Very professional, answered all of my questions about my acid reflux, and explained all details about my endoscopy. He is one of the few doctors that is easy to talk to and very caring.

Dr Awad was recommended by my family doctor. He is kind, supportive and people oriented. He is professional, did a full exam and a perfect diagnosis. I would highly recommend Dr Awad

Dr. Awad provides verbal dietary instructions. Getting specific dietary adjustments to diet was troublesome and ineffective. Also, requires pre and post colonoscopy (routine)visits, both at high rates, even though he told me at the initial visit the follow-up visit was included in the cost of the initial visit. I was forced to pay the follow-up after his billing office kept after me. Finally, his staff failed to call with the out of pocket costs for the colonoscopy, even after I called again

I have stomach hernia and he prescribed me a medicine which it did not work for me so I called their office and asked for an alternative, well they called me one week later and said just get another one over the counter... Of course I changed my doctor....

If you are pregnant he will not treat you. I was told by his staff that Dr Awad doesn't see many pregnant ladies so if you need medicine for acid reflux see your gynecologist for the prescription,,, even though Dr Awad is (now WAS) my doctor. He would only tell me about medication I could obtain over the counter and would not prescribe the same medication so that my insurance could cover it. I guess if you're pregnant you're too much of a liability for him. Don't want that kind of doctor.
in Palm Harbor, FL |
He put my husband in the hospital for a feeding tube, decided not to do it, has no idea who did put the tube in and than washed his hands of any responsibility for my husband.
Tampa, FL |
He and his partner Dr. Chang run a business operation with very little flexibility for the patient. Motivated by the business side and revenue seeking with life-time prescription drugs of questionable efficacy and multiple redundant tests. Staff had great difficulty understanding my need for a sudden prescription re-fill because I was leaving town, and didn't understand that I couldn't see the doctor until I got back. Apparently that was not acceptable and so Awad dismissed me as a patient.
