Dr.Avendano one of the few physicians I feel warrants five stars. Not only is he a skilled cardiologist he is also compassionate and listens. Never rushed and he gives you his full attention with a smile. He was instrumental in saving my 96 year old mother when others failed her. He has been my cardiologist since moving back to Texas and can unequivocally recommend him and I have to many friends.

I have never met a Doctor so caring about his patient as he does. His always has a smile on his face, he can't always feel that good but he keeps smiling . There is no Doctor , that I know of with his conviction. I think he should hold classes for other Doctors , of coarse I know with all the patients he has he doesn't have time. Have a BLESSED DAY !

My mother had a heart attack in the middle of the night, we called 911 and arrived at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands, at 2:45am we were met by Dr. Avendano.I knew him and we immediately recognized each other and he assured me he would take great care of my Mom. My mother's physicians are in the Texas Medical Center, and initially we wanted to be transferred right away.His calmness and his compassion immediately made me know we were in great hands, we are now seeing him instead of going to TMC.
