We have been using Dr. Avella since before our son was born (now 9). He sat with us and explained what our son's bilateral clubfoot would be like. Nine years later and he is our doctor still. He has performed 3 surgeries and we trust him implicitly. Our son probably needs one last surgery but Dr. Avella has been waiting it out as to not over correct it. He is a gem! More doctors should be as loving and caring as he is.

Chilton misdiagnosed my daughter and missed her radial head fracture.. After s week she as still in pain. Took her to Dr. Avella and he found it right away. Don't go to Chilton for broken bones and heart related illness .

My daughter injured her elbow at 8:30 pm on a Thursday. The ER took x-rays,diagnosed it as a bone chip, wrapped her arm and sent us home. She was up all night with UNBEARABLE PAIN. Dr. Avella saw us immediately the next morning and he saw what was really happening looking at the same x-rays. She had bone and nerve damage from a dislocated elbow that popped back in wrong! Thank you Dr. Avella! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SPECIALIST!
