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.

My experience with Dr. Avakian has been great. Dr. Avakian is personable and always addresses my concerns and health issues without rushing me. I was hesitant to let any doctor remove my birthmark on my arm. I had heard people getting good results of his surgeries, so made an appointment for a consultation and felt confident to let him remove my birthmark. Few months has passed and I could not be happier. My whole family goes to him. My 92 year grandma loves him!

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.

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.
