Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Avey "Dr. Avey believes in caring for each patient as an individual, not in cookie-cutter treatments.  He is thorough, yet friendly and caring.  Dr. Avey prescribes medication when needed but also uses common sense over-the-counter treatments, physical medicine treatments, and herbal or vitamin therapy when appropriate.  He always pays attention to the high cost of many of today's medicines and helps his patients get treatments they can afford.  His staff is also very helpful and courteous.  They too care about each one of our patients."

Dr Avey has been taking care of my wife and I for now 2 years. He is an excellent PCP, listens to our concerns and has a great office staff.

Love Dr.Avey !! But am very disappointed in the customer service provided by the front desk receptionist. She is very short and rude. Always feel like I have to be on my toes to ask questions or make appointments. If I didn't like Dr. Avey so much I would find a new physician.
