"This hospital by far, exceeding my expectations. Everybody from the head physician to the orderlies from the nurses to the transport people were very polite, respectful, encouraging, loving, and accommodating of my physical, mental, and emotional needs. They treated my like I was a normal human being. AWESOME!!!!"
"After attending a Saturday seminar at Dr. Avara's Ocean Springs office, I was able to meet with him one-on-one. He is a very polite and kind-hearted man who treated me with respect. He believes that obesity is a \"disease\" and that we are now going to begin treating that \"disease\". He explained to me my options, his suggestions, and what was about to happen. He asked if I had any questions. I did not feel rushed, or pressured and I felt like he respected me and what I was doing. He reminded me a lot of my personal doctor. I would recommend this doctor to anybody considering any type of weight loss surgery."
