Dr. Avella is not only an excellent orthopedist but a caring and kind person who feels the pain of the child who walks into his office. In the summer of 2011 our daughter fell off the monkey bars and sustained a serious elbow fracture. To make matters worse, it was already late in the evening, but Dr. Avella waited for us past closing time. When we arrived at his office he was extremely kind and supportive to us.
Rather than leaving the operation to the next morning, which is what many doctors would have done, he arranged for a quick admission to the hospital. Within hours of her injury he operated on our daughter's elbow.
On the day of her discharge, he came especially early so we could make it home to say goodbye to our other children who were leaving for sleep-away camp. Dr. Avella's kindness and dedication were tremendously appreciated during our time of crisis. We felt secure and fortunate to have him treat our daughter.
