Regina Pruitt is an exceptional PA (Physician Asst). She is extremely competent, professional and has great “bedside manner.” She was instrumental in getting me to“ look at other options.” I was recovering from a recent heart attack and had a serious case of insomnia. My sole intent was to seek more medication by getting her to prescribe a sleeping pill to “knock me out.” After thoroughly reviewing my situation, including my medical history, recent hospitalization and the list of current medications, Regina wisely advised to not to take additional medication. She patiently explained to me that prescribing such a “sleeping pill” would not be a good solution. She sincerely feared that the interaction of the numerous drugs would lead to a serious problem. She recommended that I use a CPAP machine with a specific face mask to help me to sleep. While I was initially disappointed with her recommendation (because I expected a “quick and easy solution), I’ve come to realize that Regina’s recommendation was much more practical and logical. It is not too often that I am very impressed with a medical professional. However, I would enthusiastically recommend Regina Pruitt if you are seeking a very knowledgable and caring Medical Professional. I found that the entire staff was a pleasure to deal with.

I totally love this doctor. He is one of the doctors in Florida that listens to his patients and does everything he can to take care of the problem. He also let you know every step of the way what's going on and why he's using the treatment methods he's using.

My visit was 100% better than my previous visit (2-star review) to this particular office (multiple doctors). This was the first time with Dr. Averill but he actually had good bedside manners and you feel like you are getting the services you paid for. I would have given Dr. Averill 5 stars if not for him, to keep looking at a Google page (couldn't see exactly) but I felt awkward, as I couldn't help but wonder if he was looking at my 2-star Google review, of his office while I was there, only a couple feet away. Regardless, the services rendered is what I expect, when going to a medical doctor. He told me to come back in a year. (smile) Thank You Dr. Averill for the effort, you corrected the wrong of your colleague.

My husband has been a patient of Dr.Averill for several years. We always felt he spent quality time with us. Just recently we have had the pleasure of meeting his PA, Regina Pruitt. She is like a breath of fresh air. She has done extensive research for the doctor, has given us exemplary care, & has shown great professionalism. She is a fabulous addition to this office.

I was very pleased with Dr. Averill. He listened to me and knew exactly how to treat me. He took his time and made me feel very comfortable. The staff was amazing. They took the time with me having me walk and timing me and were fun and funny. I wouldn't go to any other pulmonologist.
