What People Say About Dr. Amir-Ahmad Azari, MD

Dr Azari is my wife's doctor, and performed her robotic assisted total laproscopic hysterectomy. He was the 4th doctor she had been to seeking help for her 10cm+ fibroid, and the first who treated her with the compassion a woman deserves when struggling with the pain and complications she was experiencing. He has been understanding, empathetic, and encouraging every step of the way. He is a wonderful doctor, and great surgeon. His office and nurse support staff are also wonderful.

Dr. Azari is wonderful. He and his amazing team worked with my insurance company to get the medically necessary robotic assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy approved even though the robotic portion is not normally a covered benefit. Dr. Azari is very thorough in testing and in explanation, always open to questions and making sure that you understand exactly what is needed and why. My surgery went extremely well. I was home hours earlier than I expected to be. I was back to work on light duty in just over a week and am still doing great. My pain level has not been greater than a 3 since the surgery. I would recommend both Dr. Azari and the robotic assisted surgery for anyone needing a hysterectomy. The recovery is amazing.

I was refered to Dr. Azari after a complicated history and was anxious. Dr. Azari was very thorough in his approach, evaluating test results and performing additional tests to ensure he had a complete picture of the situation. He then presented his conclusion and multiple options. He provided the information I needed to make the best decision for myself. He is professional, respectful and thorough. He ensures that you understand and is willing to answer as many questions needed so you feel comfortable with the results. I highly reccomend Dr. Azari to any woman, especially those with complicated histories.

Dr. Azari is highly skilled and knowledgeable, patient, professional, prompt, and kind. His nurse Timika and the rest of the office staff are very nice as well. My hysterectomy by Dr. Azari went perfectly with no complications and a very easy recovery. Excellent care!

Dr Azari has been fantastic. I had been told by other physicians that a hysterectomy would be very difficult for me because of other abdominal surgery that left a lot of adhesions and scar tissue. Dr Azari explained everything clearly and I felt completely safe in his hands. My robotic laparoscopic surgery was a huge success. He also took the time to clear up my scar tissue and adhesions. I will highly recommend him to anyone facing surgery. Especially those that want someone who cares about them and their recovery. Dr Azari looks at the long term success, along with the immediate issues.

I would highly recommend Dr. Azari! He spent time listening, asking questions, and thoroughly reviewing my medical history leading to my condition. He explained all of my options to include the benefits and risks in an understandable manner. He is compassionate, has a wonderful bedside manner and I trust him completely. My surgery has been a success, and I have been relieved of the chronic issues that had persisted for several years.

It's always scary to find a new doctor; Dr. Azari has been absolutely wonderful. He listens to your concerns and offers precise and accurate information and advice. I recently underwent a hysterectomy that went amazingly well. I was back to work in two weeks and feeling fantastic by the end of my third week of recovery. I have been through years of treatment including infertility, I wish I would have found Dr. Azari sooner, my journey would have been so much easier. Debi G.

He ACTUALLY helped me. I had been to many other doctors (whom I knew and trusted) and none of them could give me answers or solutions. Dr. Azari has incredible bed side manor and truly listens to his patients.

Brilliant, kind and honest! Dr. Azari performed a minimally invasive hysterectomy on me. My surgery was extremely successful, in spite of my more challenging circumstances. He was always honest with me and allowed plenty of time for my questions. Dr. Azari is a highly skilled surgeon and a master of his craft. Our community is fortunate to have him. I hope he never leaves.

Dr. Azari is amazing! He did emergency surgery on me in the middle of the night when I had complications from a miscarriage. He is very professional and caring and I feel very blessed to have such a wonderful doctor take such excellent care of me. My family and I can not thank you and your staff enough.

Dr. Azari was my OB-/GYN, he's no longer with the Baptist Medical Group and I don't know why, he is a great provider. His staff is very sweet and caring, and I'll miss going to see him. He took care of me very well, and I wish I knew where he was moving to so I could go there!
