I've never been his patient, but I have had office visits with him for my kids and also another relative. Dr. McAvoy is abrupt and rather arrogant. My last visit sealed the deal...I'm going someplace else.

Don't "shop" for a doctor by looking at reviews online. I am several weeks removed from major sinus surgery with Dr. McAvoy, and the only complaint I can lodge is that I didn't go through with this surgery much, much sooner. McAvoy is a skilled surgeon and he has helped restore normalcy to my life. Extremely professional, attentive and results oriented. I can breathe for the first time in years. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing sinus surgery.

I called per a referral from our family doctor to see an ENT. Dr. McAvoy was very condescending. In my opintion, he did not listen well to the situation. He did not look at records or CT Scan from the referring physician... seemed unwilling to. Not very thorough. I would not recommend this facility or Dr. McAvoy.
