hour and fifteen minutes wait time is way beyond the limit of my patience. Medical personnel often forget that perhaps the patient's time is just as important as theirs.

      Everyone was very friendly and upbeat. Because all signs point to my current treatment being ideal, everyone agreed to continue as is.

      *Dee understands how to look at me as an entire person and not just my heart. She understands that the body is complex systems that must work together and she knows how to reach out to other physicians to get a total care plan.
