from Joel March 31, 2017 for David M. Abbey, MD, MS, FACP

Dr Abbey is, by far, the best family physician my wife and I have ever had. He has always been outstanding in his thorough and caring treatment of us. We were lucky to have found him, but it was not altogether due to luck. We asked some friends who are physicians, who they would choose for their own family physicians. Dr Abbey was on the short list of every one we asked.

from Bonnie March 28, 2017 for David M. Abbey, MD, MS, FACP

I have known David since I gave him cookies as a kid out my back door. He is both a friend and my doctor. He carries on the Abbey tradition that began with his father. I am blessed to be included in his client list.

from Betsey March 27, 2017 for David M. Abbey, MD, MS, FACP

My husband and I both feel very lucky to have found Dr Abbey! We feel like saying Thank you everyday! He is an excellent Dr. that truly cares about his patients. His office staff is also superior.
I can not imagine what we would do without him.
Thank you Dr. Abbey! You are a very special Doctor and person!
Betsey and George

from Edward in ID February 6, 2015 for David M. Abbey, MD, MS, FACP

Dr. Abbey and his staff provide a comfortable atmosphere for patients that lowers the patient's stress level when health issues rear their ugly head. Dr. Abbey also has unmatched record at being Spot On when rare medical conditions arise. This talent of his builds patient's confidence in his pronouncements.

from Lynn in CO February 25, 2014 for David M. Abbey, MD, MS, FACP

I appreciate being able to reach Dr. Abbey quickly even on a weekend and being able to get in to see him most times on the same day. He had taken time to counsel me with some difficult medical issues which face me and our family. His advice and that of his wonderful staff is most valuable.

from Rene' in CO February 23, 2014 for David M. Abbey, MD, MS, FACP

Dear Dr. Abbey,

Happy National Doctors day! I cant think of any doctor (besides my daughter of course) that is more deserving of recognition on this very special day. It is difficult to find words meaningful enough to express my gratitude for what you have done for me; however, Ill give it a try.

from Mary (Janie) in CO February 22, 2014 for David M. Abbey, MD, MS, FACP

Dr. Abbey shared my health status in a way that empowered me to be more in control of my choices. He acknowledges the barriers to better health but does not enable excuse making. I am exercising more and have lost weight in the last year. I am confident that my health questions will be addressed quickly and with evidence based answers. The office staff is professional, kind, and organized… See more
