Dr. Avakian has been my primary care physician for 5 years. He is one of the most professional, caring and knowledgeable doctors I’ve known. I’m a pharmacist so I have high expectations when it comes to medical personnel and Dr. Avakian has shown me time and time again how clinically knowledgeable he is with all disease states and how aggressively he treats diseases and conditions for the better of his patients. More importantly, Dr. Avakian is really passionate with his medical care.

I would highly recommend Dr Saro Avakian to who are looking for a family doctor; I take my mother to his office and I have seen how he cares about his patients by doing routine checkups, following up previous problems and spending a lot of time with them to make sure about everything.

We visited Dr. Avakian's office for a procedure. My wife had a recurring issue and Dr. Avakian immediately performed a few tests and diagnosed my wife's condition. More importantly, he told us what to do to improve her condition...and it worked! He took the time to explain the cause of my wife's issue so we would save a trip to his office in the future, should it come up again. I appreciated that.

Very knowledgeable and humble human being. He has all the qualities of what a real doctor must have. He is experienced and take his time to have the correct diagnosis. He is not using try and error until he finds out what the issue is. He explains very clear so you can understand the issue and always give you tips to prevent any future illnesses. I have experinced his bed side manner when my father was in the hospital, which was wonderful. He is one of the best and I will highly recommend him.

I have been to many doctors in my life, and I found that unlike many doctors, money is not a priority for Dr. Avakian and his heart is truly into being a healer. If you want a brilliant, effective and down to earth Doctor who will simply give you some real time, attention and healing, go see Dr. Avakian.

He is one of the best doctor I know. He treat you as a family member. you can trust him like trust your family. he always take time to listen to your problem and also explain all the causes that you get the problem and the best solution. His opinion is always correct and he do his best for all patients. His office staff are excellent and provide the services which other doctors do not. Like call your insurance to change your plan to pay the lowest copay. I recommend him to every one.he the best.

The Dr and the office is the worst ever that I met. Doctor is one of the careless person, never care about patients. He said patient go to ER, but not follow the patients problem in the hospital. We called his office because some medication should prescript to the pharmacy, not able talk to him for more than 2 hours after several times calling, he said you are doing harassent by calling and then said this is what it is if you don't like don't come to office. So unprofessional Doctor.

Hello my name is Rosa. I've been a patient of Dr. Avakian for the past 10 years. During this time it has been a great relationship between patient and doctor. He gives you more than enough time during each appointment for you to share your concerns, and always offers solutions for my well being. I always feel secure that Dr. Avakian will offer the best solution and treatment for me. He is the best doctor I've ever had. I feel blessed to have him as my health care provider.
