What People Say About Dr. Efthymios Avgerinos, MD
Reply Flag
From the moment I walked into Dr. Avgerinos exam room and met him I was put at ease. I was told by my primary physician how difficult the surgery could be. He explained every aspect of what needed to be done so I would have proper blood flow restored to my legs and once again be able walk more that 50 feet. The surgery was performed perfectly with no complications and I was walking 400-500 feet 3-4 days after while still in hospital. After 8 days (6 in the hospital) I'm home and walking more.
