I am so glad my primary doctor referred me to Dr. Avila, she is amazing! I had my back surgery done just 8 weeks ago and i feel incredible, im stilling in my healing process but im doing 40 squats and walking way better, i feel a lot stronger! I've couldn't ask for a better outcome and i am truly thankful to Dr. Avila for taking the time to meet me and doing my back surgery, i feel like a new person and people around me see that. I will definitely be recommending Dr. Avila to family and friends.

I have already recommended her to friends and other doctors. I will continue to do so. I worked in hospitals for over 25 years before retiring. Of all the surgeons I met and worked with, she is the most personable by far. Very caring and relational. And she is an excellent surgeon. After 3 months the scar on my 72 year old body was nearly invisible. After 6 months I am stronger and more pain-free than I have been in years.

I found Dr. Avila online when I was looking for a surgeon with good reviews and high recommendations. Dr. Avila's office was able to get me in with out a 3 month wait which was great. Her office staff was very friendly. Dr. Avila knew from looking at my past results what I needed. She performed a Cervical Fusion on my C-5 and C-6. I call Dr. Avila "Wonder Woman", because she flies from the hospital, across the street to her office, and back to the hospital. She is top notch!
