At ABM we understand the importance of delivering the most contemporary therapies in a safe and effective manner. For this reason the specialists at ABM will always operate within established guidelines and adhere to strict quality control procedures. We also understand that patients, health care providers and hospital administrators may require assurance that our services are research and evidence based. It is for that reason that we are happy to provide an extensive list of references that illustrate this fact:
