About

Dee A. Abrams is a native Kentuckian and lives in Lexington with her husband and two children. She obtained her Bachelor of Science in athletic training from Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond and has more than 20 years of experience in the field. She attended the University of Kentucky and obtained her master's degree in physician assistant studies in 2005. She is board certified and has extensive experience in cardiology, neurosurgery and internal medicine.

Personal Statement

Cardiology became my focus once I realized the beauty and complexity of the heart. I enjoy putting the many pieces of symptoms, medications, anatomy and testing together to see the problem and help patients fix it so that they can lead a better life.

I believe in caring for the whole person and treating the individual, rather than the organ or lab result. My patients are not a number to me. My patients are humans with lives, families, hopes and dreams. My job is to help my patients reach their health goals.

Outside of medicine, my passions include yoga, natural living and getting out in nature as much as possible.

      I was nervous because no one came back to discuss the test results after the monitor was placed. I don't guess they were available or maybe the report wasn't. I understand she had access to the imaging tho. Was confusing

      Dee is really wonderful. Discussed everything clearly and concisely, answered all of my questions and most importantly (to me), I was not rushed or made to feel like I was wasting her time since this was a one year follow up, which can be tedious I'm sure if there are more critical patients waiting. Honestly the best UK visit I've had since my two former primary doctors (Dr. Huang and Dr. Cardarelli respectively, left).

      Dee Abrams is amazing! Her energy and positive attitude made me comfortable and confident in her diagnosis and treatment! Dee was thorough in explaining my issues, plan for additional testing and follow up schedule. Dee knows what she is doing and she helped me lower my anxiety with my issues. Dee was very professional yet relatable and made me feel that she cared. Wonderful! Amazing! Blessed to have her treating me!

      I have had no complaints with my appointments with Dee Abrams. While I don't look forward to medical appointments, I don't mind at all to go to these. Dee explains everything and makes clear what she sees with my health and is very easy to talk with and discuss issues.
