Dr. Abernethy was born and raised in Minnesota. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in microbiology from the University of Minnesota and earned her M.D. degree from the University of Minnesota Medical School. Internship and Residency brought her to Texas in 1997, where she fell in love with the area and the people. "I grew up in a medically-oriented family. My father was a veterinarian and my mother was a nurse. They both inspired me to pursue medical school and to become a physician. During my ophthalmology rotation in medical school, I observed numerous delicate eye surgeries and was convinced that ophthalmology was the right choice for my career. I loved the technology, the precision and the life-changing results patients could obtain from their surgery." Dr. Abernethy completed her preliminary internship in Internal Medicine at Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas and her Ophthalmology residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Her research there resulted in articles published in both the Texas Medicine journal and the Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery. She is board certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology, and she entered private practice in 2001. Dr. Abernethy is known to be a gifted surgeon with a friendly, easy-going demeanor. She enjoys all aspects of her work in ophthalmic microsurgery, particularly the ability to enhance her patients%u2019 vision and improve their quality of life.

"Another smug Doctor who considers her time to be more valuable than the patients. She successfully corrected my cataracts, but her follow up care was pathetic. She knew that I was going to have to have corrective lenses due to my prism vision and kept re-scheduling my follow-up visits. After waiting SIX WEEKS, I refused to allow another re-scheduling when they called. I was PROMISED that if I came in at their convenience, That I would be the first patient seen. I was the first one to check in, I was the first one taken back to an exam room. After waiting 30 minutes, I decided to leave. When I opened the door of the exam room, she was in the hall looking at a chart, so I retreated back to the exam chair. I heard a door close and discovered that she was with another patient that had arrived AFTER me. If I need more eye surgery, I'll see another Doctor."

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
