Patient Comments (6)
in Denver, CO |
Dr. Azar dismissed my complaints of great foot and some hand pain as "don't worry it will go away" . nearly 13 years later i still suffer great pain in my feet and have been told by multiple neurologists that the chemo Azar prescribed caused my condition and will never go away! Her know it all attitude and her dismissive tone as to my cancer was very off putting. I would never recommend her as a cancer doctor or any other activity in the fields of medicine!
Sahuarita, AZ |
Dr. Azar may be a good Dr., but she treats her staff with unbelievable rudeness. She could use a refresher course in manners, just because you are a Dr. does not give you the right to treat others like she does. Her attitude towards me, as a new patient, has made me want to have no further dealings with her. Life is too short and these health problems too serious to allow anyone to talk or treat with her abusive attitude.
Tucson, AZ |
I have complete confidence that Dr. Azar is treating both me and my disease with the best possible treatment. Cancer is a scary word, but Dr. Azar helps put you at ease. You will get the best care and the truth from her.
in Green Valley, AZ |
She has treated me for post operative renal cancer, stage 3, and I have had no further concerns. The staff is always professional. The place is clean, blood tests are on site. AZAR is very direct, she will tell you exactly what she is thinking, and she did adjust her estimation of my situation. She likes dogs.
in Green Valley, AZ |
I have complete confidence in Dr. Azar and trust her to give me the correct treatment. I would (and have) recommended her to others. She has an air of positivity that gives me confidence that I can overcome this disease.
