    Dr Azabal treated my husband in an emergency situation and is now his cardiologist. He has an excellent bedside manner, explains things thoroughly and is a kind person. He is also one of the most caring doctors I know, he came in to see my husband in the hospital the next day when he was not working and was late for a family event. I am shocked that there are not all 5 stars all over this page! I highly recommend him and so thankful we are under his care.

    I recommend Dr. Azarbal as he has been a great doctor for my mom. My mom was admitted to the hospital after having seen him only once. Although my mom's condition was due to a different problem (kidney malfunction), on his own, he stopped by the hospital to visit her and find out about her condition. He takes time to listen to my mom and does not rush us out of his office for the next patient. He is very caring and knows how to put her patient at ease when they need it the most.

    My father went for stent surgery. When he got into operating room, he changed his mind and wanted to leave. He was forcefully restrained and medicated to go through the surgery. He died. The report by the medical board stated that they restrained him because they did not want him to contaminate the area while leaving. My father was a dentist who practiced oral surgery in his younger days, so he was familiar with medicine. He was fully alert and capable of making decisions.
