Dr. Abernathy was very pleasant and patient. Very willing to answer questions. After the negative reviews posted here, I had to check her nametag twice just be sure it was the same person! She's far, far more personable than another dermatologist I know who has positive reviews. I'd describe her as personable, professional, and courteous and I have good confidence in her abilities based on my visit. She explained my condition, made sure I was comfortable during the procedure, and let me know what to expect in the future, setting my mind at ease.

I had been patient for some lazer treatments afew years ago at Blue Ridge and had seen Dr Abernathy, so when I developed a rash over most of my body my Duke primary care physician thought I should be seen by a dermatolgist. I went back to Dr Abernathy. She not only kept me waiting almost two hours from my appointment time ( 45 in smock) when she finally did come in she pronouced it was poison ivy and left the room . I was sure it was not poison ivy, but she walked out when I treied to ask a question , saying over her shoulder she knew what it was .. After a 2 hour wait she spent less than a minute with me. The lab tests eventually showed it was NOT poison ivy. Over the years I have had several surgeries and seen seen many physicians and been hospitalized many times. This woman is the rudest of any physician I have been to see anywhere. I never did find out what caused the rash. To add injury to insult when I questioned their billing instead of explaining the difference , they turned me into collection agency. My insurance changed and I never got an explanation. I think I will have to hire a lawyer to help me clear this up, but I would rather do that than give this woman an extra penny.

Absolutely the worst doctor I have ever been to.Was referred by primary care and was still unable to get an appointment for one month. Marcie and Kathy were so accurate about their experience with Dr. Abernathy---mine was so similar, except I almost died in her office from a severe reaction.I ended up in the hospital for 6 days. This doctor should def. be disciplined and observed and possibly placed on probation for her unprofessional decisions and actions. I feel she is a very incompetant physician.

I was a patient of hers for about 6 years, moved away from Raleigh a few months ago. She is very professional, diagnosed my skin cancer, listened well. She gave me free samples on most visits. She is no chatty-kathy but I prefer that while I'm sitting there half naked in a paper smock. I think she is kinda spunky, I don't know why people would think she is cold. I miss this doc and hope I can find someone like her here in Florida.

I saw Dr. Abernathy for the first time today. I had no wait, she and her staff were very nice and professional and I ended up having extra items taken care of, which I did not think I would be able to. Overall, very satisfied.

I have been a patient of Dr Abernaty's for several years and have never experienced anything negative. She is a very thorough doctor. I have seen her for full body exams and checks on suspicious areas. The office staff is very polite. The nurses are very helpful, especially with call-in questions. I have seen other dermatologists and in my opinion, she's the best. I highly recommend and have referred several friends to Dr. Abernathy.

Looking for anything better than this!

WOW, Kathi P. I could not have said it better myself. I waited over a month to get an appointment with her and experienced all of the same as you described this week. I am desperately looking for a good dermatologist after this experience!! Any suggestions?

Saw her several years ago and then switched as she seemed to be working on "the clock." Decided to try her again only to have my first impressions reinforced. Deals with patient through her nurse; when she finally shows up for your designated two minutes of her time talks to nurse as if you aren't there. Absolutely does not listen; is somewhat condescending very standoffish. It's as if patient is a mere inconvenience and invasion of her time. I think if someone has anything out of the ordinary, she would miss it. Most fustrating experience I have ever had with a doctor,

I have a severe skin rash. I have been seen @ an urgent care facility that referred me to this group - 1st on the list. the very rude receptionist - not helpful at all informs me that the 1st available appt. is Feb 2010! has no suggestions for me - does not take a "wait list". no empathy whatsoever. I suppose that I will have to go the the emergency room to get a referral - waste of insurance money for sure! what other choice do I have? I have called other dermat. groups - all others booked too but at least they were friendly! I will let my Urgent care know about my experience and have them take this group off of the top! I am reading the other reviews..I suppose the doctors need to be grateful that they have so much business that they can act in this way. perhaps their attitude would change if suddenly they found themselves without "customers".

I have seen this doctor at Blue Ridge on several occasions. While she is an OK doctor, the clinic as a whole needs some work. Always have to wait a long time and feel treated like a number.

Dr. Abernathy was very thorough with regards to my examination, but she was a bit standoffish as far as her bedside manner was concerned. I scheduled my first appointment for a body screening and for an issue I had, and she only checked my affected area, and would not do the full scan. To the point that I thought a machine did the scan, which was why I had to come back again. I had to make a second visit, and ultimately ended up being there for about ten minutes, for her to check me. I couldn't understand why this wasn't done already at the other visit, and she didn't bother to tell me. So-so experience.
