Testimonials:
Dr. Abelowitz is an extremely knowledgeable and caring doctor. I have two year old twins, and thanks to Dr. Abelowitz, he diagnosed my son with mild Cerebral Palsy at 6 weeks old. This allowed us to do early intervention therapies and he is currently showing very little signs of CP. I am so grateful to him for knowing that something was not right; had we waited and not diagnosed it and not had therapies, my little man would not be where he is today. Dr. Abelowitz definitely cares and is a top notch doctor. We recently had our two year well checkup, and I was able to tell him that my son had been released from physical therapy and I could see he was genuinely happy and thankful for my son. Bottom line, he is an amazing doctor as well as the other doctors that work in the practice. I have never had an issue getting an appointment. Plus, they are open on the weekends! Another plus given that kids always tend to get sick on the weekend!
