My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Avezzano since 2000. He has been pleasant, patient, reassuring, completely transparent about what to expect in a procedure, knowledgeable and compassionate in all ways. We have had colonoscopies and endoscopies with an endoscopy coming up in two weeks. Easy to get to see him, office is clean, staff is friendly, wait time is reasonable. We recommend him without reservation.

I visited Dr. Avezzano after experiencing severe abdominal pain. Not only did he spend over an hour listening to all of my symptoms, feelings, and concerns, but he also called two separate doctors in other fields to consult with them on the issue to determine a diagnosis and a game plan. Despite his full schedule and busy day, he never appeared rushed or distracted. I left feeling heard, valued and as though I have someone on my team supporting me on my way to health. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Avezzano is one of the nicest doctors you will ever meet. I am a senior in college and had been struggling with gastro problems for many years. Finally, I was fortunate enough to find him. He really listens and tries everything in his power to help you. Now, I feel so much better and would recommend him to anyone struggling with the same thing.

Dr. Avezzano and his friendly and thorough examinations have made a doctor with visit with him an absolute pleasure. He is worth the wait and his full attention to you is palpable. His staff from the front desk to the triage, lab and scheduling department are very professional and accommodating. The nurses in the Infusion Suite are very personable and sweet, especially Nurse Cathy. She is Fantastic. The ambulatory surgical center is also excellent. I have and will continue to recommend them.

Dr. Avezzano has what most physicians lack today, bedside manner and an updated knowledge in his field. I have recommend Dr. Avezzano to many friends who has shared the same feeling as me. His practice is a true reflection of his call to detail and to see that the patient comes first and is treated with respect.
