Care Philosophy

First and foremost, my goal is to establish a relationship with a patient. We identify the problem, then we work together to gradually decrease the pain and increase the level of activity, even if our starting point is just getting them comfortable enough to rest, then getting them out of bed and out of the house. Through therapy I want to empower my patients to be able to have an active part of their own healing process by just being able to do a little more each day.

Didn't help me at all. Only interested in me being a gunea pig for injections that don't work.
in Santa fe, Texas |
I don't find doctors I like and want to see, I will honestly deal with a cold or flu just because it's so hard for me to find someone who seems to want to get to know me as more than a dollar sign, I was so blessed when my old pain management dr screwed up several appointments in a role and wouldn't fill my meds because of his front office screw ups, being that I had to find a new dr I was so thrilled when my first pick turned out to be someone who wanted to know me not just my mone.

Dr. Aves is not a pill pushing Doctor---he listens with his heart. I had been to a multitude of Doctor who merely pushed pills at me for me severe back & neck pain. Dr. Aves took his time to review my records, medications and talk WITH me not AT me. He does not make the attempt to have every patient fit into a "cookie cutter system". As a result of his medical regimen he compiled specifically for my pain and my medical needs, my pain has decreased and my quality of life his increased.

in Houston, TX |
I only wish I looked at all medical reviews on this dr before interacting with him!He does not listen and only cares about himself and money and his appearances, and is horribly rude if you don't follow his instructions. And no I don't want more steroid injections, they are just a temporary band aid that will only make things worse in the long run. After my bad experiences I find out that he has scores of 1.5/5 on other dr review sites! at least I know I'm not alone.Shocked he still practicing!

The staff alone made my experience worth it.

in Cypress, TX |
I was diagnosed with Lupus in 2005. I have had 7 knee, 3 back, 1 shoulder, and 2 stomach surgeries. I had Doctors put me on high doses of pain medication, however they never offered anything else. When I was referred to Dr. Aves his first priority was to get me out of pain. Then he starting working with me and changing my medication around, in less than 60 days he was able to cute my pain medication in half. I am now on less medication and in less pain than ever. I owe him everything.
Spring, TX |
I've seen a dozen doctors over the course of 1 1/2 years because of a sudden onset of chronic migraines. Dr. Aves is the FIRST doctor who actually took his time and I truly believe he cares. I've been a patient for about 3 months now and I am very thankful I found him. I know that he's going to be able to help me.
