Care Philosophy

My treatment philosophy is patient centered and not procedure centered.  I strive to perform the best procedure possible.  However, I also do everything in my power to allow for optimal healing and minimal downtime.  In order to accomplish these goals, I spend a significant amount of time with my patients and treat each one as an individual.  I thoroughly review each patient's past medical history, past surgical history, current medications and drug allergies.  I then perform a detailed examination, pre-op anesthesia assessment, review x-ray findings if indicated and discuss my recommendations.  Patients are thoroughly informed of the risks, benefits and treatment alternatives and all questions are answered.  I believe that a well-educated patient does much better postoperatively.  You will be treated with compassion and respect at my office.  Patients will probably spend more time at my office for their treatment but can rest assured, I will do everything in my power to provide the most up-to-date/comfortable treatment and best experience possible.

The doctor is very thorough (sp?). I feel as though he knows me as well as my gp because he took the time to ask questions. As far as the actual procedure goes, he knows what he's doing and at the same time made me feel comfortable. I had absolutely no problem with the whole experience. He made sure I understood exactly what was going on, asking me several times if I had any questions.

My 16 year old son had wisdom teeth extraction. Everything was great! Ate immediately after leaving the office, McDonalds with no problems. He had virtually no pain and no visible swelling. He is on day 8 post op and doing wonderful. Didn't even need the pain medications, just Ibuprofen the whole time. Very good experience. Highly recommend Dr. Avra. He is very concerned with good speedy recovery and gives medications to make recovery time pain free and quick. Super pleased!! Thank You!!

Dr. Avra and his staff were extremely attentive, professional and kind. The office and waiting area was extremely clean. Everything was explained in an easy to understand manner and I left with no questions unanswered. Never at any moment did I feel rushed. My day started with an urgent need for care for my son and ended with a very happy patient (and Mom)!
