"Testimonials & Reviews"
I have been seeing Dr Abernathy for 7 months now. I was thrilled to be referred to her by a friend. During my first appointment with her, I quickly noticed her kind demeanor and how knowledgeable she is. She took time to explain things to me and did not rush the appointment in any way. This was a huge relief for me as a patient. I have never met with a Dr that genuinely cares about my well-being like she does. She asks me questions no other Dr has ever taken the time or interest to ask. She dug deep to understand the root cause to an issue I was having and I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate this about her. It is obvious that she genuinely cares about my health and well-being. I really appreciate everything she has done for my health and I will continue to meet with her and I recommend you meet with her as well!
This thanks is long overdue, but I wanted to say that my dear Katherine’s life has changed thanks to your excellent care. She basically used to pass out after every meal, and her low energy was a source of constant worry for both of us. She’s just navigated an extraordinarily difficult and rewarding year professionally, which I don’t think she could have pulled off without your help.
We’re both very grateful, thank you.
To those seeking care: If you have a condition for which corporate medicine offers only symptomatic treatments, or extreme, invasive, and damaging procedures as solutions, I highly recommend working with Dr Abernathy. She will find the most gentle, natural approach. For the skeptics out there, I can tell you from personal experience that the data driven rigor she brings to her diagnoses and prescriptions far exceeds anything I’ve experienced with any corporate doctor.
Beneath all of that is the fundament of medicine: care. The care Dr Abernathy takes with your case is extraordinary. And when you think of what you pay your normal doctor for the paint-by-the-numbers, one-size-fits-all, assembly-line care he gives, you realize that Dr Abernathy’s fees are extraordinarily reasonable as well.
Chronic suffering is never cheap. Getting better is invaluable.
Thank you Dr Abernathy!
I was at a point in life where my health was rapidly deteriorating and I suffered from the effects of long covid. I went to traditional physicians who were not of any help. Dr Abernathy was a real medical detective in helping me find out where I was out of balance. Through tests and advice, she got me on the path to good health and a year later, I feel better than I have in years. I can’t say enough good things about her.
I have been a patient of Dr. Crystal Abernathy since April of 2004. I initially met with Dr. Abernathy as a follow-up to my treatment for breast cancer. After seeing a variety of specialists associated with my treatment for cancer, it has been very beneficial to consult with a naturopathic doctor who takes a holistic approach to my care. I have continued to see Dr. Abernathy to improve my overall health and have been grateful for the excellent care she has provided. I have found her to be consistently thorough, knowledgeable, and professional.
Dr. Abernathy fixed so many things with my health. I was puttering along with no energy, could hardly get out of bed in the morning, fuzzy brain all the time, and getting continual sinus infections–for which two operations did not help. And I could go on and on. What I liked best about Dr. Abernathy is that she bases her treatments on solid data from comprehensive testing. I faithfully followed Dr. Abernathy’s supplementation and feel like a new person; plenty of energy, clear brain, almost no sleep problems, and only one sinus infection in a year—which came after a period of my forgetting my supplements for a while.
Dr. Abernathy is an excellent doctor. She is absolutely committed to getting to the root of my health problems. All my other doctors just wanted to give me drugs for the symptoms but Dr. Abernathy digs deep until she finds the cause and then starts treating the cause, as opposed to the symptoms. She’s very persistent and won’t give up until she helps me achieve wellness. Although I have very health various health issues, I’m on the road to wellness. Dr. Abernathy is the most thorough and knowledgeable Doctor I’ve ever had. It’s comforting to know that she’s treating me with naturalistic means that are healthy for my body and not toxic. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone.
She is a wealth of helpful information and knows what she is talking about. It’s been a pleasure to work with her over the last 5 years.
I began seeing Dr. Abernathy because I was experiencing a sour and metallic taste in my mouth. After seeing my regular doctor and various specialists, I was told that in time this taste would go away but no one could give me a diagnosis. I scheduled an appointment Dr. Abernathy. Dr. Abernathy went over my medical history and diet and put me on various supplements. After several months I started to see improvement in my condition.
Dr. Abernathy is very professional and extremely thorough. Dr. Abernathy took the time in reviewing my status each time I met with her. I am happy to say I am feeling much better and the taste in my mouth has completely gone. I would recommend Dr. Abernathy to my family and friends.
I first met Dr Abernathy a little more than 9 years ago. It has absolutely changed my life. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field of naturopathic medicine as well as medicine & wellness in general… Always giving new and innovative suggestions and treatment methods that will improve your overall health. She does not expect you to take her word and her word only. Any and everything she tells you is based on much research and many articles & real life examples that she has found all over the world both past and present. She is very forward and transparent about showing you these things as to where her thought process has come from. She has helped me and will help anyone find the absolute most economical (financially I mean) way to get lab tests done, where to go to see doctors and or Specialists that can help any health concern that you would have without killing your pocket.
I saw a recent review that said she is defensive if you do not agree with her and she can have a superior attitude (I think those were the words used). Nothing could be further from the truth. I don’t know the person who left that review, and it does not matter that I do not know them. I know Dr. Abernathy. I have known her for over 9 years as a patient. She is extremely open and open-minded to all different opinions and ways of thinking and attitudes and treatment methods and is more than willing to discuss anything that you would agree or disagree with. She has absolutely unequivocally never had a God complex or anything remotely close to that. Anyone who would suggest that she has a superior attitude is flat-out 100% WRONG. And I would respectfully tell anybody JUST THAT if I were to ever have a chance to have a discussion with them. That is all there is to it. I’m adding this to my review because it is just very sad that in our society of impatience and social media anyone can throw shots to tear down someone’s character or business reputation… I feel the need to defend someone who I know is absolutely awesome in the field of Health and Wellness. As I said I’ve known Dr. Abernathy for over 9 years, and I wish I had known her for more than 20 years. She is the second most important person to ME (because let’s face it what do we have if we do not have our health) behind only my mother and father. Please understand, if you want to live a better and healthy life, and anything that would affect that from your overall health… Do yourself a favor and set up an initial consultation with Dr. Abernathy. She is not going to talk you out of seeing your doctor again. She is not going to talk down about regular medical doctors or general medicine at all. Quite frankly she is more than open to working with people in all facets of the medical industry to make sure that you are as healthy as you can possibly be. This is how she was with me the first time I ever met her. She has been that way with me ever since as well.
My time with Dr. Abernathy was fantastic. She was fully focused and engaged during our appointment. She was incredibly thorough, knowledgeable, and warm. She worked with me to tailor a treatment for me… which was indeed successful! Many thanks!
She’s very responsive to your questions, does her best to meet your individual needs, and keeps a very thorough record of you; obviously reviewing it before she responds to your questions. I’ve NEVER had such an attentive doctor.
She has also thoroughly researched the best products and supplements that she recommends to you based on your blood work to make sure it is the purest and most beneficial for you.
I highly recommend her.
I’m 29 and went to Dr. Abernathy because I was extremely fatigued and had really low energy, despite that fact that I’m extremely fit and eat super healthy (have been an athlete my whole life). I also would get cold/flu symptoms from the simplest things (intense workouts or eating a sugary dessert) and have to sleep for 3hrs to try to recover. It was ruining my life and really affecting my overall well-being.
After having my blood tested and changing my supplements to what Dr. Abernathy recommended, I’m happy to say 2mos later my energy has significantly increased and I don’t have to take daily naps like I used to! We’ve recently implemented a new treatment plan to strengthen my immune system from sicknesses. Thanks Dr. Abernathy for your expertise!! 🙂
Dr. Abernathy was the only one who provided any sort of help and support when I was first floxed from an fluoroquinolone antibiotic. She not only worked on the direct impact FQT had on me, she also started from the beginning and went over every detail of my medical history. I am super thankful for her help!
I’m getting better and better thanks to Dr. Abernathy! She is always very attentive, guides me with compassion and an open mind. One year ago, I was in terrible shape. Now, I feel strong and even more balanced emotionally.I am healing! (from Facebook): Had my follow up visit today. Dr. Abernathy took the time to explain my lab results and what they really meant. She recommended a plan for me and , as always, provided resources (sites, articles, research etc)…She guides and empowers her patients. Isn’t that what a ” real” doctor is supposed to do? She obviously cares about her patients. Highly recommend!
If you are located in North Carolina Or South Carolina, Dr. Abernathy is definitely WORTH IT! I recommend her to any and everyone. I have even had family travel from surrounding areas and they love her as well! 5 STARS!
Very smart person, I’ve known her for 38 yrs. I highly recommend.
A great doctor and a great person!
So far I’m feeling so much better compared to almost a year ago. The supplements I have been recommended have made a world of difference. I’m no where near where I used to be but I still have ways to go yet. It’s one step at a time and one day at a time. 5 ’s always the way!
Dr. Abernathy helped me reverse my severe cervical dysplasia precancerous cells (CIN 3) in 5 months! After having a LEEP procedure last year that didn’t work and left me with traumatic side effects, as well as wanting to have children in the near future, I wanted to try healing naturally. Dr. Abernathy spent hours with me for my initial appointment in order to gain a holistic clinical picture and always responded quickly when I had questions. In addition, she works with an organic farmer/ND who makes vaginal suppositories to treat the abnormal cells directly and I interviewed 20+ NDs and couldn’t find anyone who also provided suppositories with their treatment plan. I would recommend her to any woman who is looking to heal their body naturally…even though my gyno said it couldn’t be done! Thank you Dr. A!
Dr. Abernathy spends lots of time (90 minutes or more) going over everything. She also has lots of research to refer you to when recommending various ways to address your health concerns. She actually LISTENS to her patients and uses a wholistic approach in her treatments. I would definitely recommend her.
I would send everyone I love to see her! She changed my life and is on the way to change my husbands! After 1 year, my cholesterol is in a safe level, my digestive issues are gone and my nutrients replenished. Dr. Abernathy’s practice FAR EXCEEDS what any traditional doctor has EVER done for me!
Natural health from natural Organic treatments.
I had chronic inflammation in my hands, shoulders, and hips and could hardly sleep because of pain. After a couple months of following Dr. Abernathy’s protocol I am nearly pain free and no longer taking any pain meds and only half of the blood pressure meds I was taking. I highly recommend anyone with any health issues talking to Dr. Abernathy.
