I recently completed cataract surgery on both eyes, and now having almost perfect eye sight in both eyes can unequivocally report that Doctor Aviles is an exceptional eye surgeon. My optometrist had recommended several surgeons to do this surgery on both eyes. I researched the backgrounds on all of them and decided on Dr. Aviles. I am glad I did. He found other problems with my eyes that the optometrist did not see such as a lesion emanating from the optic nerve. One reviewer mentioned that Dr. Aviles had a poor bed side manner. I think I can explain this. Dr. Aviles was at one time an engineer and all engineers are known to be serious workers. OK, a generalization and perhaps not statistically proven, but enough to satisfy me. (g) The important thing to me is he has the training to do a systematic and excellent job. I highly recommend him. I had many visits to the clinic he worked at and I saw many satisfied patients leaving his surgery room. He has reportedly done countless cataract surgeries. His surgery staff is also one of the best I have seen in my life and I have seen plenty of them!
Dr. Aviles has the personality of a wet leaf. I've seen him twice now, and each time I've had to wait. My simple appointment today took over an hour and a half. Although Dr. Aviles saw me waiting in the treatment room and saw the light above the door indicating that I was the next patient, he took two people before me. His attitude seems hostile, or maybe he just hates his job. I don't know, but I won't be seeing him again.
