What Dr Abernathy's Patients Are Saying

“I have had nothing by positive experiences at TUCC for over 5 years. I was treated for a very rare form of bladder cancer at MD Anderson down in Houston in 2010. Dr. Brett Abernathy at TUCC has provided my follow-up care here in Colorado since that time. Dr. Abernathy has a wonderful bedside manner and always takes the time to answer all of my questions. I have never had any problems scheduling appointments and have always found the staff to be polite and professional. TUCC has a state of the art facility, and I would not hesitate to recommend TUCC and Dr. Abernathy to friends and family members.”

“Dr. Abernathy was recommended to me and I was very pleased with his practice. He is very friendly, professional and caring.”

“Dr. Abernathy and his staff are very professional and have sincere interest in their patients.”

“Dr. Abernathy has treated me with honesty and great skill. He responds in ways I can understand and then goes into greater depth with my wife, who is a nurse practitioner.”
