Dr. Awwa has been friendly and nice. The only problem I've had is making appts. the scheduling people constantly say there is no availability. I Spoke to the Dr. About this and he said he's heard this from many patients. he doesn't understand why they make it difficult . I also been booted from his office because my insurance supposedly didn't pay for a visit.

Dr. Awwa is NOT a good man. He knows nothing about with drawling people from medications, including benzodiazapines. I was his patient for two 1/2 long years. He prescribed me and tried me on: Klonopin, Ambien, Adderall, Effexor XR, Seroquel, Seroquel XR, Lexapro, Paxil, Prozac, Viibryd, Gabapentin, Wellbutrin, Concerta, Vyvanse, and many others that I cannot remember. NOTE: I was sixteen when I started seeing him, now I'm nineteen years old! He would not answer phone while in benzo withdrawal.

Ive been his patient for years. He treats my child too who's dual diagnosed w/adhd & dyslexia. She's been in serious rebellion lately but respects him very much. He's the only adult she'l listen to & he legitimately cares for our well being. I was in his subox program & was able to be 100% honest with him as I never felt judged. Sadly there was some NL office workers who went from polite to rude after I stated I was in the program. I guess nothing's perfect. But the Norwich staff is awesome!
