The worst doctor I've ever seen .she has not passion for her job . Never let you ask questions ,she saw my 2 years old who had pneumonia and ear infection for 5 minutes ??My son was sick for almost a month and she always said it's normal,I've been taking him to the ER so they found it he had pneumonia.i don't recommend her to any parent.

Actually I seen this type of doctor in my life... very bad experience with her..this was my first and last time to visit her...be careful to find a good doctor for your little ones.

There should be a way that you can take starts away! This doctor is awful. The office staff is pretty nice, but "everything is normal" when you state a complaint to her. For over a year, I kept bringing up the same concerns, and she kept saying "it's normal" After the 3 visit to the ER I changed doctors, and now my child is scheduled for surgery in December, because it was not normal.

Came in for new patient visit with Dr Avala with my 5 month old. Was very upset that we waited for 30 minutes in the cold room, where my baby was only in a diaper, before Dr Avala came in. She was literally in the room with us for about 5 minutes before she left. She did not even try to connect with my child and I, being the parent. Came off as very unfriendly and distant! Do not recommend this doctor!

horrible doctor! forgot my baby's prescription! then made us wait 6 more hours until she was had time to fix the mishap. we sat in front of safeway pharmacy (with baby screaming the whole time). they never apologized. my baby, 3 mos old, she misdiagnosed, never calls back when paged, and will not give me a referral to see a specialist because she says there is nothing they can do that we cant do. in the mean time my baby has been to the ER 4x and the Urgent Care 2x in a 4 month period!
