We would very much recommend Dr. Avila as a very sincere, considerate and excellent physician! A doctor really cares over and above the commercial side of his job. A doctor with a call!

Dr Avila is one one the best. I have been waiting to speak to an office person for 20 minutes hug up called back she was very rude that she was with a patient and put me on hold again really so waited another 10 minutes..Now they will not answer the phone. Never have I been treated so rude. I am a patient and have spent a lot of money here.

Dr Avila is fantastic. Explains things thoroughly, takes the time to listen to the patient and answers all questions. Takes a very balanced approach to treatment to provide proper efficacy while ensuring patient health and safety. All the things one would look for in a doctor. The only complaints would be at time the wait time to see the doctor and confusion among the staff (who are still quite pleasant) at times (it's a big office... the communication between staff could be improved).
