Office staff is much to be desired.....don't call back for 3 days......doesn't seem interested in patients concerns.....seemingly has own agenda..

Really Fabulous Doctor!

My first visit today to Dr. Avendano ~ I'm potentially a difficult patient because I refuse to wait more than 45 minutes, I expect to be told at the front desk if a doctor is running really late. Dr. Avendano was extremely prompt. I was called back to the patient room after waiting approximately 8 minutes, hadn't even finished filling out paperwork. Once inside, my vitals were taken & shortly after that, the doctor walked in. How refreshing! He was great, very attentive particularly with family background illnesses. He has a good sense of humor and a really great laugh. I thoroughly enjoyed his bedside manner. He was not in any hurry at all. The office is very updated with modern technology, the staff was system savvy. He ordered tests for me, which the other doctor I previously saw did not! He was very thorough in our plan and requested a two week follow-up. I now feel more comfortable and relaxed mostly due to his "complete" examination. If anyone is seeking a great Cardiologist, I highly recommend Dr. Avendano.

I recommend Dr. Avendano

I have been taking my mother-in-law to see Dr. Avendano for almost 9 years. He put in her first pacemaker at that time and has recently put in her 2nd pacemaker. Each time we see him in his office he comes in the room with a smile on his face and is very congenial and caring, and explains everything accurately. We have never felt rushed. I definitely would recommend him to anyone needing to see a cardiologist.
