Dr. Avula is a wonderful gentle physician. She listens to you patiently, gives her recommendations, taking into account your wishes. Her "bed side" manner is absolutely excellent. She has helped me through some very tough situations. I have gone to her as my primary physician for years, along with other naturopathic physicians, which she respects. I value this greatly.

I have followed Dr Avula from 80th Ave to Advocate Tinley and now to SilverCross Imediate Care. She has been my doctor from peri menopause until my present age 70. She always takes the time to talk to me about my health and I have never felt rushed. I now have my sister seeing her. I would highly recommend her. Moshe specializes in women's health.

Dr. Avula is by far, the best physician I have visited. She is thorough and caring. She spends time asking questions. I never feel rushed, and always feel at ease.
I have been a patient of Dr. Avula for several years. She is thorough and knowledgeable and has a pleasant demeanor. She followed up on a number of possible health concerns and helped prevent further medical issues.

Dr. Avula is one of the worst physicians I've ever received care from. She's the type that spends 5 begrudging minutes with you, talks over you, and openly sighs in response to questions about your health concerns. Despite my presenting with classic symptoms of hypothyroidism, she ignored my concerns, insisted I was fine and only ordered a blood test at my insistence. I didn't stay with her practice long enough to get the results back & moved to a doc that cares about her patients instead.

I feel Dr. Avula is great, very thorough but such a great bedside manner. I would highly recommend her.
