Specialties

Dr. Anthony G Avitabile Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Hospitalist

    Hospitalists are physicians who specialize in the care of patients in the hospital. The majority of hospitalists are board-certified internists and have completed the same training as other internal medicine doctors including medical school, residency and board certification examination.
    Hospitalist activities include patient care, teaching, research, and leadership related to hospital care. They have more expertise in caring for complicated hospitalized patients on a daily basis since, unlike other specialists or primary care doctors, they spend most of their day in the hospital.
    They often coordinate the care of their patients and act as the central point of communication among the different doctors and nurses involved in the patient's care. They are also the main physician for family members to contact for updates on a loved one.

Poor office response

When we first started to see Dr. Avitable, we were very impressed with him and his office staff. Recently they have all become overwhelmed with his 7000 patients, his nurse out on medical leave and have made insurance and prescription mistakes. When I had a problem yesterday with a prescription that the lab tech took from me to make a copy, I called the office. I was told they were "swamped" and no one could rectify the problem. Eventually the prescription was called into the wrong pharmacy. So today I went back into the office and was met with attitude. I asked the nurse to call my pharmacy and verify it was there. Which she did. After I left the office she called me back to say it wasn't....the pharmacy had called back and did not have the prescription. I then asked where the prescription was and found out they had called an old pharmacy. The doctor tells me it is my responsibility to update my file with the new pharmacy info. I have been using the newer pharmacy for close to two years. I am not privy to what is written in their files. Because I assumed that the nurse who was on leave had written this information in the file, I did not know that she hadn't. When I went in for my appointment, a substitute nurse only took my blood pressure and weight and the doctor did the rest. NO one asked me to verify my pharmacy and since they had been using the correct pharmacy previously, it never occurred to me that they didn't have the right information. I got into it with the nurse when she called me back. The office manager then told me not to speak to them in a rude manner. If I were rude it was only my frustration level that got the best of me. Dr. Avatabile asked me to find a new doctor. Which I will do. Frankly after the series of insurance mistakes, a misdiagnosis and the treatment from his "overwhelmed" staff (each nurse, front office and lab person complained about how stressed they were) I will happily go to another office. Usually, this doctor is sensitive to the needs of his patients. He just started to interrupt me when I was talking and refused to listen to any reasonable explanation. I have never been rude in his office previously and always appreciated good care. Unfortunately, he seems too stressed as well which concerns me for the well being of his patients.
