Human garbage with his main concern is that he gets paid,2 weeks left on chemo he refusses to refill pills cause he has not seen me in 2 months , he set my course 2 weeks on 1 week off for 12 weeks 2 months prior. cant afford to go by and give him 50$ for 3 minutes of face time with his medical practicioner when i could have droped by gave some blood and if everything was still good no visit but if not good i would have to come in , that was not even a option he had to have that 50$, unknown to him cvs had over stocked me so i had plenty to complete the cycle and he lost a patient to his and Baptists healths greed for he works for them and they did nothing about him telling the nurse while we where on the phone no show no refills exact words, if it was obits i could understand but chemo meds , how many others has he riped off????????????

Dr. Avery is gentle, compassionate, humorous and is a number one great doctor. i know I am in capable hands. He was with me 5 years ago through stage three, rectal cancer, chemo. and radiation. I have been cancer free since and I am still seeing him for followups. The staff is caring and compassionate as well.
