I have been seeing Dr. Avery for over 10 years. He is always very professional, friendly and answered any and all questions I have had. He performed two procedures on me during that time and numerous exams. I would never consider seeing anyone else. I am very perplexed as to why the other reviewer had a bad experience.
I'm no neophyte with regards to physicians, and Robert Avery had positively the worst bedside manner I've experienced in 40 years. He didn't prepare me for the ordeal he put me through; I only hope what he did was the right thing to do. He rushed me through so quickly I didn't have a chance to ask.
