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.

Dr. Avakian was very patient with me. He answered all my questions and explained my options clearly. His advice helped me lose 30 pounds (without any medication). He truly cares about your well-being! Thanks, Doc!!

Dr. Avakian has been my family doctor for the past few years. He never rushes in exam room and answers all my questions. He explains every medical issue thoroughly. There are Health Education Tablets in exams rooms with interesting material which makes the waiting time pass faster. The staff are caring and professional as well. I love my doctor.

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
