Dr. Averch is the most knowledgeable, capable specialist I have ever dealt with. It is a major loss to the Pittsburgh area to see him leaving the practice. He saved my life with his superior skill and attention to details.

July 25, 2018

Provider came across as rude and condescending and did not behave in a professional manner during our first-time visit.

Dr. Averch, and his resident, were both knowledgeable, listened to me and thoroughly explained my earlier test results, the clinic's philosophy regarding my questions, and thoroughly answered all my questions. It was a good experience.
