What People Say About Dr. Gordon Avery, MD

I had pretty serious pain in my right arm that radiated from my elbow. Dr. Avery determined it was “tennis elbow” and he ruled out osteoarthritis. He gave me a cortisone shot and the pain was gone in two days. He’s an excellent doctor with an engaging and warm personality.

I was in much pain with my right knee and got in to see dr. Avery right away. He knew exactly what it was, gave me a shot and within a day I was already feeling better and pain had subsided greatly. Dr. Avery was a life saver and I am so grateful for his help.

Saw Dr Avery for persistent shoulder discomfort and mobility issues. Had seen a PT for several visits with no improvement. He diagnosed the problem, gave me a cortisone shot, and now a month later, I’m pain free with normal mobility.
