Cares very little about the well-being of her patients...

The maximum amount of time she has spent with me during an exam is 7 minutes, and I've been there three times. On the last two occasions, I had to seek second opinions. I will never go back.

BEWARE is all I can say about this QUACK. You would not believe what I went through with this place just for a routine visit. I thought it was strange that I got an appointment right away, and now I know why..anyone who goes there once, never returns. This place is the most unprofessional situation I have ever encounteredthere is something flat out wrong with the front office staff. They behave like they have mental problems for starters.they sing on the phone, they grab the phone from one another when you are calling about serious matters pertaining to your health, its unbelievable.in a nutshell this practice is all about the money. I made an early morning appointment meaning 10 a.m. and they were running an hour behindI WORK. This was unacceptable. They will find reasons to run up your bill and perform work not needed then insist you return for results..they refused to give me any information about my results until I made an appointment to return. You do not call patients and tell them that there is something wrong in their bloodwork or urinalysis and then make them wait for any information. This is a very unprofessional thing to do. Why they think people will actually return when they treat folks like this is unbelievable but they do not return. I am 24 years old and had an EKG with my physical with no heart problems in my family.add to this my vitals were not checked at all. They didnt take my temperature or my pulse.this is very BASIC in a physical much less any other appointment you would makeThis woman did not care about my concerns at all, rather I was told to BE QUIET so that she could quickly do the physical which was essentially nothing but humiliating me things were done in this appointment I have never had done in any physical anywhere else I have been in my life all humiliating. I normally am asked DURING A PHYSICAL if I need a pap smearI was told they do not do those in physicals and I would have to make an appointment for this separate..by the time I left there, I needed 4 or 5 appointments for various matters. Mind you, my MAIN CONCERN she had no knowledge of..she had never heard of a very common diseaseI was appauled..what doctor on this planet has never heard of Cushings Disease? Dont be fooled by her name..i mistakenly picked her thinking she was American..she is not. I think she had her name changed to fool people. At any rate, my physical consisted of an EKG and my blood pressure checked with a urinalysis and bloodwork and I had to make an appointment for to get my results so I get to stress out for another week. NEVER EVER AGAIN. I am half inclined to simply pick up my results and go elsewhere for interpretation which I may very well possibly do within the next few days
MOST OUTSTANDING PHYSICIAN

DR. AVERY IS THE KINDEST PERSON I HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE TO HAVE AS A PRIMARY CARE PHYSICIAN. HER BEDSIDE MANNER IS WHAT DOCTORS SHOULD HAVE AND UNFORTUNATELY, SO MANY LACK. SHE SHOULD ACTUALLY BE CERTIFIED TO TRAIN DOCTORS BEDSIDE MANNERS WHO PALE IN COMPARISON. WHEN YOU HAVE JUST UNDERGONE A MASTECTOMY, YOU PRAY FOR A DOCTOR WHO HAS THE COMPASSION OF DR. AVERY. I ONLY WISH THERE WERE MORE STARS TO GIVE HER. I HAVE MADE IT A POINT TO PASS HER CARD ALONG TO MY CO-WORKERS, IN AN OFFICE OF 200, FOR I HAVE THAT MUCH FAITH IN HER. YOU WOULD MISS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY IF YOU DIDN'T MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH HER. AND AS BOTH SOMEONE IN THE FIELD AND A NEW YORKER, I DO NOT IMPRESS EASILY AND SHE HAS IMPRESSED ME BEYOND ANYTHING NOAH WEBSTER CREATED TO DEFINE HER.
Will not be going back
