Although I had filled out all the paperwork online I still had to fill out 4 pages of the same forms I completed online, why fill out online if you have to do it all over again at the office.

I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Avery because he was one of the few physicians that had a same day slot available. One of the main negatives about the visit was the wait time; nearly an hour in the waiting roomand roughly another 30 minutes between being seen by the MA & the physician. His bedside manner was okay. He completed a thorough assessment but made a few inaccurate assumptions along the way. Overall, I think he's a decent physician.
