Verified Patient Reviews
I felt very comfortable and found Dr. Avila to be very knowledgeable and made me feel at ease.
The zocdoc appointment did not work. The office was not aware I was coming and was running an hour and a half behind. The receptionist told me to call for appointment and recommended I not use zocdoc.
i made appt on zocdoc. The office called back stating that Zocdoc is not a good way to make appt . They want me to call the office from now on.

He explained everything thoroughly and didn't push for the most invasive treatment. Reviewed my medical history. Great bedside manners and made me feel at ease. Would highly recommend.
easy to talk to. He also paid attention and was very consederate
I was very impressed with Dr. Avila. He was very professional and took his time explaining various aspects concerning my visit.
Never go here.... Unless you are ok being treated like a sheep with insurance. Their staff is emotionless and there procedures are not solid. They don't link with ZocDoc through there computers. They had no idea i was coming, even after I spent 20 mins at home online filling out the paperwork...A matter of fact the girl sounded like a robot at the front desk as she slide open and glass shield to "welcome" me. After repeating my name and her confirming she didn't have me in her system says oh "you are here for your vasectomy". Nope not at all, unprofessional at its finest.. Good luck if you go here.
Long wait time and not that many people waiting. Was told they were short a couple of people. Dr was professional and answered questions directly which struck me as he knew what he was talking about.
Very personable and professional had all the information we needed.
