Dr. Aviles caught a diagnosis of necrotizing fasciitis in my arm that EVERY OTHER PRACTITIONER at Mercy Hospital missed. They were perfectly content to watch my arm rot away and my life end. After three days, Dr. Aviles was called in and he promptly made the diagnosis and rushed me to the first of 10 surgeries in 14 days. I lost some muscles in my arm, but got to keep my arm and most importantly, I got to live. Dr. Aviles literally saved my life.
Dr. Aviles is extremely knoweldgeable. We had our daughter in for an exam and he was able to accurately diagnose her issue immediately. It is relevant to explain our appointment with Dr. Aviles was following an earlier appointment with 2 other professionals in the medical profession. I would HIGHLY reccommend him. The best ortho doctor I have experienced and I personally have a long track record of issues due to my athletic career.
