I saw Dr. Avalon in June 2016 I was diagnosed with surgical fixation Lisfranc surgery . He was very very unprofessional told me he would do the surgery called me eight hours later to tell me he did not want the responsibility . Thank the Lord I found Dr. Mark Solomon he was wonderful!very knowledgeable about my injury had the surgery done to days later and now I'm walking 3 1/2 months later thanks to Dr. Mark Solomon .

His office is always packed. They make you wait an hour + to have an appointment that lasts 2 minutes. They schedule appointments 10 minutes apart. Also, they would not even give me my simple MRI results over the phone or pick them up. They said I had to schedule another follow up appointment. So unless you want to spend the day at the Dr, don't go to this office !!!
in Roselle, NJ |
Do not see if you are in actual pain and over weight. I was told that I have no cartilage in my knee and he will not give me any pain relief. When I asked about an injection that is supposed to help Luberacate, I was told due to my size I would need a radiologist to administer the injection. I said ok. He then said I have to be hands off on this situation and left the room.

Dr. Avallone performed rotator cuff surgery on me on May 5. The pre-op appointments and the day of surgery interaction with Dr. Avallone were informative, expertly handled, with superb bedside manners. The surgery went off without a hitch. He provided the On-Q drip medicine so that the first days after surgery I felt no pain. Post-op appointments have been filled with information about my recovery, his goals for my recovery, and compassion. He is one of my best doctors, ever.
