Had an MRI performed on my shoulder here on a late Sunday evening. Pretty cool that they offer weekend times, and especially in the evening. The lady working the desk was super friendly and pleasant and the tech that conducted the MRI was the same. Had some laughs and good convo while I completed paperwork. There was no wait time and the MRI was a breeze. All questions I had were answered thoroughly and I felt comfortable the entire time I was there. I wish every encounter w/ a medical office/workers was this good!
Please avoid this place. They forgot to ask me about any metal objects before the MRI. I am a patient, and hence did not remember to take out my locker key they give. After 30 minutes in the MRI, I got very warm towards the end. The following two days were hell and felt a burning sensation over that area where my key was. More than likely I suffered from a thermal burn due to the negligence of the MRI tech in failing to ask me about any metal objects. I have tried to contact the manage to get an explanation but so far it has been to no avail. I will be following up with the State Medical Board.
First off, there is always free parking which is nice! Secondly, I am a patient of Dr. Anthony Avery and he is phenomenal! Knowledgeable, honest, and made me feel very comfortable with him conducting surgery on my ankle. I am in recovery mode from ankle surgery and have almost no pain. I highly recommend this facility and Dr. Anthony Avery.
I wasn’t too impressed by the staff at the front desk. I understand that they have a lot of patients and families to deal with, but they seemed to have been kind of dismissal. I was beginning to doubt my decision to take my 76 year old mother to the practice. But once we were called inside, everyone was super helpful and professional. The gentleman (nurse) who brought us in to take her vitals and info, was kind, helpful and very professional. I was very impressed by Dr. Avery, who came in and immediately decided what he needed to do to help my Mother’s pain. He administered a shot and then directed her to get an x-ray. The technician there was very efficient and helpful as well. Dr. Avery, once again stepped right in and shared with us that he was right about what he suspected with my Mom’s shoulder. He didn’t make us wait till after the report and films were done. The whole process was fast and convenient. I would recommend Dr. Gordon Avery to anyone who needs an Orthopedic. Thank you!
When I fractured my foot, the ER doctor recommended Dr. Avery. I’m so glad she did! He’s competent, pleasant, and went out of his way to help me find solutions that work for me (ex: took into account the flight of stairs I need to climb to get home). I really appreciated that he didn’t make me bother with additional imaging (as the fracture was obvious). Saved me from having to spend more money, and saved me from unnecessary radiation exposure.
