Dr. Dave Abel was born and raised in Pennsylvania, but he progressively migrated west; first to Idaho, and then to Alaska. The Air Force originally brought him to Alaska as part of a four-year enlistment. He met his wife here in Alaska and has made Alaska his home. Dr. Abel obtained his undergraduate degree at UAA and attended medical school at Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences in Washington. He returned to Anchorage for residency, and now calls Soldotna home. He and his wife have four boys who keep them busy. He loves biking, hiking, skiing, and camping, as well as quiet evenings reading with his family.
