Poor response

Dr. Avezzano was my internist for many years before he stopped taking patients for internal medicine. I continued with him as one of his few remaining internist patients. When I discovered I had breast cancer, I was, needless to say, very upset. When a treatment plan was figured out, I decided to call him to let him know both the diagnosis and the treatment. At the end of the day, he called me back and I explained what was going on. His response? "I hope everything goes well, but why are you calling ME?" I was shocked at the insensitivity of that comment, and given my fragile and upset state of mind, I decided that this person was not who I thought he was. I never saw him again- MY choice. Bedside Manner? Ha!

I have read the other reviews and do not agree with any negative comments. Dr. Avezzano was amazing, he was so kind and caring. He spent a lot of time with me and answered all my questions. I felt completely comfortable with him and he was extremely knowleagable. Many of my friends and family use him and are all very happy with his care.
