- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I switched doctors because the one I had been seeing kept forgetting to call in my prescriptions and I got unacceptable care. So I started seeing Dr. Avula, first thing he wanted me to try sleep apnea treatment which I declinded (he specializes in this). I have to let them take blood even for refills. I've made appointments only to get there and be told it wasn't recorded.

He is an excellent diagnostician,caring and networks well with others. My only complaint is that I have had many long waits. They take walk Ins and that is not bad as they are usually seniors in bad shape. I have waited up to two hours and am a chronic pain patient. It doesn't help that he is the only doctor in smith's grove. Wish there were more doctors like him so the office wouldn't be so crowded. Polite staff.
