Dr Aves and his staff are phenomenal. He is persistent in ordering treatments for his patients in order to help them. He is compassionate (and very, very smart. Do not try to play him) and he listens to you. Even though I am still in severe pain, Dr Aves continues to look for ways to at least ease my pain. I am grateful that he continues to try to make my life quality of life at least a little better. At this point, I would take that and I would be grateful for it. I respect him for working extremely hard to help people who are in pain. If you’re doctor shopping for narcotics, he is not your guy. If you’re looking for a great doctor who is willing to try different treatments to help you, he is your guy. He is hardworking, honest and a great doctor. I can’t say enough good things about him and his staff. He is definitely a credit to his profession.

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.
