You can never get your results on the phone and they do not have portal. The staff is horrible.

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 !!!

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.
