I loved Dr. Abernathy! I feel so fortunate I chose this pediatric clinic for my daughter to be cared for. She has a wonderful personality and is very knowledgeable. I was impressed with how she cared for my baby! I am a doctor myself and admired her chair side manner!!
Although Dr. Austin is normally our son's PCP, she was unavailable for the specific time we needed the appt. We don't mind seeing Dr. Abernathy instead, as she is equally as wonderful! They are both caring pediatricians.
My 9 year-old and my 5 year-old have come to Moc. Ped. since birth.
*Dr. Abernethy goes above and beyond my expectations!!! She is wonderful!
I have the utmost confidence and trust in Dr. Abernathy for my children. My children feel the same way. She definitely goes that extra mile--the genuine concern and care is apparent as soon as she steps in the room. I am certainly glad that I, as a Mother, have her sharing in the care of my children.
We absolutely LOVE Dr. Abernathy! She's kind and caring and takes time with us. She's got a wonderful demeanor and personality. Our son loves her and loves going to the Dr. We are glad we changed to this office and hope to be seeing them for a long time to come.
