The Home Doctor was founded by Gary Abrams in 1980 and has been serving the Los Angeles County and East Ventura County since its inception.
Naturally mechanically inclined, Gary was involved with hands-on home improvement and creative projects from an early age with his father. He was raised on the Westside of Los Angeles and earned a bachelor’s degree from UCLA.
Shorty after graduation he recognized a need in the Los Angeles community for a professional home improvement, repair, maintenance and safety service company, thus The Home Doctor was born in 1980. Through years of hard work, personal service and attention to detail, the scope of work Gary handles as The Home Doctor has grown to over 40 trades providing “one call” state licensed and insured service for almost anything homeowners can need.
Some of the trades provided include plumbing, electrical, major appliances, heating, air conditioning, carpentry, drywall, painting, roofing, rain gutters, general handyman service, garage doors & openers among dozens more.
Gary and his team of skilled tradespeople have literally hundreds of years of cumulative home repair and improvement experience. Gary believes in the Golden Rule and old fashioned customer service. He personally responds to all requests for service and emergencies are a specialty.
As a way of sharing valuable home improvement information gleaned over the years, Gary has written dozens of articles focusing on basic home safety, home maintenance and how-to information for a variety of publications since 1989, including the “Los Angeles Times”, “Ventura County Star” and “Pacific Palisadian Post”.

Gary has been married to Mara since 1981 and has two sons, Jason and Drew.
