This was my first visit with Dr. Gordon Avery, following a visit one year prior with his son, Dr. Anthony Avery. The father (like the son) had a very relaxed manner and was easy to talk to. The office generally is very well run and efficient, from the schedulers to the x-ray technician. Enjoyed my visit and felt that excellent care was rendered.

Have been seeing Dr Gordon Avery for 10 years +. He is not only a great and thorough physician, he has a wonderful sense of humor which puts one at ease and makes the communication flow very effective. Selfishly, I have to find a way to keep in practice for another 20 years
