Five Stars

I have been seeing Dr. Avvento for close to 20 years. I have never experienced the caring and support, not to mention his knowledge of the situation, I have received from both the Doctor and his staff. He truly cares about his patients. If you were ever in need of his services I would very highly recommend Dr. Avvento
