The staff was very friendly and efficient. Dr. Avitabile took the time to converse and evaluate me as a new patient and that meant the world. All too often in the past, I had undesirable visits with physicians and this was such a fantastic experience. I am so happy I found this facility and team!

As opposed to staff physician at the city's northermost hospital where I hardly got time to wave at my physician; and was lucky if I got 10 seconds of conversation, I choose Dr Avitabile for his patience and his willingness to treat patients as something other than production line "get these clients out of here as quick as possible" mentality. With him I am a person and appropriate time to address my situation is typical. A big thank you to Doc for treating me like a person, not someone who has to be rushed out the door to make way for another patient who can be billed.

I have not been to a Male MD in many years. I have always felt that they never listen to what you say or understand what problems you deal with being a women. Dr. A is not that type of doctor. He takes the time to listen to what you say. He will spend as much time with you as you need to feel like every concern has been addressed. My anxiety was put at ease the first 5 minutes of speaking with him. He is a wonderful doctor and would highly recommend him.

Since coming to Dr. Avitabile I have had an extremely positive experience! He is a very laid back doctor that will take his time to answer your questions and unlike a lot of doctors I’ve seen in the past, I’ve never felt rushed or overlooked in the least bit. His staff is very pleasant, timely, and consistent. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great doctor!

Dr. A is rare among physicians; he engenders trust, he listens, and never rushes you out of the room. I have been a patient for over a decade, and appreciate everything he has done for me.
