Yes it's true he take a long time and we may not like it but when he goes into the examining room he will spend the same time with you, Dr. Avila is a very kind, caring and compassionate doctor . He has excellent bedside manners, not only will he explain everything to you as a patient but he will also take the time to explain it to your family if it is needed. I've been his patient for more that a decade he is a very dedicated gastroenterologist and i highly recommend him !!!

This doctor needs to learn how to use his time! I cannot wait there 3-4 hours every time! Office staff is so rude and the office is so noisy with loud music!
Miami, FL |
Not worth my time, money and the long wait!
Miami, FL |
After waiting for three hours for a colonoscopy nobody apologized for such a delay and the colonoscopy itself was two hours!!!! I asked all my friends, it is unheard of!!!!! After all done, I still had to wait for another hour for the doctor to talk to me. Horrible experince! I will never go there ! Nobody should.
Miami, FL |
Instead of the doctor I was scheduled to see, I was seen by this doctor after waiting. He was slow, incompetent and I still do not know what he planned for me. The office staff was worse. They do everything to avoid you but keep on talking, laughing, eating behind the counter. DO NOT GO THERE!
Miami, FL |
Thank you for everything Dr. Avila! Your kindness and attention to detail was priceless.
