Zaunklay Finnila, M.D.

Dr. Zaunklay Finnila graduated from Utica College with a degree in Biology then went on to graduate school at the University of Louisville where he earned a Master’s degree in Physiology and Biophysics. During his time in graduate school, Dr. Finnila worked in the healthcare system and for a private research company. Through those experiences his love for medicine was reaffirmed and he went on to complete medical school at St. George’s University School of Medicine.

After medical school, Dr. Finnila moved to Huntsville with his wife and completed a family medicine residency at the UAB Huntsville Regional Medical Campus in Huntsville, AL where he opened Avalon Family Care as the primary doctor in September 2020.

When he is not caring for his patients, you can often find him outdoors, flying airplanes, exercising or spending time with his family.

Laura is a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner. She received her nursing education from Auburn University and then went on to graduate school at Texas Woman’s University in Houston while she worked as an RN. She found her way into family medicine shortly after graduating in 2011.
