What People Say About Dr. Kristopher Avant, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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 was the 3rd doctor to do surgery on my elbow. He is the greatest. I drive almost 2 hours to see him. I will ALWAYS recommend him. He is the next.

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.
