Dr Azar fully explained my options for my knee issues. Although I’m sure there are other very competent Dr’s in this field, Dr Azar puts you fully at ease I wouldn’t see any other physician.

I have been seeing Dr. Azar for some time now, and when my new hip heals up, I’m going back to him to see about a permanent solution for my arthritic and otherwise damaged shoulders.

As always, Dr. Azar was kind. I received a cortisone shot in my shoulder and he never hurts me. If I could only choose one CC doctor it would be him.

Yes I would recommend Dr. Azar to my family and friends. Dr. Azar has been taken care of me on several occasions and today he recommended to take care of my problems through other ways other than surgery. He has performed surgery on my hand and it was a very successful surgery...thank you Dr. Azar.

I have seen Dr. Azar for years and he always makes you feel comfortable. Dr. Azar immediately puts you at ease and he explains everything to you in a way anyone can understand. It isn't condescending and it's inclusive. I would recommend him to everyone who wants an awesome provider. Occasionally he cracks jokes and everyone needs a giggle when they are in pain and for one second you forget that.
