"Dr. Avella is one of the best physicians we've ever encountered. My husband and I are both in the medical field. There's a reason Dr. Avella has such a great reputation. He goes above and beyond for his patients and is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and resourceful. He has years of experience in his field and I'd never go to any other pediatric orthopedic surgeon.
