One Star

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.

great doctor

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.
