DR. KAREN L. ABRAMS, M.D., is the proud owner of her Behavioral Health clinic which is located at 233 E Lancaster Avenue 303 A Ardmore, PA 19003. Dr. Abrams is a board-certified family medicine physician uniquely qualified in medication management of mental and behavioral health issues. Prior to opening my office in Ardmore, PA, I practiced family medicine for 17 years with Main Line Health in Edgemont and Newtown Square, PA, earning the prestigious Main Line “Top Doc” Award. My areas of clinical expertise include depression and anxiety disorders, ADD, ADHD, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), sleep problems such as insomnia, menstrual mood issues, phobias, and general life stressors. Currently, I serve clients from Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs who need access to timely, affordable, quality medication management of behavioral health issues. If you struggle with issues such as depression, anxiety, or sleep disorders and are seeking an initial evaluation or would like another opinion, please call me today at (610) 645-6300 or send an email to [email protected] or fill out the form above to make an appointment now.

In 1987, as a high school senior, I took a leap of faith to enter a combined six-year undergraduate/medical school degree program at The Pennsylvania State University and Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, to pursue my dream of becoming a doctor. I was fortunate to attend a medical school where the specialty of Family Medicine was respected, and I could focus on my goal of helping children and adults in an outpatient setting. The biopsychosocial approach to patient care taught during my residency training at Abington Memorial Hospital in Abington, PA, not only laid the groundwork for me to diagnose an illness, but also to focus on how it affects the patient and their family on a personal level.

After 17 successful years of practicing a broad scope of family medicine, I realized that my true passion is helping people with their behavioral health issues, so that the physical issues can be prevented or lessened. The immune system does not function as well under stress; therefore, by minimizing stress, you improve your overall health and well-being. Although I had the desire and knowledge to treat many patients in my prior office setting with behavioral health conditions, I never felt like I was able to spend the time that the patient deserved, because I had to accomplish so many other tasks in that same time frame.

Dr. Karen Abrams is a Main Line Today “Top Doc” who is Board Certified in Family Medicine. Karen specializes in medication management of mental and behavioral health issues. Her areas of clinical expertise and interest include depression and anxiety disorders, ADD, ADHD, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), sleep problems such as insomnia, menstrual mood issues, phobias, and general life stressors. As a family physician, she can advise you on many medical issues that could be related to your mental health problem. These include headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux disease (otherwise known as GERD), chronic fatigue, constipation, and even weight gain. With over eighteen years of successful clinical experience in her own private office and at the Devereux Foundation, she can provide a clear direction with ease on the first visit.

Since 1996, Dr. Abrams has been a part of the medical staff that makes up the Main Line Health Hospitals; a nationally ranked and renowned team of medical staff that serves the Greater Philadelphia and its surrounding areas. She is also a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), the Pennsylvania Academy of Family Physicians (PAFP), and has been voted by her peers as a “Top Doc” featured in Main Line Today Magazine in December of 2010. Many medical doctors do not have the time, inclination, or expertise to treat mental and behavioral health issues.
