Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr. McAvoy has treated my two sons and I for years. He is an amazing surgeon. I trusted him to put tubes in my sons ears at a young age and take out my other sons adenoids and tonsils. Which resolved so many issues! He is willing to try medications before jumping to surgery. He has self confidence … which I think any great surgeon/doctor should have. Some of these reviews are based on people not wanting to hear the truth. Arrogance is often mistaken for confidence. You must put in the work and take the meds or do the exercises and listen to the doctor. If you are not, he will not want to hear excuses. I highly recommend Dr. McAvoy.

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.
