Clearwater, FL |
Greats nicely, asks 1-2 brief questions, then spends most of the visit inputting on the computer, seldom looks back at you, then gets up - and he is done or is sending in a nurse to give you an injection. When you go back out to reception , is when you find out when he wants to see you again. Does not really communicate much with you through out the visit, doesn't voice what he feels is happening with you and what to expect. You have to ask, in order to get an answer.

Waited over an hour and then he spent 3 minutes with me. Did not let me ask any questions. Would not go back.

Dr. Averill Administered a harsh drug and on the first night I had problems with the med I 1st called the Pharmacy for this med and they told me I need to speak to my Dr. so I called his off and left a message and 7 days later (still having issues) no phone call, this is a med that could cause serious problems if not monitored closely but he seemed to have no concerns, needless to say I got a new Dr. and when I called Dr. Averill's to cancel all future appt. then they decided to call
My impression of Dr. Averill was very poor. He did not introduce himself when he entered the room. He did not excuse himself when a staff member knocked and asked him a question, instead he just got up and left without saying anything and was gone for 10 minutes. He seemed downright annoyed when my answers to his questions didn't fit whatever form he was trying to fill out on his computer and didn't pay attention or outright dismissed my attempts to explain why I was answering as such.
