What People Say About Dr. Amer Awad, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Amazing neurologist. He had read everything in my daughters chart before he even came in the room. Asked lots of questions and listened to everything we had to say. He found her issue that multiple other doctors had missed. Not to mention he is so kind and compassionate. I’d recommend him to anyone.
