William T. Avara
I feel like Dr. Avara is truly confident in his practice and his believe in obesity being a disease. His offics staff is nice and supportive and knowledgeable. Having this said, after surgery at the hospital he didnt really spend but probably 2 seconds in the room at each visit (2) which was kinda disappointing. He didnt listen to my belly, look at it or anything. I have yet to get a 'check-up' call after coming home which I thought they mentioned that they would do. I also felt very rushed at my pre-registration on the Friday before at his office. I could hear them talking about running behind (I do understand that but...) and I was given soo much information in such a hurry that there was no way to process all of it right then. I still have appt cards, medicines that I start in 30 days, etc. that I have to get posted on the calender at work or I will surely forget. However when we drove back down there on Thursday for him to look at the hematoma--he was much more relaxed, alot nicer, felt more approachable etc. Lisa (office staff) always returns e-mails and I have gotten a returned call when I made a one time call to his office.Over all, I feel fortuanate to have found Dr. Avara and his staff.rn
Latest Surgery Support Comments
I just turned 40 years old. I have been overweight for about 12 years now. I am in terrible health for a 40 year old but of course I realize it could be much worse. I have high bp, diabetes, fatty liver, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome etc. My dad had his first heart attack at 49 and died from his second at 57. My mother died from a stroke at age 57 secondary to high bp. My family history is terrible! I have twin 7 year old boys who have NO grandparents (dh's parents passed away before we met) My husband has fibromyalgia and seems to never have good days anymore. Having said all of that--I defiently need to lose this weight and get healthy not only for myself but for my boys. My husband and I are all they have. You would think that would be motivation enough to push myself away from the table and start moving right? Well I hope my choice to have the VSG will be my life saver literally. Please whisper a little prayer for me if you read this as I will for everyone on this site. I am so grateful for being able to pay for my surgery and have access to OH! God has truly given me many blessings.
