Dr Avant is one of the best Dr’s I’ve ever had. He was caring, knowledgeable and very confident. He calls his patients the next day after surgery (not his nurse) to check on them. That was very impressive to me! Dr’s just don’t do that anymore. I would highly recommend Dr Avant!!!

First off Dr Avant is an outstanding surgeon. This bad review is about his billing office. My son was a patient at Dr Avant like they did an outstanding job, when it was all said and done, we have a $20 dollar credit. I have been trying to get them to send me a check whatever time I call I get a recording from some lady named Candy at the billing office and she never returns my call.

Im Dr Avants patient the first time I met him in the office, my gut feeling told me this Man is the most amazing Dr ever! I've had to deal with a lot of physicians in my lifetime and this Man is top notch! I'm glad my back is in his care! He's amazing and compassionate and understands you are in pain and doesn't beat around the bush if it's serious! I'd recommend him for all orthopedic situations!

I found Dr. Avant very professional and very knowledgeable and very pleasant to talk to. I am very confident in the surgery he preformed on my arm and plan to see him again. I also saw his PA and I was introduced to him and knew exactly who I was dealing with. It was Dr. Avant’s surgery day is why I saw the PA. I also found the PA to be very knowledgeable. I am very pleased with my dealings with Dr. Avant’s office and all his staff.

His office allows the PA to seemingly pose as Dr. Avant without proper introduction and identification in scheduling and during visit. We were told he supports his PA without knowing the advice given and we were given the run around on a break and careless instruction. We were then told Dr. Avant will not return phone calls and requires an office visit to speak with him about a past appointment. He is only available two days a week for appointments which require a full payment, copay or otherwise. Our impression is a completely careless Doctor’s office. And we will not return a third time. We will go some place more professional that actually cares.

Dr. Avant was very professional, kind, and compassionate. Less genericly he was down to earth and approachable. He was transparent in his process of deciding if surgery was the best option. I did not feel pressured for or against any certain option. He repaired a torn labrum in my son's shoulder and the surgery as well as recovery with physical therapy have gone well.

Dr. Avant is amazing as well as his staff. My daughter had shoulder surgery and he was very good at explaining everything to us. He personally called the day after surgery to check on her. Everytime I’ve called back with a question his staff has promptly returned my call with an answer.

Horrible, Horrible !! When I called to make an appt. I was told that I would see the Dr. - WRONG ! His PA came in after waiting for 2 hrs ! He said to take a nerve pill and I could schedule an appt. to see the Dr in 4-6 weeks ! He doesn't even work at the south OKC office, he only works at the Yukon clinic. They have no respect for your time but want you there on time. The PA was in the room for maybe 5 mins the rest of the time he was laughing and talking in the hall. Complete waste of time !!!
