Dr. Fiorella Avant considers medicine her calling, and loves to hear each patient’s story and to treat them as she would her own family. Born in Costa Rica, she relocated to the US as a young child and spent much of her childhood in California. She moved to El Reno, Oklahoma in high school where she graduated and ultimately put down her Okie roots. She attended Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Tulsa, where she received her Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine. She completed her residency at INTEGRIS Northwest Family Medicine Residency Program. After training she joined INTEGRIS, where she has enjoyed taking care of patients in and around the Yukon community for the past 4 years.
Dr. Avant believes in nurturing the doctor/patient relationship and empowering her patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle, from newborns to seniors. She considers her calling a privilege to be part of her patients life and helping them shape their health. She enjoys the variety that comes with working with patients from all walks of life. Dr. Avant is bilingual, Spanish-speaking, and hopes to provide care for the hispanic community in Yukon, Oklahoma and the metro area. She truly enjoys all aspects of family medicine, but takes special interest in preventative care, nutritional counseling, and women’s health. Dr. Avant is excited to be moving to PHP because the direct primary care model will allow her to spend all the time she needs with her patients.
When she’s not caring for her patients, Dr. Avant enjoys family time with her husband, two daughters and her son. She is passionate about working out and maintaining her own health. She also loves being outdoors, traveling and photography.
