Just up and left his practice. Poor uncaring doctor. Treats his patients and staff poorly using profanity, insulting and degrading speech. Do not see Dr.Avitabile if you value your health!

I have been going to Dr. Avitabile for 10 years or so. I recently tried to schedule an appointment for an annual preventive care/wellness visit per my insurance co. at my employer. The office staff were rude and gave me the run around about what to officially call the visit. They finally told me on the 3rd call to go find another Dr. permanently! They said I had not been there in 6 years as if I had insulted them? ok.. Dr. A is great I loved him as my Dr. but his office staff are extremely rude.
